Great hovering kookaburras! Pi Day is upon us, and me with my best pi coat at the cleaner’s.
In honor of the blessed event, I like to point people back to the Pi-Ku poetry we made up on this site back in 2007. There still are some great poems in there. My favorite is Chris K’s

Naturally, haikus also put me in mind of the fit of pangram haikus that we did a while back.
You can see where this is headed. And so I thought to myself… hmmm. Do you suppose we could make a hai-ku-pi-pan-gram*? How about this:

There we go. Haiku syllables. Pi letter count. Alphabetic pangrammitude. And the topic is the Queen herself. It won’t win any prizes, but still.
You must do better! Use this.
* Coincidentally, Haikupipangram is also the name of the Minister of Weights and Measures in King Kamehameha’s first administration.

I was so proud. Then I realized I got the number of syllables wrong. Never mind.
You go girl! A for effort! Three marks for Gryffindor House.
Re-using parts of one of my previous Rambles Pi Day entries, I invoked a tremulous Archimedes and his deity to come up with this:
Ago, o’ Jove, a
quaky Siracusan (be
amazed) flex’d pi’s worth
Now that’s what I’m talking about!
