Sorry if this counts as explaining the joke, but it took me a while to work through as I saw no reference to volume in the joke so my brain immediately ruled that out.

The standard formula is V=PiR²h (Volume=π[3.14] times Radius squared times height. In this case, Z is the radius, so it can stand in for R. And since the law of Multiplicative Identity states that it does not matter what order you multiply things in until you do something other than multiply, so since Z² is just Z times Z we can instead express it as ZZ. A is similarly known to be Height, we can substitute A for H and express the equation as PIZZA (Pi times Z times Z times A).

So, it's PIZ²A

Or just PIZZA, if the squared symbol doesn't work

Keirgo27th Jun 2018, 3:46 AMAs someone who is phenomenally slow when it comes to maths and all things maths related, I thank you for explaining the joke.

JennyDracos28th Jun 2018, 11:20 AMWell, it looks like at least one member of the cast didn't get the joke, either.

Probably why they didn't like the rules for the contest, either.

Guest27th Jun 2018, 1:09 PMWhat nathan400 said is that ZZ = R. Making it a radius of Z would turn this into....PIRA, or something.

Best to revert that change.

Now I get that joke in DnD Aangvanced. Gotta say... Amethyst kind of looks mad. I can't remember her player's actual name.

TheStevest29th Jun 2018, 6:00 AMMeanwhile Comicfury-only readers will read the right Aangvanced strip next year (?) and (most likely) forget about this linked joke.
