Imagine if your job included taking part in a vegan pie eating contest. Tough life, right?

On last night’s “The Big Bang Theory” vegan Mayim Bialik and her costars Kaley CuocoJohnny Galecki and Jim Parsons took part in the messiest pie eating contest you’ve ever seen.

Bialik wrote about the experience today, noting that all the pies were vegan and kosher. Despite the deliciousness that must be a vegan pie eating contest, Bialik did not have the best time. Turns out, for comedic purposes, the point was not so much to eat the pies as much as it was to get as much pie on your face as possible.

Bialik wrote on her blog, “The goal of the scene was to have our faces coated with pie, not to actually eat the pie. This means mushing one’s face all over rather than consuming any pie. It was pretty nasty.” She continued, “It’s hard to breathe when you are not swallowing pie. Think about it: you are mashing your face into pie so your nose is stuffed but only when you swallow pie can you breathe. If you don’t swallow pie, both your nose and mouth are clogged with pie.”

Despite the various difficulties that must arise when your face is completely covered in blueberry goodness, we’re happy to know that not only was Mayim Bialik’s pie vegan, but everyone else also shared in the animal-free goodness.

Kind of makes me want some pie.
