10: Pi Equals
Title text: My most famous drawing, and one of the first I did for the site
There are two possible references here. One is from the book Contact by Carl Sagan, where the existence of God was shown in the last chapter to be encoded in the digits of pi. The other is an old joke of a fortune cookie with a fortune that reads "Help! I'm trapped in a fortune cookie factory!". This joke is also referenced in 327: Exploits of a Mom's title text, where Mrs. Roberts daughter's name is "Help I'm trapped in a driver's license factory".

- The book version of this comic (in xkcd: volume 0) has different title text: "I've put rescue instructions in e. You'll need the cheat codes for your universe, which I hid in the square root of two."
