ADVERTISE AT BOING BOING!
I can't find any further info on this Venn piagram, but surely it belongs in the annals of great math related food humor.
Update: It only took nine minutes for more context to arrive, courtesy of adamhst in the comments: this was created by Redditor HungryHungryHippy in celebration of the last Pi Day.
More info here
What troubles me most is where the baker got a Venn-compatable(TM) pie-dish.
A wild Snorlax appears.
There are at least three Pi days. 3-14, 6-28 (2pi) and November 10 —> 100 Pi day julian calendar.
Which part of the diagram will be the least likely to get me in trouble with my diet?
I’d rather do the trick with pasta, or pizza, if you want to keep the “pie” theme up, since the superimposed ingredients are tastier!
Why not do an “exclusive or” piagram? No mixed ingredients and the intersection is good for dieters.

4 and 20 blackbirds can make quite a mess.
This screams for a Venn-diagram shepherd’s pie…
I’d say this diagram ends up in the geeky AND delicious category!
If I can figure out a way to put together a Venn cheesecake, I’m in there…
That springform pan would be amazing.
I can imagine it being done post-cooking however, similar to the Venn diagram birthday cake my daughter and her cousin received on their first birthday (they’re 36 hours apart). Make two cheesecakes and then chop a bit out of one. Top as required.
As a side note, my favorite Venn diagram in recent years:
Did you see the Venn Cake? http://tothelabagain.blogspot.com/2011/10/rq-whats-difference-between-heaven-hell.html
Pie chart synergy!
It’s the pie plate that was used to bake the Visa/MasterCard logo.
Why do people insist on overfilling pies that should not be overfilled?
That crumble looks like the comb over on a middle-aged Porsche owner.
Some people just can’t not pile on, YOU KNOW?
A good how to for your next pi-day:
Cool. The only kind of diagram I ever make out of pie are pie charts which represent the amount of pie remaining in my pie dishes. They are surprisingly accurate though- and they get updated in real time, too.
TOTALLY did it first on my blog… complete with crappy MS Paint drawing on how to make the pan.
