    Right now, Demitri Martin is on Comedy Central doing his little comedy graphs, and I can say with confidence that yours are far more insightful and far, far more intelligent. And much more fun. :D

    Thank you for creating this blog!

  12. SMfC says:

    holy shit! honestly, that is amazing. where does this come from and when are you gonna make it big?

  13. Sojourner says:

    This one is great!

    Would you consider making this one available as a t-shirt?

  14. DJ Segfault says:

    <AOL> Me too! </AOL>
    I would definitely buy this one on a t-shirt if it came in my size.

  15. Noop says:

    I love that you actually took the trouble to construct an actual heptagon :)

    I hope you don’t mind that I am a little bit in love with you.

  18. Chaucer's Bitch says:

    Dude, that is fantastic. I am suddenly reminded of religion classes in my 12 years of Catholic education, which were not fantastic.

  19. lastovka says:

    Astonishing! Genius!
    I send the url address to my math teacher so she would be finally able to explain the pupils how mathematics can be used in everyday life ;)

    Almost brilliant. You need to replace the A-G letter labels with meaningful letters. Use the first letter of each sin (with Greed replaced by Avarice, for uniqueness). Then it will be possible look at WE = Cattiness and see imediately that it refers to Wrath and Envy.

  23. Robert says:

    This is my favorite one so far. And I second axegrinder’s suggestion for filling in the 2-simplices in the graph with something.

  24. Chris says:

    You’ve outdone yourself. I really enjoy this blog, and this entry takes the cake.

  25. Jillian says:

    I bow to your genius.

  33. Jessica Hagy says:

    Yay, friendly Blog people!
    Hugs to everyone who showers.

    Okay then, this one is now a shirt.

    Note to t-shirt wanters: I know the site I’ve got now isn’t the best ever, and a new store is in the works. Thanks for all the feedback.

    Hold tight, and you shall be rewarded!

  34. Terri Ann says:

    Possibly the best yet! For the record reddit .

  35. Anup says:

    This is freaking brilliant..

    Good to go !!!


  36. kinkaid_0 says:

    I can certainly see the humourous nature of this, but welfare a deadly sin? for someone with a religious bent there is an obvious lack of compassion. wait this makes perfect sense.

  37. GC (God's Child) says:

    amazing–this one’s brilliant. I don’t care if somebody else already said that. You ought to know.

  38. joeythehobo says:

    I’d love a t-shirt of this one as well. And look:
    You made it into other blogland.

    When this drawing showed up on GetReligion, a friend of mine liked it so much she forwarded it to me.

    Totally hilarious; great job!

    LOVE. IT. :]

  43. titan says:

    awesome post! the shirt’s totally mine.

  44. jimmycity says:

    I’m so happy that so many people are discovering you and praising you for your work. You are so special, so unique, and I’ve just used the word “so” four times in two sentences. Five, if you count that last one.

    We love you, Jess.

  45. DM says:

    Can you label all the faces of the 6-simplex in the same way? Actually, I think even 2-skeleton will be impressive.

    Great job, BTW.

    Welfare is a sin? How American. No doubt poverty is a lifestyle too.

    hehehe! ‘fat men in speedos’…Only thing funnier is seeing someone get hit in the balls by accident.

  60. Lesley says:

    Bulemia is a disease, not a sin. The rest of them I can float with, but that one’s a bit offensive.

  61. Lewis says:

    I’d like a tee, too!

  62. Lewis says:

    I realise now I haven’t left my email address – lewis.jones@landg.com

    Get over yourself. Really. This is some hilarious stuff.

    Will you please be my best friend? You are beyond cool.

    Yes, I too, would like to buy it as a shirt. If not the basis for a cult I would like to join!

  67. Valerie says:

    I want to chime in about the “Welfare” tag too, speaking as someone whose family was actually on welfare for a couple of years. Not much envy involved, trust me.

    “Wishing You Were on Welfare,” on the other hand, would make sense.

    Odd. I don’t see hummers on here at all.

    I see this one gets the oooo-aahh — but frankly they are very well done–are you a symbolic logic junky? Be very careful — you are bordering on metaphysics — and then you might have to take things seriously — yikes! The Q-card thing — as presentation — should inspire gobs of people to beleive in their ability to be novel!!! Not that my opinion matters — but I give it two shaggys to the Hagy and one shizzel to the top ‘o the Hizzel!!!!! Oh no I’m getting way too excited and I think I may have just —– bookmarked!!

    Amazing. Thanks for the laugh!

  71. Smartypants says:

    The only change I would suggest is to bulimia.

    Gluttony+Wrath= Vegan. Don’t know about the rest of you, but I’ve never met a vegan who wasn’t kinda cranky.

    Wrath and Sloth … that’s “Atom bomb”, isn’t it?


  73. Young Freud says:

    Shouldn’t Lust + Sloth = Masturbation?

    I mean, finding a sex partner, you know, takes effort, which is totally the opposite of Sloth.

    Congrats on making the Digg front page. At least 2151 people have seen your comic. Too bad the post didn’t link to your blog.

    A brilliant depiction of K7, the complete graph on seven vertices. The only thing I would have done differently was giving the vertices the first letters of the corresponding deadly sins, thus spelling out PEWSLAG.

    This is brilliant. Kind of a die for Dungeons & Dragons of the Marqui de Sade.

  102. Douglas Bienert says:

    Love the diagram. I laughed out loud (at the coffee shop) when I read “edible undies” and “fat men in Speedos” along with their corresponding letters. If only the class I took in Moral Theology used such real life examples it might have been more interesting!

    This is great, and I’m going to use this in an invited lecture I’ll be giving next month on the seven — or eight — deadly sins (a story there, but I’ll skip it here). I’d like to point out two things.

    First, strictly speaking, the excellent diagram and combinations you’ve worked out are not really an algebra but a combinatoric — doubtless you knew that, but also knew that most people would relate to a better known term, no?

    Second, these kinds of combinatorics have a long pedigree in moral philosophy and theology — the issue is whether vices (which is what the seven deadly sins are — deadly because productive of others) can combine or interfere with, even prevent each other. Again, a great diagram which I’ll use in classes where we discuss the vices (and the virtues)
