I'm pretty sure the idea for the above comic came from somewhere... but I can't find a reference to it. Perhaps a comment someone made somewhere? Anyways, I needed a half silly picture for a presentation I'm giving so quickly threw this together.

Is there a proof that there is no upper bound for the occurrences of every digit in pi (e.g. the digit 7 could only occur 4200 times)?

No, there is no proof. It is not known which of the digits in base 10 occur infinitely often, but it is obvious that at least two have to (otherwise Pi would be rational).

I once told it to my brother!

Aha! That must be where the punchline comes from :P

I heard this joke about eight to ten years ago, possibly from my boyfriend at the time, and I use it whenever somebody asks me that question (which, unfortunately, isn't very often.)
