This is a funny chart that makes great use of scatter plots to reveal patterns.

I hope people don't take this chart too seriously because the joke is really on the non-obese people. Even in the most obese state, < 30% of the population are obese so the y-axis really reflects the non-obese people (not the obese as implied by the x-axis)!
