Long time reader Chris P. finds another one. Is there a point when these parodies become stale?

Bernard L. tipped us about this "infographic":
The chart is missing a title. The arcs present "sleep schedules" for the named people. The "data" comes from a book. I wonder about the accuracy of such data.
Also note the inherent "publication bias". People who do not follow a rigid schedule will not be able to describe a sleep schedule, thus taking themselves out of the chart.

Reader James F. spotted this chart on Times of London a few weeks ago.
A lot of effort went into this display. Maybe the point is to make a bunch of data tables less boring?

Reader Orjan L. sent in this Swedish delight:
It's on the last page of this report, and I'm told it's about the number of weapons seized by Swedish customs each year.
On p. 8, I found a hockey-stick chart:
Sweden in ecstasy.
For those who love cross-over charts, look no further than p. 3 which has a reverse hockey stick.
