Aaaaggghh! It's a dreaded cylinder chart!!


Do most people even know the difference between a histogram and a bar chart? Yeah, pretty sure this data is fake.


Might have been funnier if the percentages didn't add up. At least the lie factor is way off.


Too bad the designer didn't try to cram data into the pie charts. That would have been awesome.
