    that one’s excellent ! XD

  2. Kairee says:

    Nicely done!

  3. Sapphirous says:

    That was fantastic. It reminded me of overhearing people on the phone. Next time someone says “Where? Seriously?” I’ll jump to the thought of their grandmother.

  4. Taz says:

    Fantastic! :]

  5. Sakimori says:

    Pure genius.

  6. Squawkfox says:

    I need another coffee.

  7. Kaoru says:

    Wow you’ve really outdone yourself with this one, I love it! :D

  8. Paper tiger says:

    This is perfect! I love these ones; they may take longer to read, but they’re always hilarious. Well done!

  9. daniella says:

    i’ve been reading these every single day for months and months and i can tell you that this is your finest achievement.

  10. dahcheet says:

    Will you marry me? You’re wit and humor are absolutely sexy.

    I LOVE these diagrams.

  11. Brent says:

    Yes, brilliant.

  12. Roberto Leibman says:

    Damn you… you made me look up liger, which resulted in a 1 hour follow-the-link session at wikipedia.
    Thanks, I’m now much better informed about feline hybrids.

  13. Jeff Brokaw says:

    Man, these posts are hard! ;-)

    Kudos to you … very clever.

  14. Lesley says:

    These diagrams are my favorite of all your posts!

  15. Dan says:

    Loved it!

    Keep up the good work.

  16. eigenvector says:

    Magnificent! But the coffee must have brewed longer than normal!

    Epic. Truely epic.

  19. Marissa says:

    You’re a genius!

    These diagrams are my favorites also. They’re always the most satisfying, and I always laugh out loud at them. The seven deadly sins one remains very high on my list. I think this one tops it, though.

  21. Count Scary says:

    what does “prodical” mean?
    Past tense of predictable?

    (Yes, I do know what was meant, and I AM being a jackass!)

    All teasing aside, this one rocks!

  23. Jessy says:

    This is awesome!

  24. Richard says:

    Simply awesome. Unlike Robert I won’t look up liger, but I’m sure if I come across one I’ll think of you. For a second.

  25. Gary M says:

    I don’t know who you are, but I know you are a genius. Your diagrams are one of the things I look forward too every day. Whatever you do IRL, I bet you do outstandingly well.

  26. Elle says:


    (This was way too awesome for words)

  27. Mike says:

    I was surprised 21 was all you could get out of seven points. I had to count the lines to make sure. Now you can do the reverse .. BA …. Or how about some triples or quads.

  28. Ela says:

    Smart, smart, smart

    and very funny!

    Congrats, brilliant!

  29. Chad says:

    I love the 5×7’s!

    Haha, awesome. These diagrams are always the best!

  34. Laura says:

    Your site is a permanent fixture on my blog. Honestly, it took me a moment, but funny once I figured it out. If your drawings had been around in 10th grade, I might have passed geometry the first time around. A+++

  35. John says:

    I may just have to get this one on a T-shirt.

  36. Persnickety says:

    This is my favorite. So many good chuckles hidden in there.

  37. Elliott says:

    Your K_7 graph makes me reminisce about my graph theory class.

    Jessica, I’ve not been a fan for very long (but I am loyal) so this was the first 5×7 I’ve seen. I love them! Could you do more please?
    People need to be educated about such important things as ligers. Or get their cult movie viewing up to date and see the brilliant Napoleon Dynamite.

  42. Maarten says:

    Awesome! Really smart!

    Like it a lot!

  43. Nightfalcon says:

    Brilliant, as always…

    another one for CG: your place of conception

  44. Dave says:

    How exciting it must be to create something that works so completely – well done!

  46. Diwant Vaidya says:

    Much appreciated! It is now a poster in my office.

  47. PKM says:

    Oh my god… best “web” strip to date. About half of the 21 combinations made me laugh out loud- if there’s one thing a geek loves it’s mathematical wordplay.

  48. whoa!!! pure genius….

  49. Adam says:

    You are amazing. This is amazing.
    It’s just… wow.

  51. Jeremy says:

    I don’t understand why this is funny, brilliant, or genius…

    Am I missing something? I pick 2 questions, let’s say A. Who? B. What? and then I refer to the corresponding line segment AB, which is 3 am call for bail right?

    Maybe it’s because I don’t care for random humor…

  52. Wow, really good…

  54. August says:

    @Jeremy: I still don’t get it, too. Someone eager to explain?

  55. Elizabeth says:

    What’s not to get? One possible answer to the question “Who? What?” as represented by AB: your phone rings at 3 AM. It’s your friend Tim. He’s talking really fast about being in what sounds like “jail” and needing what sounds like “bail money”. Your first response is, “this is WHO? Tim? You need WHAT? Bail money?”

    Therefore, AB = Who? What? = Tim needs bail money at 3 AM!

    P.S. I got a C minus in H.S. Geometry. I SO could have used this help back then :)

  56. Ela says:

    OK, for Jeremy and August,

    for each point like A, B, C, D, we have a question.. Not the figure it self it’s what matters the most but the lines, AB, AC, BC, BD etc.

    Take line CG for example: Grandma’s nipple ring.

    If I’d found out my grandma has a ring pierced in her nipple this is exactly what I’d say or think:

    Where????? (which is C)
    Seriously???? (which is G)


    What’s so brilliant is that almost every line is witty and funny and very true (Check out line CD – C Where? + D When?, CD = It’s a date!).

    Hope that solves it :)

    Complicated, funny, and accurate in every respect.

  94. Oh yea oh no i like cheese. But it has to be a special type of cheese that you can only find in the seven wonders of the modern world if you know what i mean. Yea you know what i mean. that’s sexy. I mean come on do you really think i would leave a comment without saying something about cheese.
