Overweight mathematician admits sqrt(-1) 2^3 Σ Π

Well done. Math joke of the week.
Groan. Took me a few seconds, though.
Presumably sqrt(-1) is "I". Can someone help me from there?
Possibly "I too greater than threesome...something" but can't make sense of it.
Square root of minus one is i
2 to the power of 3 is 8
Sum ie all of
Very clever Alex. 5 stars right after Dubstar with Not So Manic Now
Aha! Thanks Jessa.
I got the clever bit (i) but didn't recognise the other symbols (other than sum) I though the "to the power of" was a "greater than" which had fallen over rather than a supersrcript. I also didn't recognise Pi as Pi; I though it was Mu.
Other than that I was all over it!
Took me a while as well!
the sum of [all the]
Congratulations to Smart Alex and apologies if I have spoilt this for anyone.
(Edited to add: congrats also to J Vine for beating me to it!)
Now be honest, did you think of this or just retell it?!!
A quick google search...
I had come across something similar many moons ago, I think along the lines of Maths teacher eats Σ Π but honestly believed I'd invented the Sqrt(-1) 2^3 bit. Obviously should have thought to do an internet search before posting. Oh well...
Well, I'd not seen it before, and had a chuckle. I may be wrong, but I think that's the point of this site.
Doesn't stop it from being clever and funny - and also congratulations on managing to discuss pies without mentioning the dreaded *r*c P*ckl*s.
You just mentioned him.
Incidentally, he's an anagram of "Spice Licker", fwiw.
Not a criticism, just wondering. I think it is clever which is why I asked, and only Googled it because I didn't get it as quickly as others!
"You just mentioned him."
Yes, but I think I got away with it.
This is about the tenth time you have said I am Wayland. No matter how any times you say it, it won't come true. Also, Lens Cap is two words.
