Facemath: Many celebs maketh one

Barring the rather excellent Numb3rs drama series and, er, New Orleans band Mutemath, the Facemath Tumblr is probably the best pop culture use of mathematics we have seen so far. Facemath adds up a bunch of celebs (random objects like facial hair or bunny ears also make an appearance) to emerge with one celeb, the sum of the total. Every math sum here is solved in a way that’s so oddly comprehensible, it’s geeky without alienating the non-geeks.
