since pi = 3.1415926 it is best eaten on March (3) the 14th of this year ('15) or in another hundred years at 9:26.

The pie is a cherry pie made from 'Montmorency' pie cherries from the northwestern lower peninsula of Michigan.  Tastes great too!

When I woke up this morning I was thrilled to look at the clock and see that it was 9:26.

Rand,

doubt!  We don't need no stinkin' doubt!


Erik,

you can always pretend it's still the 14th and go and get some pie.  Heck, everyday's a great pie day!

P.S.  did you notice the oven clock in the picture read 9:26?

When I posted that very early this morning I was referring to "this morning" as the morning of the 14th, as I had not been paying attention to the turning of the night! I do still need to get pie though. Didn't see the little clock either but I do now appreciate that detail!

Ok, I've waited, but no one has posted the old stale one yet, so I guess it's up to me ....

Pi R Square ... no wait--  Pi R Round, Cornbread R Square.


There, I feel better now that I got a round tuit.

Erik Doug, Don, Ray, et al.,

  The two pieces of cherry pie I had for lunch were delicious. What is the area of my cherry pie? Less than it was.

Ray,

  Unfortunately, it has. If it had been the blueberry pie that I also purchased, I'm quite sure my radius would have not changed. I'm now headed into the kitchen to confirm the hypiethesis, er, uh, hypothesis.  I feel confident that it works like the diagram below.

Bob-
Would that lead to a new term, pbh (pie-ameter at belly height)?
