A pill is a pill

Another terrible pun
William Penn, the founder and mayor of Philadelphia, had two aunts: Hattie and Sophia, who were skilled in the baking arts. "Big Bill" was petitioned by the citizens of his town because the three bakeries in the town had during the Revolution raised the price of pies to the point that only the rich could afford them.
He turned to his aunts and asked their advice. The wonderful old ladies were so incensed over this situation that they offered to bake 100 pies and sell them for 2 cents lower that any of the bakeries were charging.
They were not only successful in bringing the price of pastry down in Philadelphia, but they established an historical item for the reference books.
To this day, scholars still talk about the remarkable pie rates of Penn's aunts.​

Week 42 so far so good
