Randall Munroe, the creator of xkcd, calls it, “a webcomic of romance, sarcasm, math, and language.”
As a failed math major — math requires an attention span — I love the mathematical humor of xkcd. It’s more than egghead humor though. xkcd is a frequently beautiful look at the nature of life, love, and dreams.
Food is not a frequent topic in xkcd, but Friday’s mathematical homage to bacon gives me an excuse to mention an excellent strip. Strip. Bacon. Heh. Check out xkcd. It’s funnier than my puns. Promise.
