Someone sent The Mayor this graphic the other day and I had a really good laugh. But when looked at it again today, I couldn’t figure out for the life of me why it’s funny. Is the joke that the guy on the left is looking at the sales figures and thinking they are doing very well, but it turns out the graph was about death and not sales? So deaths are way up? Where do these people work, ya figure?
‘Splain this one to The Mayor, will ya?
Mare told me through the comment section a while back that she really digs graphs, so, I decided to look high and low (but mostly low) for some Mitchieville appropriate graphs. Like this one.
For those of you that love pictures, but can’t read, this graph is telling us what every hack comedian has told us through lame stand-up routines throughout history: men don’t listen to women unless the topic involves sex.
I find I have unique cut-through-the-chase abilities.
At the bottom of the chart, it says the source for this information is UNICEF Childinfo.
This fascinates The Mayor. I’d really like to see what the numbers in the West look like, but I’m pretty sure they would be 1% or lower. I’d also like to see what the numbers look like in Saudi Arabia and a few other Middle Eastern countries, but once again, I have a feeling I already know the answer.
It blows my mind how conditioned women are in these foreign countries. Now think about how often you pick up a paper or turn on the news and hear stories about what a sexist shithole the West is. How badly women are treated, how they make 18 cents less for performing the same job, how haircuts are 20% more for women than men.
Remember though, our Western culture is no better than any one of these cultures. We can learn from them, they can teach us how to be tolerant, how to be respectful.
I’m not sure if I’ve posted this before – the last three years are somewhat of a blur – but even if I have, I truly think this is still relevant now as it ever was.
