One is derivative of another

In this case, this comic is derivative of two earlier ones, plus the more famous one from that other geeky, math/science/computer comic website. (You know which one.) I used a version of this when Leslie Nielsen passed away. And that time, I'd forgotten that I'd done an earlier version based on a Phil Collins song.

The "sudo" referenced here is the "sudo" computer command, which allows a user to run something with the privileges of another person (usu the "superuser"), even if they couldn't make the computer "do" it on their own.

As for the math, there is a tweet with a calendar problem for today from @GWOMaths about the Pseudo-Rhombicuboctahedron. If it was today's tweet, how did I know about it? Well, you might want to take a look at the answer tomorrow.

A Rhombicuboctahedron is an Archimedean solid with 26 faces: 18 squares and 8 equilateral triangles. A Pseudo-Rhombicuboctahedron is a similar object, but one section of it (top or bottom) is rotated by 45 degrees (1/8 of a full-rotations) or by some other odd multiple of 45. Being offset like this reduces some of the properties of the regular Rhombicuboctahedron.

The twisting is reminscent of the antiprism.
