Read somewhere about a controversy over where the Whoopie (Whoopee?) Pie originated, Maine or Pennsylvania? It turns out it may have been neither. I don't much care one way or another. What caught my attention is that the name probably derived from... let me post the quote:
"It is believed they really got their name from the Gus Kahn song" and a popular term used at the time to get around Hollywood censors, says Ms. Griffin.[author Nancy Griffin] It was called: "Makin' Whoopee."I don't think I'll ever see the Whoopie Pie in quite the same Light again.
