What a gas this strip is…
Should he have said "pizza pie?
Unfortunately, we only have 23 hours to enjoy pies today.
Just don’t see how you can call dog farts pie.
That’s PYEW day… and yeah, it’s a gag!
The cartoon got off to a fine start, then turned into a fart joke. Jef, I expected better of you.
Caulfield babbles day after day about things everybody already knows
Is that dog a poot-l?
Funniest, true, dog fart story – stop me if I’ve told it before: My buddy lost his dog in the bush, and can’t find him before dark. The next day, him and a friend finally find the dog chewing on a rotten deer carcass. On the ride home, the dog farts, and the smell is so bad that before a word can be spoken, his friend sticks his head out the window and vomits.
Pie are round.
Oh stop with the “everybody knows that” babble.
Is anyone but Americans writing dates this ricidulously: 3-14-2021?
There are plenty of folks outside your little corner of the world – not even 1 in 20 will get that joke without the explanation given in the comic. And without then making fun of Americans being reliably on time just one day per month when day and month counter are identical. Or crushing interplanetary probes into Mars ’cause non-SI-measures. Or fucking up recipies ’cause “ounces”.
If the height of the pizza is “a,” and the radius of the pizza is “z,” then the volume of the pizza is pi(z*z)a.
Pie day = good. Concluding panel = meh
Remember… Pi are NOT square… Pi are ROUND! BROWNIES are square!!
if you pronounce it correctly as the Greek letter, it sounds like pee
Personally, I’m craving a strawberry-rhubarb pie . . .
We don’t have a pi day in the U.K. We have to be different – today is 14/03/2021.
Which is the funniest kind of gag to elementary school boys.
Pi Day is a Reality gag. It’s a number that can’t be fully defined while providing a reliable estimate close enough to work.
Ostentatious braininess? Check.
Laborious set-up? Of course.
People so smart they can read minds and predict the future? Yep.
Over-analysis of something simple? Oh, yeah.
Meta business? Ho-hum . . .
Obnoxious kid with a look of precious self-satisfaction? Yes.
Gross-out punchline? No surprise.
Boy, if this one had given us contempt for golf and football and a poke at fat people, it would have checked all the boxes.
Some angry commenter using the above format to whine? Coming soon.
Thank you so so much, Jef, for yet another bodily function smell joke. Nothing we look forward to more or find funnier (uh… NOT)
This looks better in the proper font, but you can imagine a mirror where the “=” sign is and get 3.14 = PI.Ɛ
Would anyone who has witnessed a cheese pizza giving gas to a dog please raise your hand … , …
… I didn’t think so.
And Mallet didn’t even have to pull one of the dog’s clause.
The math team cheer: sine, sine, cosine sine, three point one four one five nine!
I tried cutting up the panels and rearranging them. Sometimes it can make it funny.
Fart “jokes” the lowest and most childish of such attempts at humor.
It’s a gas gag
Yup—gotta love Pi Day. Personally, I lean more towards the apple or chocolate variety, but I’ll take what I can get …
Gas what just happened?
