Iota Eta Pi (fictional fraternity)

"Iota Eta Pi” or “I Eta Pi” is a fictional fraternity name made to sound like “I ate a pie.” “I. Eta Pi” has been cited in print since at least 1908 and was the name of a fraternity in the film comedy The Adventures of Ford Fairlane (1990).

Twenty-five Trades High School pupils are valiantly rushing to return pie to its ancient honors. That at least one high school “fraternity” live up to the implications of its name was indicated Friday when the aforementioned youths, members of I Eta Pi, ate a pie at Broad and High streets as part of an initiation ceremony.

I feel like itโ€™s a missed opportunity if thereโ€™s not a sorority or fraternity named Iota Eta Pi.
