"As viscous as motor oil swirled in a swamp, redolent of burnt bell peppers nested in by incontinent mice and a finish reminiscent of the dregs of a stale can of Coca-Cola that someone has been using as an ashtray. Not a bad drink, though."--Excerpt from "The Moose Turd Wine Tasting" by T. A. Nonymous

Personal Notes:
This recipe came from the Colemans who were some of Mother and Daddy's best friends with Gulf Oil and is the "birthday cake" Ted wants every year. It is so easy and everyone loves it. If the weather is humid, just leave the crust in the oven until you are ready to put the filling in and put in the fridge. Top with more whipped cream and chocolate curls or gratings when you are ready to serve.
