Johnny baked a single \'pī\ for his friends, and when his friends asked for more \'pī\ so that each friend could have one \'pī\ , he responded with

"I gave you two \'pīs\ already!"

His friends were confused, since Johnny had obviously only given them one \'pī\ ...

How do you get two \'pīs\ out of one \'pī\?

(If you are wondering what the slashes are and symbols are, they indicate pronunciation, probably a part of the puzzle...)

He gave them

one pie, which has a total angle of $2\large\pi$.

    $\begingroup$ @f'': Yeah, but it seems like OP isn't using IPA - they're using one of those horrible amalgamations that dictionaries use to avoid IPA. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ ugh it wouldn't be /'paɪs/ or \'pīs\ either. $\endgroup$ Commented May 2, 2016 at 22:18
  • $\begingroup$ Sorry, couldn't quite make out the pronunciation stuff perfectly. Thank you guys. $\endgroup$ Commented May 2, 2016 at 23:29
