RC and A MoonPie

One of Dr. McElhone's more fun adages went, sort of: "breakfast is an RC Cola and a MoonPie". At the time, I don't think I'd ever seen a MoonPie, New England and all that. Just to confirm, I consulted The Wiki, happily discovering I remembered correctly. The little grey cells aren't all done.
There is a custom for eating Moon pies with RC Cola, although the origin of this is unknown.

He also had a long held antipathy for pie charts. That's more common these days. Thanks to the folks at MicroSoft we get an R version of a different kind of "pie" chart. Not only is it a really effective way to present data, but look closely. Orange Julius Caesar is gulling you. Again.
