Pi Day Jokes to Make Anyone Laugh

Like my favourite middle-school teacher always said: The problem with math puns is that calculus jokes are derivative, trig jokes are too graphic, algebra jokes are formulaic, and arithmetic jokes are just basic. (But I guess the occasional statistics joke is an outlier.) If you are cringing right now, you know how my entire eighth grade math class felt every day. However, it is important to know a few good, short jokes for every occasion—even if only the smarty pants in the room will get them. In honour of March 14, here are some Pi Day jokes guaranteed to multiply your enjoyment on this nerdiest of holidays.
