If you watched the movie – “Harold & Kumar Escape from Guantanamo Bay”, Kumar is proposing his Lady love with a funky Math poem.

The poem was originally written by Dave Fienberg and titled – “The Square Root of 3″

Here it goes -

I’m sure that I will always be
A lonely number like root three

The three is all that’s good and right,
Why must my three keep out of sight
Beneath the vicious square root sign,
I wish instead I were a nine

For nine could thwart this evil trick,
with just some quick arithmetic

I know I’ll never see the sun, as 1.7321
Such is my reality, a sad irrationality

When hark! What is this I see,
Another square root of a three
As quietly co-waltzing by,
Together now we multiply
To form a number we prefer,
Rejoicing as an integer

We break free from our mortal bonds
With the wave of magic wands
Our square root signs become unglued

Your love for me has been renewed
… a preety mathematical way to propose someone!!
