I don’t have any connection to the U.K., nor do I care for many British things except for the following gems:
But I have to admit that I was on Royal Baby Watch yesterday…but probably for a very different reason than most of the celebrity-crazed Anglophiles glued to their Twitter feeds. My fascination with this newborn child has little to do with the royal family and much to do with his actual birthday.
You see, Kate Middleton finally gave birth to a baby boy yesterday. YESTERDAY.
July 22. Pi Approximation Day.
While many people worldwide celebrate Pi Day each year on March 14, there are several decimal-haters out there who prefer to celebrate on July 22 because the fraction approximation of pi is 22/7 (which is July 22 in the date/month format).
I’ve never had any interest in Britain’s royal family…until now. The baby’s birthdate of July 22 presents a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for the royal family. Prince William and Kate Middleton, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, still have not named the baby.
That’s why I’m proposing a name that honors his royal lineage as well as his birth on Pi Approximation Day.
The baby’s name shall be….
…wait for it….
That way he will forever be known as Sir Cumference.
Sir Cumference of Cambridge.
(One of these days, the world will begin to respect my genius.)
