Monday Humor: 33 Uncomfortably True Charts About Everyday Life

Tyler Durden's picture


If one picture can paint a thousand words, the following 33 images, from Danish writer/artist duo Mikael Wulff and Anders Morgenthaler, should shed serious light on the everyday struggles, irritations, and insights of their fellow Westerners.


Via DeMilked,

The duo publishes their satirical creations every day on Wumo, their webcomic and newspaper cartoon strip (formerly known as Wulffmorgenthaler). Their cartoon career started in a comic strip competition in 2001. Their victory gave them the opportunity to be published in Politiken, a national Danish newspaper, for one month. Things continued looking up when their strip became very popular and became a regular feature in several blogs and newspapers in Scandinavia and Germany. Now their comic strip is a regular in The New York Times.

Take a look at this collection of graphs – are they true for you as well?

Yep. This is the slowest site I visit with all of the ads. If they had premium ad free I would pay.

Only the one's that work on the ObummerCare Death Panels.

Just think, Stalin, Mao, or Hitler will have nothing on those guys as they consign millions of boomers to an early grave because the healthcare dollars just won't be there to pay for grannies hip replacement or grandpa's bypass.

Actuaries are people who are good with numbers but don't have the personality to be an accountant or lack the bullshit skills to be an economist.

I enjoyed the graph about the content of women's magazines.  All I know is what I have read on the cover while standing in line at the checkout.  If I were in charge I would try recycling the entire content every couple years and see if anybody notices.

Yeah, these reminded me of Mrs. Cog's collection of the real meaning of corporate logos, which has been mentioned before on Zero Hedge.

I met my wife online while drinking a Mocha Toka Java waiting for my grilled chicken after a weightlifting session I took after I had a panic attack in a Ikea store trying to find my way out and didn't have the strength to kick open the emergency exit, they airlifted me out of the parking lot but the chopper crashed into a pitbull breeders back yard and the fucking pitbulls chewed my sandals off and I'm stuck at home reading womens magazines and eating spoiled bananas through a straw.

Refreshingly off-beat.  I can dance to it.  I give it an 8.

"What helicopters do in movies"  That was funny, though I can't say I LOL'ed (not without lying, anyway).

My favourite is the "smoke detector."

LOL. It is funny because that is true.

Actually, the helicopter graphic was the one that was not accurate for me. I would have put it at:

Track criminals 1%
help the hero escape 2%
Blow up 97%

So far, I would put the "smoke detector" at 100% of the time due to bad cooking. Never a fire, but lots of burned food!

had a pitbull/black lab mix try to Fing eat me at a customers house the other day.  I had a laptop bag for defense and I didn't know whether to guard the crotch or the face/neck until he left his feet.  Fortunately,  he looked me in the eye and put on the brakes and slid into me with his mouth closed.  Damndest thing i ever saw.  I thought he was going to eat me.  The homeowner said he is just a little nervous around strangers and he will calm down in a minute.  I said lady,  either the dog gets locked up or I am outta here.  She put the dog back outside.  Crazy world.  Plenty of excitement going into peoples houses.  The things you see,,, i tell ya I could right a book.

Expected probability that, in a first attempt, you will read a bilingual label in your native language: 50%

Demonstrated and proven statistical odds that, despite natural probability, you will not read the bilingual label in your native language in a first attempt: 98%

I noticed Islam had the lowest bar in the Chart measuring "Religious Extremism"...RIGHT!

Like we see the Christians who actually practice their faith and live by the words of Jesus killing gays, stoning women for adultery, cutting off the hands of thieves, cutting off the clitoris of wives and daughters, honor killings of wives and daughters, endless Jihad against Christians, Jews and Western Civilization.  The list goes on and no but the Left is delusional and insists that Islam is a peaceful and tolerant religion.

 It must have been a clueless and ignorant Liberal who created the chart, or a member of CAIR.

A few years back the old lady and I were sitting side by side reading magazines. I had either the Economist or National Review and was trying to concentrate on the concept that was being presented. Granted, I read slow, but for every page I would turn my wife would turn 20 to 30. She is also a noisy page-turner. I look over and I swear more than half of her pages were full-page ads.

Whoever thinks men and women are the same, take them to a magazine display at a store. There are clearly men's and women's magazines and they are drastically different.
