I didn't get the "math is math" joke in *Incredibles 2* until my kids reached the fifth grade and needed help with their math homework.

Math was my weakest subject in school, but I'm certain that Mr. Incredible is correct: somehow teachers changed math in such a way that makes it harder to, say, multiply fractions and other operations that should be as simplified as possible.

In the above webcomic by Chris Hallbeck of Maximumble, we can only sympathize with this demon who finds that, after a long slumber in the underworld, math is no longer as he was taught as a lad.
