Ahoy, Matey! Math Jokes Ho!

A ditloid is a puzzle in which a fact must be discerned from the numbers and abbreviated letters in the clue. For example, 7 D in a W is a ditloid for “7 Days in a Week,” and 20 V on a D is a ditloid for “20 Vertices on a Dodecahedron.”

Here’s a ditloid in honor of International Talk Like a Pirate Day:

15 M on a D M C

If you have trouble, here’s a hint.

Also for International Talk Like a Pirate Day, some mathy pirate jokes.

Teacher: What’s the circumference of a circle?
Pirate: 2π Arrr!

How much did the pirate pay to have his ears pierced?
A buccaneer!

What has eight legs and eight eyes?
Eight pirates!

What grade did the pirate get in math class?
High C’s!

When Apple finally enters the pirate arena… the iPatch.
