Happy Pi Day! Ooops! Not you Germany … or Holland, or Greece, or ….!

March 14, 2021

THE FUNNY SIDE OF PI DAY

In Australia, we don’t get too carried away with 14 March aka Pi Day aka 3.14.21 because, unlike Americans,  we do not write the date as 3/14/21. We prefer 14/3/21.

No problem.

Meanwhile, the Germans, the Dutch, and other European countries do not call π ‘Pi’, they call it ‘P’ or ‘Pee’ because ‘i’ is pronounced ‘ee’, for instance, in German. 

So Happy π Day English speakers and now, for a laugh, look at some of our Pi or Pee jokes through the eyes of, say, a German.

Pi Day 2

That’s because of the beer.

Pi-Day

One whole day dedicated to pee.

It’s epic!

Pi Day 3

Mathematicians in love .., awwww!

So cute or they’re pissed.

……………………………………..Pi Day 4

OK. ‘I 8 sum pi’ but adding the ‘delicious makes this weird for a German. D’Oh!

pi Day 5

Very expensive bottle of pee.

Pi day 6

Mmmm! Pecan pee.

Pi Day 8

Rabbit Pee must be a problem.

Pi Day 10

Dessert wine, maybe?

Pi Day 9

That’s, like, every day after a night out on the ‘piss’ as we so delicately call it in Australia.

pi Day 11

You too can have tasty pee. I don’t know how and frankly, I don’t want to know.
