No, he did not -- however: That sketch was always performed immediately prior to Intermission, for obvious reasons. :)

I've made shaving cream pies for school carnivals (pie your favorite/least favorite teacher stands were popular) and while the targets wore goggles, I always worried about them getting shaving cream up their nose. Doing it your way would have made that less likely. Thanks!

Much as I'd like one that throws pies, I'm morally unable to waste food like that. Well, unable to waste pie like that.
Got invited to a birthday party and to "Bring a Pie." So I got a good Marie Callendars Banana Creme Pie - the eating kind, not the splutting kind. Brought a big ice chest and kept it chilled all day in the car. 

Little did I know...  "I demand you hit me with it!"   "NO - You should have mentioned that before." 

Making a gag pie is easy, just ask Soupy Sales, he went through hundreds.  Wrecking a really good pie is hard.  I'm gonna hate myself if I do it...  I dood it.

Watch the old Three Stooges they used fruit pies, none of this meringue sissyfied stuff.

We're on the verge of Pumpkin Spice season... there's still room for one horrible, horrible twist.

How about one that shoots a blast of air? I've run afoul of those in many Halloween "haunted houses."

Emphasis on 'long'. And he seems to get up to enough interesting shenanigans without needing buttons.

The last real pie fight was in The Great Race.

You just HAD to invoke Pumpkin Spice didn't you? And I've got to get an oil change soon.
