Pi-a-Day: Saint Pat-cakes

This is Pi Day #070.a – March 17

We’re a wee bit Irish.

On March 17th, a few days after Pi Day, I get to embrace a fractional bit of my ancestry and celebrate my grandmother’s family emigrating from the Emerald Isle about a hundred years ago. Sadly, apart from eating things green and playing a bit of Irish fiddle, that’s about all the heritage I’m able to pass along to the kid.

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.
