Back in October 1976, Malcolm McDowell and his college buddy Dan Johnson made a pact that when they turned 50, theyd have a pie fight to celebrate their birthdays and prove they werent old.
The pie promise is finally coming true this Saturday (Sep. 20) in Wauwasota, Wisconsin, when the BFFs host a pie-throwing bash.
McDowell says 130 of their friends and family will meet at a parkway where theyll toss pie to their hearts content.
Theyve asked attendees to wear formal gowns and tuxedos to simulate a Three Stooges, high-society pie fight, and have been testing various pie fillings to determine their flingability.
McDowell explains, We think shaving cream pie is going to work the best. It cleans up easily, smells good, and wont sting when it gets in peoples eyes.
However, he and Johnson will throw actual fruit-filled pies at each other to make good on the pact.
He jokes that for their 75th birthdays, theyll throw empty Ensure cans at each other.
