MIT makes a maths joke

Greg Mankiw, a professor of economics at Harvard University, blogs (Sunday there in Cambridge, Massachusetts; Monday here in Cambridge, New Zealand) that:
MIT releases its undergraduate admission decisions at 1:59 pm today. (That is, at 3.14159).
Monitor: Tim Worstall

There should be a pi chart to go with this.

Well done. It did take me a moment to recognise the number.

What I'd like to see is a joke about Avogadro's number, the other constant I remember, but I suspect I'll be waiting a while.

It might involve guacamole.
