You have to love a good math joke :)

Just as a little FYI since Fermat isn’t very well known:

He was a French mathematician.

This comic refers to Fermat’s Last Theorem.

Look it up on wikipedia if you want more details.

It’s probably also a reference to Canon in D by Pachelbel. Which is damn annoying.

For whole n > 2:

There is no solution to

x^n + y^n = z^n

There’s no fermata anywhere in that score! Gotta put it in somewhere… and then send 22/7 particles to my face.

Then one day …

The Elliptic Swan Lake tops all charts…
