Friday Sillyness

Like most humor, there is a grain of truth to this:

song chart memes
more graph humor and song chart memes

But wait, there’s more…

Found at a wonderful site called GraphJam, which is an excellent way to spend waste a couple of hours laughing heartily as it turns songs, movies, etc. into completely serious graphs and charts.

Just A Girl: You’ll love it for the music references (clicking on the graph also reveals the source (called a “cheat sheet”), complete with videos!), and Vicky TGAW: well, it’s graphs!

And to everyone, try your best not to waste too much time on the site at work, m’kay?

Happy Friday.


  1. Alright, having lived in both Missouri and Texas, I must say that A. Yes, that is definitely an accurate representation of Texas and B. That whole pink area is not necessarily true, unless of course it was moved over to Texas 😉

    I currently have a lot of time on my hands to waste, so I look forward to checking out this site. Thanks! 😀

  2. you californians need to get out more… but funny anyway

  3. I am sooo tempted to look right now but I have to go to work!

  4. I’m gonna take “loud and obnoxious” as passionate and honest- usually with hand gestures attached 🙂

  5. Ahaha. Yup, it’s graphs alright. Recently I’ve been playing with Google Charts. I think that will be how I make all future graphs for my blog. 🙂

  6. Wow. I love this site! Did you see the MC Escher one?

  7. I resent falling into the loud and obnoxious New Yorkers category…I live in Boston. I am NOTHING like a New Yorker.


    Aside from that, the graph is hilarious! And really, quite accurate 😉

  8. The only thing I’d add is a section over Colorado and Wyoming for ski vacations!
    Is it a sign that I’ve lived in CA for too long if I think there is more than a grain of truth to some parts of that map? 🙂

  9. I am surrounded by Old People, it’s terrifying!

    I’m getting used to the glasses, and I admit, they don’t look half-bad. 😀

  10. *giggle* I’m in the religious nut balls east coast teacher…at least you got to be loud and obnoxious 🙂

  11. Loud and obnoxious? Isn’t that rather limiting? Us New Yorkers can be quietly obnoxious as well. That’s when you really have to watch out.

  12. MMMMM …. Data …. I have always been fascinated by useless, but pretty, charts and graphs. I like the Tony Danza/Tiny Dancer one.

  13. I don’t get the whole map thing!? What’s wrong with it anyway? 😉

  14. I love the randomness of seeing which posts generate the most responses…

    Gabe – LOL. I hope you enjoyed the site!

    Charlotte – Well, SOME of us Californian’s do… 😉

    Just A Girl – Did you go? Did you enjoy?

    Sarah – Welcome to the site! I think that’s an admirable way to take it…

    TGAW – You are a graph-addict! Have you thought about counseling?

    TGAW – I did; hilarious!

    East coast Teacher – Uh, huh. Suuuuure.

    Hadley – Nope, it’s a sign you know your neighbors too well. 😉

    Wendy – Heh. Good!

    Cripkitty – Heh.

    Dingo – I dunno, every ex-New Yorker in LA is pretty loud. And they complain about the pizza. But we can’t seem to get them to go back…

    Homer-Dog – I figured you might like it too. You should start doing your own!

    *kb* – *grin*

  15. Hilarious… ok ,I am relatively young and lived in “old people” state with a lot of relatively young, trendy and extremely wealthy people, ok and a lot of old ppl. Now I am living in Religous nutball land (and I am Jewish). In its defense, I grew up in the area in a nice Jewish community, it is only recently that the nutballs have tried to take over!

  16. I would just like to note: both Alaska and Hawaii are missing. Other than that, this is some serious awesomeness.

  17. Jess – Welcome to the blog! Recently? I’m not so sure about that… 😉

    Rachel – Welcome to you too! Heh, I agree!
