This Webcomic Wins Pi Day


Oh hey, it’s my birthday! What a special day for me! Except all of my thunder has been stolen by that dastardly Pi Day. Look, up until 2009, when the House of Representatives passed a non-binding resolution recognizing National Pi Day, had you ever even heard of Pi Day? Would you have thought to celebrate an irrational number that never ends? With pie? I hate you so much, Pi Day. But I like this comic.

From Safely Endangered, the webcomic manages to touch on the whole Pi/pie play on words everyone finds so delightful on this day when they should be offering me birthday cake, not pies, and gets in another nod to Pi’s infinite status. Ah, the joys of pondering the ratio of the circumference of a circle to its diameter! Oh, the puns and possibilities! I wish I had been born on the Ides of March.
