Another day, another controversy for the Wildrose Alliance Party of Alberta.

Yesterday, Calgary candidate Russ Kuykendall was sent packing after it emerged he had written a blog post criticizing a gay pride event that was held in a Catholic church hall.

Today, Drumheller-Stettler candidate Rick Strankman is apologizing after a poster advertising an "Old Fashioned Pie Auction" encouraged people to "Bring Your Wife's Pie."

Strankman tweeted an apology for the poster, blaming it on volunteers.

But that hasn't stopped it from drawing accusations of sexism and mockery on social media.

It also helped generate the hashtag #BakeofFire, which only produced more hilarious tweets.

Here are some more tweets posted under the #BakeofFire hashtag:
