The author writes:

If you ask me why I decided to replace every line of dialogue in this strip with scientific formulae and diagrams... I don't know. But I did try to pick ones relevant to the original dialogue... though sometimes it takes punny thinking to figure out said relevance.

Inspired by No. 440: Garffiti.

All equations and diagrams lifted from Wikipedia.
