I kind of like Cublicles.

They sound like a tasty snack.

I know I've seen a bunch of these somewhere else, but memory fails me. Anyway, related.

(Number of graphs)(glibness)(seen the joke before)=Suck quotient.

A careful perusal shows that suck quotient is rising over time.

I like Cublicles so much that it hurt me a little inside to correct it.

C'mon haters, this one is at least pretty funny.

Don't make me generate a snappy graph showing the number of haterz per thread.

* Urge to create pie chart . . . rising.

I thought this was pretty neat.

Also, cublicles.

Not to be confused with Neuticles.

Wasn't Cublicles the Greek playwright who wrote that play about Generation XXVI?


/okay, fine, Greeks didn't use Roman numerals. I will defend this punchline like a mama tiger defending her cub!

This seems a lot like Culturegraph.

That feels so Lore.

Okay, so I clicked on the "cublicles" link posted by Kabanos. It was adorable, so I decided to search Flickr for more "cub" photos. I then discovered my new favorite picture. Good heavens, dear ones, I LOL'd heartily.

Do four-dimensional office drones work in tessicles, do you think?

No, they get their own offices, unless they're neuter the company.

I really, really like chart/graph humor, but most of the ones I've seen seem to be rehashing the same joke over and over again. Using a chart to graph binary data was funny the first time, but just recasting using different source material doesn't do anything for me.

The great chefs out on Tau Ceti Prime
Have a 4D cuisine that's sublime
They serve lightly herbed snails
With Klein bottles of ale
In a dish they call "winkles in thyme"

I'd like these better if they weren't so inaccurate. First of all, Queen Latifah is totally hot; are they saying she isn't because she's overweight? (If so, then this graph is just sad (the creator's got a weight problem, but NO FAT CHICKS! AMIRITE?)

Also, Sir Mixalot LOVES an itty-bitty-waist with a round thing in your face. Have they not actually heard the song before??

They need a fact-checker.

No graph-agglomeration is complete without this analytical insight into contemporary cultural memes.
