Venn Would Be Good 4 You?
Given my surname, I suppose it was predestined that I’d like Venn diagrams. But nowadays, it seems that everyone likes them, especially the humorous kind. You can find a whole whack of them at www.thisinindexed.com, or just do a Google search for funny Venn diagrams.
Earlier this spring, Reader’s Digest featured 6 Questionable Relationships Stuffed Into Venn Diagrams. I particularly enjoyed this one:
The lottery is a tax on the mathematically challenged.
Though perhaps not as succinct, W. V. O. Quine was more eloquent in describing the phenomenon:
We can applaud the state lottery as a public subsidy of intelligence, for it yields public income that is calculated to lighten the tax burden of us prudent abstainers at the expense of the benighted masses of wishful thinkers.
Not wanting to be left out of all this fun, I decided that I should attempt to create a humorous Venn diagram. How’d I do?
