Pi Day? More Like Hair Pie Day!


For the geekiest among us, today - March 14, that is, 3/14 - is Pi Day, a celebration of the mathematical formula that determines how to assign something a deceptive, delicious-sounding name that in reality possesses labyrinthine complexity and is really boring.

Say the dorks:

With the use of computers, Pi has been calculated to over 1 trillion digits past the decimal. Pi is an irrational number meaning it will continue infinitely without repeating. The symbol for pi was first used in 1706 by William Jones, but was popular after it was adopted by the Swiss mathematician Leonhard Euler in 1737.

According to Darren Aronofsky movies, it also drives people certifiably insane.

Because schools are where tax dollars go to die, there are a raft of Pi Day activities organized to quash the joy of learning for all the chillins' 'round the country.

Students will present pi projects such as research on the history of pi, pi poems, pi cartoons, pi plays, original pi songs or pi fashion. Then students will participate in a pi digit reciting project. Students get a card with a digit of pi on one side and a math problem on the other. The answer to the problem will tell the student the position of the digit they have. They should then stand in order to determine the mathematical approximation of pi.

We'd like to rename the day Hair Pie day, for no other reason than we can and that a Friday should not be dedicated to something that harkens back to the days of book learnin' (ages 5-8). Here to help us celebrate is the lovely...

What's your name?

Cheerleader: L -

[Cutting her off] Yeah, whatever.

What? You're shaved down there? Eh, what the hey, join in anyway.

NOTE: Well it IS officially also Steak and BJ Day. That'll have to do.

Is it real necessary to be specific that it is a trillion past the decimal. Dows that one place before the decimal screw up that estimate that much? Fucking geeks.

At least PETA and I agree on one thing. I wonder how they feel about hiding the salami?

fur trim = bad, trimmed fur = good.

When is bearded/beardless clam day ?

March 14th is also Steak & BJ day.

So you can celebrate an impossible math equation, or um, eat ny strip and get head.

Tough call.

It's a good day to be a man.

That cheerleader (Redskins?, I assume) kind of looks like what I hoped the chick who played Winnie Cooper would have turned out to be, but instead she turned into a mathematics Ph.D., or some such unproductive member of society.

-Yes, Cheers to the 14th of March. I don't know about your Pi Day. But I do know about Steak and Blow Job Day. This is one of those Holidays that you won't find a Hallmark card for. Let it be known:

All you losers are welcome.

Sucks to be my husband.

It's Lent, so no steak for him.

It's Lent, so no BJ for me.

THE IRISH said...
