      I think people who bought put options even last week would be relieved, as well. Also, not funny. FAIL.

      When FAIL says FAIL, you really succeed. It’s like multiplying two negatives.

      I don’t get it. What’s “Geometry Masters”? (And please forgive me for the punctuation outside the quote marks.)

      David, jokes about math ability do not work on lawyers. Many of us chose law due to our math ability.

      @mwasseresq: Ironically, when I was interviewing for lawyer jobs, I tried to sell my math and computer skills as a qualification. Both math and law require logical thinking, working from one point to another, etc. The reaction I got from lawyers interviewing me was, “I can’t do math.” I guess that’s why I’m a librarian.

      To clear any confusion: This incredible drawing is a guy (maybe me) thinking that “GM” stands for Geometry Masters–some math entity that this guy loves. To this guy’s relief, his beloved organization is safe. [“Geometry Masters” is made up….I hope.]

      The only thing I can imagine nerdier than this would be for someone to remark that the humor is diluted because people might have bought GM put options. Comment FAIL.

      Pointing out comment fail fail = David Mills FTW.
