Graph and Chart Humor (nerd alert!)

Sometimes you can express very funny things through a chart or a graph. I've seen a lot of funny graphs on the web and I'd like to get better at using Google's Charts API I've decided to recreate my favorites using it and post them here starting with this hilarious Venn Diagram.

Give it a try and post your own funny charts and graphs.

@Robert Gentel,
A funny meme on the web is to express rap lyrics through charts. Here is "Nuthin But A G Thang":

Not made with Google charts, but probably a propos:

That's from Ezra Klein's blog. He's got this recurrent feature, variously called "Your world in charts", chart of the day, chart interlude etc. They're a funny break from the political and economic stuff. And he does love them charts.

Since Klein's a total geek about charts and loves to blog about cooking in between the political stuff as well, this was a very funny post in context:

YOUR WORLD IN CHARTS: CHICKEN EDITION.

It's not that I wasn't already excited for my weekend excursion into Virginia for Korean Fried Chicken, but oh my dear lord, they have a chart:

It's like my perfect food.

Hey, if they can do it with hip-hop tracks, you can do it with eighties songs too, right?

This one's for The Smiths and Morrissey survivors
