I've always taken it as a reference to a crotch (probably derogatorily female) deriving its meaning from the way your legs converge on your crotch to form a large visual slice of pie (requires some imagination).

english (why is ... so hard?) means: (ed: This is a list of some of the peculiarites of the English language. We'd appreciate any additions people can provide, or anything in a similar vein!

Another list of similar words highlighting the problems people have using English: We'll begin with a box, and the plural is boxes, But the plural of ox should be oxen, not oxes. Then one fowl is goose, but two are called geese, Yet the plural of moose should never be meese. You may find a lone mouse or a whole lot of mice, But the plural of house is houses, not hice. If the plural of man is always called men, Why shouldn't the plural of pan be called pen? The cow in the plural may be cows or kine, But the plural of vow is vows, not vine.

In what language do people recite at a play and play at a recital? Ship by truck and send cargo by ship? Have noses that run and feet that smell? How can a slim chance and a fat chance be the same, while a wise man and a wise guy are opposites? You have to marvel at the unique lunacy of a language in which your house can burn up as it burns down, in which you fill in a form by filling it out and in which an alarm goes off by going on. English was invented by people, not computers, and it reflects the creativity of the human race (which, of course, isn't a race at all). That is why, when the stars are out, they are visible, but when the lights are out, they are invisible. Can you spell Potato: If GH can stand for P as in Hiccough If OUGH stands for O as in Dough If PHTH stands for T as in Phthisis If EIGH stands for A as in Neighbour If TTE stands for T as in Gazette If EAU stands for O as in Plateau Then the right way to spell POTATO should be: GHOUGHPHTHEIGHTTEEAU The 'word' g-h-o-t-i can be pronounced in either of two ways--either: (1) : "gh" as in tough, "o" as in women, "ti" as in action; or (2) (that is, completely silently): "gh" as in weigh, "o" as in famous, "t" as in filet, "i" as in friend.(ed: this does spell fish - doesn't it?)
