From the Wikipedia article on pi, talking about fictional references to the number:

“The Simpsons – ‘Pi is exactly 3!’ was an announcement used by Professor Frink to gain the full attention of a hall full of scientists.”

Now which classifies me as a nerd more fully: the fact that I was reading an article about pi, or the fact that when I read the above quote for the first time, I read “Pi is exactly 3 factorial.”?

How embarrassing.
