@Brian: Brian, Brian, B-ry! I simply had no idea where the comic came from. Your manners could use some work — hence the “disemvowelling” of your comment, but thanks for the heads-up!

pyth only applies if it’s a right angled triangle. factually incorrect cartoon ;-)

Hmm… correct me if I’m wrong, but isn’t she holding a right-triangle?

I’m just trying to figure out what “sshl” is with vowels… oh. What a jrk.

that actually is used in the movie “Wizard of Oz”, when the scarecrow gets his brains, he spouts that phrase. It’s part of the social commentary. All along he has been the brains of the group, then he gets his papers, and says something really great sounding, but really wrong.

Does it really matter, I mean it’s only a cartoon, i maybe a kid but, I’m smater enough to know that normal people, don’t stree themselves over fake cartoons.
