Some years ago the number game 'sudoku' swept Britain as a craze and is currently printed in newspapers like crosswords are. The joke is the idea of a game show similar to sudoku but less comprehensible.

That's a number!

That is a distressingly accurate representation of logical atomism, yeah.

It's a 4 way tie between eel-leven, "that is a number!", bertrand russell, and the pre-computer version.
