Pie are round, Cornbread are square-Redneck Joke

As any fan of sci fi knows pi is the best way to cause a super intelligent machine to fall into an endless logic loop and give you time to unplug it. Pi can be taken out as far as you want, the Pi Song is Pi taken out to the 30 decimal places-(3.141592653589793238462643383279) It’s the kind of thing that makes you proud to be an America.

Since my own less than stellar math prowess is limited to Algebra and reading a few books on higher math like Godel, Escher, Bach: An Eternal Golden Braid and Mathematical Treks: From Surreal Numbers to Magic Circles. These books were amazing, but ultimately baffling. I’m a man of the calculator generation.
