Recently I read a joke from a book named It must be Beautiful: Great Equation of Modern Science (Farmelo, 2002).

The author wrote a joke:

A mathematician, a physicist, an engineer and a biologist are together and someone asks them what is the value of $\pi$.

The mathematician responds crisply that it is “equal to the circumference of a circle divided by its diameters”.

The physicist counters that is is “3.141593, give or take 0.000001”

The engineer says it is “about 3”.

And, the biologist asks back, “What is $\pi$?”

********************************************
Someone was not happy with this joke and asked me what is the value of $\pi$.
I said, “I am just a tutor. Please ask your lecturer.”
