Good morning crew,
In case you didn't notice, today is Pi Day. That is; March 14th, or 3/14. For those of you who got a C in math, like I did, 3.14 are the first 3 digits of Pi, or the ratio of a circle's circumference to its diameter.
Some people will make sure to eat a piece of pie, or have a pizza (pie) to celebrate Pi Day.
Not a terribly exciting holiday, but I have heard worse excuses to have a couple beers on a Wednesday.
That's probably a healthier alternative to pie anyway.
Laugh it up,
