|"Hey Steve? Did you see on Facebook?*|
Today is Pi Day! Steve? Steeeeve?"
(*or whatever they had in 1592. Talking?)
Yes. Completely. After all, everyone loves Pi Day and besides what other observance is celebrated by both eating and posting Instagrams of pie? Could there be a better meaningless observance?
|Tiramisu Tuesday? No? Well what've you got?|
|Pfft...no wonder everybody murdered|
him. Well, that and the tyranny...
Well, as it happens, today is the Ides of March, which at least marks an actual thing that happened. It's the anniversary of the day Julius Caesar got stabbed to death by like sixty of his closest friends and colleagues in history's easiest-to-see-coming assassination. Unfortunately, the day doesn't so much lend itself to something delicious like pie. I mean, it was a pretty brutal shanking, so I'm not really sure how we'd mark the occasion. I suppose you could eat a caesar salad but falling as it does the day after Pi Day that seems like a pretty serious letdown.
Oh well, it looks like the Idea of March are destined to be nestled anonymously between Pi Day's delicious pies and St. Patrick's Day's socially acceptable public drunkenness and Irish stereotyping. I guess we'll just have to settle for celebrating by being the super-pedantic weirdo who keeps asking people to guess what today is just so we can tell them.
