Rappie Pie (Rappure) in response to the absurd Wikipedia entry

Fair de rappure. Most people think rappie pie is a universal Acadian meal, but in fact the rappure is confined to a small part of Western Nova Scotia, most Acadians eat Québec type Christmas meals like tourtiere. The rappure was not the product of thrifty Evangeline's producing starch for their husbands garments in Grand Pré, but the creation of our mixed blood Acadien grand-méres when we were exiled in Canada (New Brunswick) and no flour was available to make a suitable Christmas Eve pie. The rappure is sacred to all who make it.
