Comic: Checked Mate

This is Pi Day #015

Kid: Can you tell me an airplane joke?
Dad: I would, but it would probably be over your head.

If you don’t get it, then you’ve never travelled with kid… a kid to whom the companionship of her parents against the vast uncertainty of the universe is nothing in comparison to the security granted by a stuffed toy.

She did this once… forgot her toy… somewhere. If only she’d JUST checked it. Either way, it was darn near the end of the world, y’know.

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.
