Is there really any other way to celebrate Pi Day?
If you're a high school science teacher trying to make class more relatable through the magic of free pie, March 14 is Christmas, Hanukkah, your birthday and Thanksgiving all rolled up into one beautiful lattice'd ball.
Pi Day, aptly named because March 14 equals 3.14, which corresponds to the first three digits of pi, stands second in the hierarchy of nerd-themed yearly dates, right behind May 4 and right above whatever day people claim is the day in that picture from "Back to the Future."
Every year, Pi Day comes around, and every year, the masses lose their collective sh*t over it.
This year, we decided to join in on the fun and hold Elite Daily's very first pie eating contest (which you can watch on our Facebook page) in honor of this holy, holy, holy number.
For real, I almost died. When I sank my head into the first bite I accidentally snorted up what felt like five pounds of cream. It was like I was diabetes' answer to Tony Montana on the verge of OD-ing via banana pudding.
Anyway, HERE IS THE OFFICIAL, LEGIT, 100 PERCENT UNQUESTIONABLE RANKING OF PIE EATERS AT ELITE DAILY!
1. Sepp "The Garbage Disposal" Dasbach
2. Eitan "Golden Teeth Hole" Levine
3. John "'Murica" Haltiwanger
4. Olivia "Pi Gal" Loving
Happy Pi Day, everyone!
Any suggestions about what we should do on May 4?
