This is Pi Day #009
Yes, we have parents here too.
And this strip was not only published on Canada’s birthday, but on a BIG birthday, a milestone birthday. We’re one hundred and FIFTY today. Which I believe is the legal voting age of nations. Old. Out of that awkward pubescence of young countries, coming into our own in the world, moving out of our parents basement in a pan-Atlantic apologetic-brexit kind of way.
As this strip goes live (and since these blurbs and comics are now written weeks in advance, I’m assuming no catastrophic changes to that plan) I’ll be just finishing up a 15 kilometer Canada Day road race and then lining up for my free annual allocation of celebratory pancakes. (It’s like free health care but with more maple syrup.)
So, what I’m saying is, if you’re not from here, find someone who is and give them a classic Canadian Beaver Bump or buy them a Moose Knuckle Sandwich to show them that you care.
Happy Canada Day! And stay tuned: I’ve got big plans for the next 150…
Do you Like Web Comics?
Hey! Me too! What a coincidence.
This is Pi Day is an independent web comic about fatherhood, running, video games, science, art, independence, integrity, imagination and just generally ... family adventure. It is created, written, illustrated, and promoted by Brad Salomons from a quiet suburb of a remote Canadian city called Edmonton, Alberta.
Looking for more pi? We regularly celebrate at the great circle of math, science and technology culture. This is Pi Day has been calculated as the product of one geeky dad, one curious kid, and an irrational volume of corny dad jokes.
New full strips are published on Saturday mornings (and shorts, appearing randomly whenever I draw them). This is Pi Day will always be free to read on this site, but if you enjoy it please help me out by sharing the link on social media or supporting in other ways.
