Swoon

Mandelbrot gave me his autograph.
THE Mandelbrot.
Benoît Mandelbrot.
Father of fractals.
I have his signature.
It's here.
Right in front of me.
On my Ig Nobel program.
He signed it.
Mandelbrot.

Excuse me while I go scream joyous screams of joyness until I explode from pure happiness...

Don't scream too loud or you might degrade into fractional dimensionality.
