This seating pattern is designed to provide maximum discomfort to all.
Apparently this one needs a legend. Ok, it's a parody of those airline seat maps and associated icons used to assign seating spurred by the continuing saga of orthodox Jewish males refusing to sit next to a woman. This seating arrangement avoids female contact for those gents, while maximizing the overall misery for all fliers.
Hope my comment on WEIT got the legend right. Great cartoon, as usual.
