Comic Transcript:

HOMER: So, Ferret, do you have any kids?

FERRET: Yeah, we have one litter: four kits. In fact, their birthday is coming up.

HOMER: What did you get them?

FERRET: We got little Ada a signed first edition of Donald Knuth's "Art of Computer Programming" Volumes 1-3. We named her for Ada Lovelace, of course. Nikola is getting a build-it-yourself X-ray machine kit.

HOMER: He's named for Nikola Tesla, I presume?

FERRET: And for Marie, we got her a lab safety kit, including a lead-lined apron. She's named for Marie Curie. You know how that whole "Lab Safety" thing worked out for her! And finally, for little Stephen, a collection of writing guides and a word processor.

HOMER: He's named for Stephen Hawking?

FERRET: No, for Stephen King. Someone in this family needs to make a living!

Honoring some of my heroes in this comic was a lot of fun. Even more than usual, I encourage everyone to mouse over everything and if you're interested, click for more.
