Pi Day












(click the funny funny picture to make it bigger, clearer)

This special edition of Bizarro is brought to you by Pi.

Because today is March 14th (3/14), math nerds everywhere (like me) are celebrating Pi Day. Sometimes confused with Pie Day, which is on January 23rd, today's variety refers to the magical math number 3.1415blahblahblah, which is called "pi" by those of us in the know.

There are lots of things you can do with pi, like figure out something about a circle or time travel or something. It's been a while since I was in a math class, but I remember it was really useful.

For you history buffs, "pi" was first invented by the people who built Stonehenge, which is really just a bunch of them stuck together.

With the current economic crisis, you think they could save energy and reduce fuel consumption by combining Pi Day and Pie Day together to form PiandPie Day.

This may not be as silly as it sounds. Here's the reasoning; by dividing the circumference of each pie by the diameter, the result would mean an infinite number of pi's, hence creating unlimited sections of pie to be eaten. A simple but effective method for feeding the world.

I don't know why anyone hasn't tried this before.

Another comic demonstrating the low level humor we get when nothing funny comes to Piraro's mind and he just sits and lazily runs through puns in his head.
