American Pi

I know it's my second post in a row with a video, but I just couldn't resist this one for Pi Day! Here's a musical tribute to the mathematical formula, sung to the tune of Don McLean's "American Pie."

Not only is today Pi Day, it's also Einstein's birthday, the eve of the "Ides of March" and just 3 days from St. Patrick's Day!!

It really should be a radical (radii) day! I would be diametrically opposed to anything "sane" today, so how about a nonsense verse.


There was a young man from Ulm
Who calculated many a sum
He worked with mass
Amazing his class
By discovering how energies hum!

I am dedicating this Limerick to another fellow blogger TOSK - The Other Steven King - who writes Limericks and Fantasy - maybe the only sane things to do :)

Have a calculating day!!


  1. It's not calculated-- it's irrational!

  2. sSimply splendid! i will share...

  3. I love pi--lemon meringue. cherry with crumbs, chocolate meringue, pecan with Einstein, I mean ice cream.

    I loved the limerick. Great post.
