No offense to Kohl's calculations, but is a 20 percent discount the right way to take advantage of Pi Day? We suppose 3.14 percent off wouldn't really count as a door buster. While mostly ignoring the #nationalschoolwalkout also taking place on March 14, marketers tried a variety of ways to tie themselves to a day about math—some more successfully than others.

This is a stupid question, Marie Callender. But, dang, we love a meringue. You are forgiven.
Would you rather eat 3.14 slices of pie or 3.14 whole pies? 🍋😋— Marie Callender's (@MarieCallenders) March 14, 2018

We, uh, marvel at the pun. But no one has this much time, guys.
Starburst, you are neither a pie nor does pi relate to your candy snacks whatsoever. We'll take a red, though.
This is cool. Sports and math coexist.
Pizza in Minneapolis? That's like bagels in Atlanta. We'll pass.
Does Pi Day have you thinking by the slice? Read about some of our top places for pizza in Minneapolis: https://t.co/zfJes6ABu0.

Also Whole Foods: "Pay no attention to our vendor revolt!"
Pi might be an irrational number, but celebrating National Pi(e) day with pie is a totally rational choice. Celebrate National Pi(e) day and enjoy $3.14 off any large bakery pie. While supplies last. https://t.co/ofTtUqpa6N #Pie #MakesMeWhole— Whole Foods Market (@WholeFoods) March 13, 2018
Nerds. Speaking of which ... why didn't Nerds tweet anything today?
We almost wanted to make fun of this because, silly Nascar, your tracks aren't circles. But it turns out you can caluclate the circumference of an oval with pi. We think. Forgive us, we are journalists.
Happy #PiDay! March 14th represented in numbers is 3.14, which are the first three numbers in the pi constant. Pi is a mathematical constant used to define the ratio of a circle's circumference to its diameter.

OK, we're seeing a trend shape up here: You're either going to see tweets from pizza brands, tech brands, candy brands and ... uh, the occasional hotel brand.
Whoever wrote this tweet is a liar.
Also a liar.
