It’s Thanksgiving and Hannukah week! That means family time, and family time means passive aggressive comments galore (oh, joy). Here’s a pie chart breakdown of a classic passive aggressive mom comment, which most daughters can see coming a mile away. Happy holidays!
I’m heading to Portland this week, and me and Winona have plans to get brunch. Do you get brunch? It’s practically an Olympic sport in Brooklyn and, says Winona, Portland. There’s the waiting, and the outfits, and the hangovers and the drinking and eating. So much stuff goes into brunch! Brunch, brunch, brunch! As such, I’ve created a pie chart, delineating about how brunch typically goes, in case you feel like you’re missing out.
Still not sure who you think is going to win Best Picture tonight? Why not try a strictly mathematical approach. That is, our buddy Jesse David Fox’s vigorously researched Oscar Movie Pie Charts, which detail all the uh, details of each Best Picture nominee. For instance, did you know that “Argo” is basically 25 percent about “that week in college you pretended to be from Canada,” and another five percent “the child-hugging end of ‘Mrs. Doubtfire’”? I’m going to go ahead and pretty much guarantee you had no idea that’s what “Argo” was about. For that and more incredible filmic revelations, please enjoy a few more pie charts after the jump. For the whole slate, click the link. And don’t forget to follow @TheFrisky, @xoamelia, @havethehabit and the hashtag #OscarBuzz for all livetweeting action tonight starting at 6 p.m. [NYMag.com]
