Pi Day + 1

A late entry in the Pi Day sweepstakes: a Scott Hilburn cartoon from 2013:

Today’s the Ides of March and also Penis Festival in Japan, but neither of these fits the cartoon.

At the marriage counselor’s, Pi’s wife complains about his failings. First, the pun on irrational, as explained in my posting yesterday. Then go on and on ‘continue without end’, used for conversation that seems never to stop and for the decimal expansion of pi, which is infinite.
