Pi day jokes

Some old pi related jokes that I’ve seen a bazillion times:


Mathematician: Pi r squared
Baker: No! Pie are round, cake are square!


In Alaska, where it gets very cold, pi is only 3.00.
As you know, everything shrinks in the cold.
They call it Eskimo pi.


A mathematician, a physicist, and an engineer are all given identical
rubber balls and told to find the volume. They are given anything they
want to measure it, and have all the time they need.

The mathematician
pulls out a measuring tape and records the circumference. He then
divides by two times pi to get the radius, cubes that, multiplies by pi
again, and then multiplies by four-thirds and thereby calculates the
volume.

The physicist gets a bucket of water, places 1.00000 gallons of
water in the bucket, drops in the ball, and measures the displacement
to six significant figures.

And the engineer? He writes down the serial
number of the ball, and looks it up.


Question: What do you get if you divide the circumference of a jack-o-lantern by its diameter?
Answer: Pumpkin Pi!


Question: What do you get when you take the moon and divide its circumference by its diameter?
Answer: Pi in the sky.



Question: What do you get if you divide the circumference of a bowl of ice cream by its diameter?
Answer: Pi a’la mode.

  1. I have used the Pi ARE Squared joke to help my classes remember the formula, so when they are asked HOW much PIE they want it would be AREA! (Not the crust)

  11. Howdy! I could have sworn I’ve been to this web site before but after going through a few of the posts I realized it’s new to me.
    Nonetheless, I’m certainly happy I discovered it and I’ll be bookmarking
    it and checking back often!

  15. You really make it appear really easy along
    with your presentation however I in finding this matter to be really something that I
    feel I’d by no means understand. It sort of feels too complex
    and very broad for me. I’m taking a look forward for your next
    submit, I will try to get the cling of it!

  16. Either shape can easily be used for either confection. I’ve seen round cakes and square pies. :mrgreen:

    :arrow: I think we’ve all seen round cakes.
