I happened to be at MIT on pi day for a debate tournament, and they were serving pie. I got to the banquet a little late and the girl mentioned they were out. I got upset because pi was supposed to be non-terminating. She said I was being irrational and that at least this pie couldn't be expressed as a fraction. Then I mentioned that you could have segments of pie which are definitely fractions, and she pointed out that there was no pie left so I'd be dividing by zero.
Then she made fun of me for being a Comparative Literature Major.
