Long-time reader Daniel L. said this made him laugh.

This prompted me revive a feature I used to run on here called "Light entertainment." Dataviz work that are so easy to ridicule that one wonders if they weren't just made for the laughs. See all previous installments here.

Daniel also said it fails the Trifecta Checkup. What is the question the chart is addressing and what's the message? It's a bar chart, the axis not starting at zero, with multiple colors and Moire effects. and missing labels!
