Happy Pie Day!

Once again, it’s Pie Day, a day to enjoy a delicious slice of your favorite pie: apple pie, key lime pie, pizza pie, or maybe cherry pie with a damn fine cup of coffee. Whatever’s your favorite, you’ll… Excuse me? You say it’s Pi Day? As in 3.14 etcetera, and not the yummy dessert? In that case, get me a knife and fork and I will demonstrate the concept of the radius.

    Pi(e) r squared.

      Very impressive! Well executed. But I believe “Pie are round, bread are squared”, as the old joke goes.

    Hey, this is a square Pi Pie, so HOW can I show my prowess in explaining a radius with my trusty knife? WHAT? You mean that wasn’t an invitation to a contest? DRAT.

      If you can figure that out, I will give you a prize of some sort.

    This reminds me of happy days gone by – me and the kittehs, one bacterial unit, my food was their food!

    The hover is the only equation I need to remember from school.

    I do have a frozen pie! Runs to freezer. Preheats oven.

    It’s maple season here in Québec now so I offer this maple sugar pie for you consideration on Pi Day

      Looks fabulous! I haven’t had maple sugar pie, but I love pecan pie.

      It’s maple season here too (Western MA).

      I have to go sleep that picture off or get coffee. Yummy.

    I love white whiskers on black kitties. Makes no sense from an evolutionary standpoint.

    Except that it’s cute as all get out.

    • Smartypants March 14, 2016 / 5:19 pm

      They’ve evolved to be endearing, so we’ll pamper them and give them stuff…genius! 😀

      • Faye March 14, 2016 / 5:44 pm

        My tuxie has all white whiskers and I love each whisker.
