Foxtrot Math (SuDORKu)

I love the Foxtrot cartoons about math. Here's one I came across a couple of years ago and just rediscovered while cleaning out my math files.
I'm honestly not sure if it really works as I haven't tried solving it. I think it would be a great idea for a math lesson though, maybe an introduction lesson? You could either have the kids solve the puzzle, or you could give them some sudoku blocks and have them come up with their own math expressions to replace the given numbers. You could require them to touch on certain topics such as fraction addition, square/cube roots, order of operations, etc.
