Funny Graphs with Political Messages

GraphJam is in the same vein as FailBlog and PunditKitchen, but with graphs. But sometimes, delightfully, the political will creep over into the GraphJam sphere.

Here is an example:

Songs Chart Memes
more music charts

I like the above graph because it accurately portrays one of the emotions I experience during the inauguration. I got the feeling a lot of people in the crowd attended to witness that it actually happened. As if, by our collective observance, we could protect President Obama. Once he was sworn in, a quiet charge went through the crowd. I felt a lot of people were relieved not to have witnessed something horrific.

This next example is less political, but no less interesting. In my research on plagiarism in Academia, a lot of TAs and Professors expressed verbally what is shown graphically below:

I am not sure how true this is overall, but I like having this in-case I need a visual-aid to explain how many educators see their students’ writing.

Ok, last great example. Sometimes I wish my research classes, in presenting how to use graphs effectively, would use images from GraphJam. Talk about clearly descriptive statistics:

Anyhoo, great fun!

Inspirational Quote:

“GraphJam is the unholy love child of bored office workers, music and pop culture.”
