Here, n = 5 and m = 4. As the picture clearly illustrates, one of the pigeonholes has more than one pigeons! [Wikipedia]

Welcome to Speak Geek

What's this going to be? Hopefully, a frequently updated site of comic depictions of terms frequently used in computer science. It all started with the "fun and interesting" terms I was introduced to in network security, such as "random oracle", "elf in a box", or "malicious adversary". We used to draw relatively funny pictures of these terms in our class notes, and I thought I could share them, and come up with new ones over time.
