The unknown sender, who had apparently been trying to text his sister, was more than willing to share the pie recipe, which the Imgur user didn’t hesitate to post online. He says that he won the “wrong number” jackpot after all, how many people have as successful an interaction by text message?

What’s the strangest text froma stranger you’ve ever received? Let us know in the comments!


Imgur userthehosssauce received a photo of two pies unexpectedly, from a stranger.


The stranger apologized, and said that he was trying to text his sister.

But the Imgur user was more interested in the piethan the fact that someone he had never met before contacted him.


He asked for the recipe, and in no time, the stranger sent it to him!


He shared it online, too: “That is 1- 9″ Keebler Graham cracker ready made pie crust. 2 cans of carnation sweetened condensed milk. 5 lemons, 2 limes, 4 large eggs. Melt 1/4 stick of butter and baste the pie shell. Bake it at convection setting 325 for 15 minutes. Zest the lemons and the limes. The zest will be mixed with the meringue later. Seperate your room temperature egg white and yokes. Be careful not to get any yolk in with the whites.”


“Juice the lemons and the limes. Use some of their pulp with meringue. Mix egg yolks with condensed milk. Add lemon and lime juice. Add mix to pie shell and bake at 325 for twenty minutes. Whip egg whites on high speed by themselves, without sugar until they start to peak. Add granular sugar and zest until they stand on their own and to taste. Use convection setting @450 until meringue browns nicely. Let cool for 1 hour then transfer to your fridge for another 2 hours. Enjoy.”
