32,767 is the maximum value for a signed 16-bit integer. Add one to it and it will overflow to -32,768.
I think he meant what is up with calling them angels? Is that some reference?
It's often said that during the middle ages, religious scholars debated frivolous questions such as how many angels could dance on the head of a pin. As explained by The Straight Dope, the original reference was to "angels on the point of a needle," and even that was a joke being made by Renaissance scholars. The closest real question debated was whether multiple angels could exist at the same physical location; if so, then infinitely many of them could dance on a single needle.

They actually look like some of the older XKCD comics. Like the pool of balls one. Maybe its supposed to represent the comic and the guy at the computer is Randall?
