repost from Sociological Images

If you can't read the sticky note, it says "My Mom has a PhD in math"

Whenever I point these things out, I get "oh! well not yooou". You missed the fucking point. (If you don't see what's wrong with that response ... I just don't have the patience to explain it to you...)

    Are you the one who posted the sticky note? Is the comic strip supposed to tie into your message?
