Well, in true nerd fashion, I have been acutely aware that today is Pi Day all day (acute-ly…. Get it?). Working in a school where we had a pie-eating contest and multiple Math projects, I spent my day wishing I had pie, chocolate with an oreo cookie crust preferably, and thinking about my days of math as a student.
I had a series of fantastic math teachers (with maybe a gap year or two), but I wouldn’t exaaaaactly say any of them were particularly funny or into math puns. If I were a math teacher, I would totally incorporate as many jokes into my math pedagogy as possible (you’re welcome, Katie).
Now, I haven’t taken a math class since freshman year of college… so 2001. And many of the math jokes I looked up for your viewing pleasure today were way over my head (clearly Calculus I and II were unnecessary). But I didn’t find some that tickled my funny bone.
Here are some samples:
Q: Why is a math book always unhappy?
A: Because it always has lots of problems.
Q: What do you call friends who love math?
Really, any excuse to reference pirates. Mwahahaha….
If you’re into math, check out these nerdy math jokes!
Now on to actual pie. I like pie. I wouldn’t say I love it. I find pie uber heavy, and really I find that the crust can make or break the pie. Graham cracker crust? Yes. Here are some gourmet pies for your drooling pleasure.
(I just want to say that I am proud of myself for understanding what that Tshirt means… thanks Mrs. Flenniken!)
