That's rather good.Is this one too old for inclusion? (Only two people in Reginald's have ever got it, but then it doesn't benefit from being spoken rather than written. Particularly by a defrocked mathematician three sheets to the wind on gin and orange):There are 10 kinds of people in the world. Those who understand binary and those who don't.
Well, it's always a pleasure to get a mention on here, Tony, but I can't think why you were crediting me with this - unless my pesky doppelganger has been up to his tricks again.I did once attempt to draw a cartoon (effective execution rather frustrated by my dismal draughtsmanship) depicting the eminent mathematician's imagined daughters (or aunts, I suppose, would have been temporally appropriate) as a pair of flapper girls dancing energetically for the amusement of their friends (dancing on a carpet with a design like your photograph here) at some wild Jazz Age party. Caption: The Mandelbrots, and their set.
Oh, what a silly blogger I am; the joke reached me via Ben Goldacre, not you. But why not regard this credit for something you didn't do as a small compensation for all the credits you never got for things that you did do?Can you not get a friend to draw your excellent cartoon? It would make a good post in OMF, credited of course.
