NEWS ALERT: SUDOKU NOT ACTUALLY MATH

Apparently many in the United States still believe sudoku are math, when in fact, they are not. Sudoku are actually just puzzles using 9 objects. The objects can be ANYTHING. To illustrate this point, I have created a sudoku I call "Great Patriots." Click the image to see how it looks. This sudoku is actually solvable, so print it out and give it a try and stop acting so stupid! Our government does all the stupid we need around here.

[Late update: A very very annoying nerd wrote the following to me:

"Sudoku is actually math - just not math in the form that most people
know (ie, algebra - one *small* branch of what I consider math).Sudoku is a set of constraints and a search space in which there is a single solution that satisfies the constraints...As such, it is a constraint satisfaction problem. Numerous articles on various aspects of constraint satisfaction have been written in premier math journals."

I have contacted VP Dick Cheney, a personal friend and fellow nerd-hater, who has arranged illegal wiretaps on this nerd's telephone. He assured me she will be on her way to a secret nerd prison in north Africa within 48 hours, to be forced to listen to Eminem and Clay Aiken until deemed cool enough to return to American (or Canadian) society.]

I suspect I know this Candadian Nerd and if she says it is math, then it is so.
