Spiked Math Comic - Quick Graph Theory Joke - The Petersen Giraffe

The above is Evan Wantland's (professor at Warren Wilson College) super cool graphical representation of the Petersen graph ("giraph") -- Source. Also, credit for the motivation for the joke goes to Tirian from the xkcd forums.

Very cool one. But I'd say it could also be an extruded pentachoron, therefore not being cubic but 4-dimensional :D

Oh my gosh I love it.

Also, I'm lu6cifer, the guy who provided the graph on the xkcd forums.

Sweet, thanks for resurrecting that xkcd thread since I too was curious about it! :D

I came up with the idea independently many years ago--15?--but had no idea what to do with it.

funny funny :) Thanks! love your humor and your efforts!
