Our little brother (and doctor) Rob already had a pretty damn funny PowerPoint on infectious diseases. But based on this request, we put together this gag comic strip to punch it up. Call this the first three-Gerber-brother collaboration (though as usual, Ken did the drawing and Rob handled the medical diagnosis).
This one was a live request: Ken’s students know he’s an artist and wanted to see one of his drawings on their final. So prolific mathematician Paul Erdős found himself in caricature form in problem 5 of the Calculus II exam. (Here’s a picture of the man in real life.)
