Coffee, tea, or Hubig's?

When planes are en route to Louis Armstrong International Airport, stewardesses should ask their passengers what they prefer, "Coffee, tea, or Hubig's?"

"What's Hubig's?" out-of-towners will ask.

"It's something you won't be able to get enough of after we land.  Hubig's Pies are sold on just about every street corner, but the little bakery can't keep up with demand.  They are good.  They are very, very, extra-ordinarily good.  Coffee?  Tea?  ... No, I didn't think so."

Stewardesses should also offer them to passengers leaving the fair city of New Orleans.  While plenty of people stock up on Hubig's Pies when they leave city limits, by the time they are over Slidell, that stash has a big dent in it.  A Hubig's for the trip would be just the kind of lagniappe New Orleans is famous for.
