Comic: Kart Konundrum

This is Pi Day #003

We somehow scored a first round release Nintendo Switch (not an endorsement… just a thing.) The best part about that has been Nintendo’s history of (a) family friendly titles and (b) franchise games with histories dating back to as far as I can remember being a gamer. I’ve been super-stoked to show the girl some of my classic favs in their updated format.

So of course she cleans the floor with me. Seriously. Not me going easy on her, either. She has developed some solid skills in the last couple years… and my aging reflexes are not helping. So we played some Mario Kart 8 and I found myself going from dad trying to get her excited about a game I’d loved in versions past… to dad trying to explain why I wasn’t as epic as I seemed to imply.

Embarrassing… but only a little bit.

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.
