It’s Pi Day, Pi Day, gotta get down on Pi Day . . .
Even those of us who are not math nerds can celebrate March 14, also known as Pi Day.
Pi is a number unlike the ordinary numbers we see every day. It’s a small number, bigger than three but smaller than four. It’s a number that doesn’t have an end—if you started writing down pi, you would eventually run out of all the paper we have in the world and you still wouldn’t be able to write it all down.
We usually round pi to 3.14, and the digits that appear behind the 4 appear in a completely random, non-repeating order. It’s an irrational number, which means that it cannot be represented as a fraction.
Pi is also a number that invites puns, especially when it’s Pi Day. Maybe a non-pun joke or two sneaks in, if you’re lucky, but it’s mostly puns—and we collected twenty of them.
