# What famous meme am I referencing with a polynomial?

What legendary meme am I referencing (twice!) with this large and strange polynomial?

$$5507x^4-302885x^3+1420806x^2-2224828x+1101400=0$$

Buckleyour seatbelts, it’s kind of crazy- I sincerely hope you and your handheld calculators are up to the task, but I don't blame you if you flip your stuff. Also, don’t feel bad if you haven’t yet caught any of the five total references in this question and you’re feeling kind of lost- I’ll buy you a Caddy if you’ll cheer up. :)

• I do hope y’all like my question. This isn’t a part of the puzzle, to be clear. Just feel free to let me know what you liked/didn’t, what worked/didn’t, that sort of thing. I’m very open to constructive criticism. Commented Sep 23, 2022 at 23:40

This polynomial references the meme

First we

factor the polynomial:
5507 (x - 50) (x - 2)^2 (x - 1)

The

roots are 1, 2, 2, 50 which when converted to Roman Numerals are I II II L which resembles the figures in the four panels of the original comic.

Furthermore

the 5507, if we turn our "handheld calculators" upside down, looks like the word LOSS.
