The existence of Laws implies some kind of law enforcement, right?

The Eggoids were some of my earliest characters. Every now and again, I dust them off and bring them back. They make for easy personifications of functions and symbols.

I don't think we'll see it all clearly, even in hindsight!

While you're remembering your barbecues, remember why you're having those barbecues.

Next year, we can hope, it'll be like the "Before Times".

My mantra for this entire election season: I'm not going there. Pity that it's the same with all school activities as well.

When this started, I couldn't imagine that it would last to the end of the school year -- not, at least, in places where there's school in June.

But last, it has. And a lot of things got skipped. Some in the "aw shucks" category, and others a "minor big deal" because there would have been moments that just won't come around again. Maybe some of them can be made up, but for many activities, it'll seem a consolation prize at best.

I do hope this ends soon. And I hope it's something we don't have to endure again.

As long as I'm on the subject: Shoutout to my alma mater, Xaverian High School. This year marks the first co-ed graduation class in the school's history. And the girls in the senior class did make history but winning many championships in their first three years (in their first year, even). It's a shame they didn't get a chance to sweep, but I'm sure they are all moving on to even bigger and better things.

English teachers and their word puzzles!

Speaking of puzzle, I heard this one on the radio. And I thought it would be the perfect revenge call for all the mathematical trivia calls.

Of course, if you could get "coyote" and "roadrunner", that really would've been something!

Be the change!

Overthought this one. Originally, it was a dy/dx and a Constant. I knew I didn't want just a minus sign.

And it should've been more graduation-themed, but what are you going to do?

This one was supposed to be on Friday, but Friday got away from me. As did Saturday. Today's going to be busy, too, but I squeezed in some time.

Nightingale

For a math comic, it's a little strange that this isn't my first reference to the Crimean War.

Florence Nightingale was born May 12, 1820, two hundred years ago (yesterday). I didn't think I was going to do a comic, but a comment I made online about a Great Women of Mathematics tweet was well received, so I figured that I'd share it with the comic audience.

You miss a lot of my silliness when you're not following me on Twitter, @mrburkemath.

Git along l'il data.

Yes, I'm old. No, I'm not that old. I'm old enough to remember variety shows on TV, and old enough to have older siblings who were old enough to remember things like this. And then there's my parents and grandparents.

Looks like breakfast is late.

For that matter, this comic was delayed because, while I was working on it, we wound up with a family conference call because my kids are actually not in isolation with us.

Sharon could've used "butts" or "keisters" or those who are unaware, as everyone knows, a "floating point" is one of those things you see in the sky, but it's actually in your eye. And that's an error.

It's in there somewhere.

And that sounds like something Ken would say ... why did I just waste that? Oh, well. Wait a year, and re-use it. It's not like many people read the after-text anyway. Probably fewer than 2.0000013 X 10^1.

Assuming each brother gets one bride. If brothers can have zero or multiple brides, it's a different question.

It's not a movie that I've seen. Or, if I recall correctly, a TV show that I watched.

The entry was dated the fifth, but I worked on the comic on the sixth, so that the date in the panel.

They're not ready for Prime Time.
