Happy Halloween 

If you hold an advanced degree in hyperbolic topology (like, say, this guy), you might enjoy this old Simpsons Halloween rerun. Not only that, the fake counterexample to Fermat's Last Theorem received mention in this math paper.


The writers mentioned the fake counterexample in the DVD commentary for this episode. They call it "Fur-matt's Last Theorem".

FYI, there was a two page article in Science News on math in the simpsons.
