Girl: Mom sewed one sparkly here and here. two sparklies here. three sparklies, five sparklies, eight sparklies, thirteen Frazz: Fibonacci sequins, of course. Girl: Math teachers shouldn't knit
Nope, she said “one sparkly here and here”, representing the two ones.
If the two previous ones were Iridium and Platinum and the next one was Mercury, then that could work…
@Randy BWell played sir – you’re absolutely correct…
I can’t wait for the “Annotated Compendium of Erudite Frazz Puns – Vol. 1” (coming soon to a bookstore near you)!
Miller, Cassatt/Brookins Pastis: you’re good, but you’re just not in the same league.
This is Golden. Thought it would Spiral out of control there for a moment… Thumbs up, Jef!
… and math geeks shouldn’t pun!
I like Frazz because it makes me think and learn (or relearn). I’d completely forgotten about fibonacci numbers.
As Jef once again shows his mastery of the Fegtoon art form.
@baslim the begger Thanks for the link. Spent a lot of time this morning learning geometry. Very interesting.
Trigonometry multiplication. A times of the sine.
Now that’s a Math Pun!!!
Hi, Nab! Haven’t seen you for a while—but my fault, as I’m not reading comments a lot, anymore.
As a retired middle school nerd/teacher I just plain love it! It would be my question of the day.
Thanks for the link! It will keep me in stitches! Best knitter I ever knew was a retired math teacher. How I miss her yarn shop! But she retired a second time :-(
21, 34, 55, 89, 144….
Well, I know how to read a comic. I don’t always know how to understand what’s being offered. Especially when it comes to math and knitting. Sparklies I understand.
The Fibonacci numbers technique is often used in knitting stripes. I learned this technique from reading about it in a knitter’s blog years ago. I’ve never used it (or heard of anyone else using it) for adding sequins, though.
I always enjoy the puns in this strip! It’s nice to be entertained and learn something at the same time.
Oh I like that one!
Facebook friend pointed this strip out to me, just added it to my GoComics page. Just my kind of humor!
This works well for pass line bets at craps too.
OMG – funniest one EVER!!!!
Thank you again for your divine proportions of humor
