Friday Funny 9: Cool/Nerdy Graphs

>> Friday, November 07, 2008

So Graph Jam just rocks. I totally geek out at the fun graphs and charts that they have. I collected 30 of my favorite for you today. I hope they make you chortle.

First, here are 13 graphs that visually illustrate song lyrics:

And here are 17 graphs that are just random and delicious:

So true!


This proves I like cartoons...

Us nerds know this it true!

I dunno, I always drowned in the river...

Pharmie is going to LOVE this one! (not a David Caruso fan)

So there are few of us going to a 6.23 kilometer run tomorrow. Yes, a “6.23 K” run. It’s for a fundraiser for school district 623. My costume will consist of a pile of newspaper that I will crinkle up...

...and stuff inside this costume so I will look like a plump, round, ripe tomato:

It should get some fun reactions! I’ll see if I can get Borsch to take a bunch of photos at the race. If you haven’t voted for me yet, please go here and cast your vote! Thanks! Happy Friday!

those graphs are amazing. I am also a graph person, so had a good laugh!

Good luck with the voting!

Shannon 5:43 AM, November 07, 2008  

Curious....who long did that take you to post?

You made my Friday funny Steve....:)

teacherwoman 6:27 AM, November 07, 2008  

Can't wait to see the results of your 6.23K run.... especially the photos and the report. Good luck!

ncrunner12 6:35 AM, November 07, 2008  

Funny graphs, I too am interested in seeing the 6.23K, hope you can get some good pictures for that.

FLYERS26 7:27 AM, November 07, 2008  

man those where some funny graphs.
careful running as a tomato, one wrong step and SPLAT!

Glaven Q. Heisenberg 7:53 AM, November 07, 2008  

Wait. So if the spectators don't care for your performance in that costume, what will they throw at you? Your tomato brethren????


O, the toma-nity!

Good luck on the run. You already have my vote.

Lisa Slow-n-Steady 8:03 AM, November 07, 2008  

The graphs are great. They made me laugh out loud. Especially the laser pointer one. I can relate to that. LOL

Jess 8:22 AM, November 07, 2008  

Those are all funny! Have fun as a tomato on your run this weekend!

sRod 8:59 AM, November 07, 2008  

Ahhh, now Friday has started.

Carolina John 9:09 AM, November 07, 2008  

That's hysterical, Steve. Good call!

Borsch 9:23 AM, November 07, 2008  

You know you are killing in the voting!

Amy Jurrens, RKC 9:43 AM, November 07, 2008  

I'm totally putting the "Cowbell" graph on my blog. That is my favorite SNL skit of all time. Plus, everyone calls my kettlebells "cowbells." It's become a kettlebell insider's joke.

I voted and I think you're a shoe in! Good luck this weekend. Don't splat!!

21stCenturyMom 9:53 AM, November 07, 2008  

You are the best! It is precisely because you put so much effort into the Friday funnies that I did, in fact, vote for you. Well done, sir - well done!

ps - I now have that George Michaels song stuck in my head - crap!

tfh 10:38 AM, November 07, 2008  

These are so funny! Thanks for the Friday laugh and have fun tomato racing.

Sarah 11:32 AM, November 07, 2008

I love peanut butter Jelly time

Trishie 12:49 PM, November 07, 2008

Smithposts 1:08 PM, November 07, 2008  

Oh Steve! I hope you don't sweat, you are going to be covered in newsprint!

The Happy Runner 2:16 PM, November 07, 2008  

I think I just laughed my headache away. Thanks!

The Tri Runner 2:34 PM, November 07, 2008  

I always try to forge the river, and I always drowned.

Great Stuff!

kerri 2:35 PM, November 07, 2008  

Holy crap!!! Where in the heck did you find all that stuff. Lots of laughs.

Michele 7:05 PM, November 07, 2008  

OMG, I was laughing so hard my hubby had to know what website to go to!!!!

Michelle J 7:40 PM, November 07, 2008  

HAHA great friday post!!! Love the graphs so much!!

Now seriously i though your outfit for the run looked like granny underware!!! The large red panty looking thing???

WHat is wrong with me??

Have a great run tomorrow and post those photos!!

Marci 8:16 PM, November 07, 2008  

LOL. You are the male equivalent to Marcy!

Marci 8:16 PM, November 07, 2008  

ps that's a great compliment, BTW!

Runner Susan 9:11 PM, November 07, 2008  

Did this take you all day? Seriously, very funny. You know what I've learned about blogging in a decimated economy, clusterfucked war, and the worst-run Republican campaign in history? That if you call the current President of the United States "Asshole of the Universe" you're gonna get a lot of hate mail. No kidding. I thought that was just general common knowledge About George by now. Who knew?

AKA Alice 9:40 PM, November 07, 2008  


Na, Hey, Goodbye and What People Call Me are my faves... I needed that :-))

Have a great time tomorrow.

CoachLiz 10:41 PM, November 07, 2008  

Love the Curing a Fever/ Cowbell graph.

Hey wait, I thought that Shaun kid who does all the snowboarding was called the Flying Tomato!!!

Julianne 1:23 AM, November 08, 2008  

Did you make all those graphs?!?! Man, you must have aced your way through Geometry! ;-)

skoshi 8:52 AM, November 08, 2008  

Ummmm...I didn't get the peanut butter one, but the rest had me rolling.

Aren't you going to sound a little crinkly with all that newspaper in there? How about those little packing peanuts--so you can shake it up a little? this a tomato fundraiser?

Mommymeepa 9:39 AM, November 08, 2008  

OMG, those graphs are freakin' hilarious. Thanks for making me laugh. Can't wait to see your tomato pics. Have a great weekend.

Ms. V. 11:19 AM, November 08, 2008  

I LOVE the Jeffrey Dahmer one.


IronJenny 11:30 AM, November 10, 2008  

The head and shoulders one had me laughing out loud for real. And then I got all ashamed for laughing so hard at that one.
Shame on me!!!

Two Left Feet 3:48 PM, November 10, 2008

The Laminator 9:17 PM, November 11, 2008

Those graphs are incredible.
Thanks for the laughs!

RooBabs 2:19 PM, November 12, 2008  

Oh how I love me a Friday Funny from Steve (even if it's on a Wednesday). Love all the graphs!

Sarah 5:43 PM, November 12, 2008  

oh. my. god. Those graphs were the BEST THING EVER, ESPECIALLY FOR A GRAPH NERD LIKE ME!!!

i looooooooooooved it!

I hate to admit that one of the ones I cracked up the most at was the one about MS Word and fixing the damn auto formatting crap.

I also loved the child/parent IQ...and the Nickelback one (b/c I hate them, esp)...and the OREGON TRAIL ONE...oh okay I loved them all, what the hell.

THANKS, STEVE! I def laughed...
