General absurdity, non sequiturs and musings rendered in convenient JPEG format.
I don't think Russell's paradox is actually expressible in Venn diagrams as shown here. You'd need distinct representations for set-as-set and set-as-element.
Frankly, this was a mistake. This strip is not XKCD and it is not Abstruse Goose - such strips inevitably turn into panderfests or overly referential features in which the whole joke is that you get the joke. Still, this wasn't an explicit Russell's paradox reference.I mean, leaving aside the question of whether Venn diagrams can be represented by opaque pieces of paper held at chest length. This strip was more about the dialogue and I could've done that without the type of casual wannabe nerdery that pervades webcomics.
