Shouldn't it have been pronounced "Pie are Squared"? For that pronunciation, it should have been something like 2πr<sup>2</sup>

They cheated a bit. I seem to recall they had a sign in one place that said πr<sup>2</sup>, and another sign elsewhere that said "Pies Are Squared". Or maybe the π had a very small 's tacked on. I don't remember exactly how the name was communicated.
