So it seems that, while Ted, Barney and Robin thought it merited an intervention, Marshall’s charts were actually really, really awesome. Therefore, I will dedicate an entire post to their awesomeness, and attempt to reconstruct them. Because I have finals next week, and a desire to avoid studying for them at all costs.
I’ll keep updating, as people tell me what things say and if I can figure them out myself. (If you can read something I can’t/get a joke I don’t/think I misread something, post a comment or shoot us an email. Thanks!)
In the meantime, a partial overview:
First up, Marshall’s Barney-related graphs.
Secondly, dirty sounding Presidential names. They are:
1. Johnson, 2. Bush, 3. Harding, 4. Polk, 5. Filmore, 6. Pierce, 7. LBJ, 8. Hoover, 9. Bush, 10. Clinton.
The PIE chart of his favorite BARS (In percentage of awesomeness):
Strangely, Mclaren’s is only slightly in the lead, with 30% which, the key tells us, makes it Super righteously awesome. Second place is McGee’s with 28%, which earns it the ranking of “uber awesome.” (McGee’s, by the way, is the name of the REAL bar on which Mclaren’s is based. True story). Third place: P & Gs with 27% (which is, I think, almost uber awesome?), then White Horse Tavern with 12% (“comparatively non-awesome) and King Cole Bar with 3%.
The BAR chart of his favorite PIES (in percentage of tastiness).
Okay, from left to right it’s Strawberry Rhubarb, Pumpkin, Lemon Meringue, Blueberry, and Key-lime. The rankings are similar to the bar rankings (ex.: Blueberry is “Super righteously tasty” while Strawberry Rhubarb is “Uber tasty”).
[projection charts to be added soon]
The projections are color coded: Marshall=Red, Lily=Green, Barney=Blue, Robin=um… Cardinal? the other red?, Ted=yellow. Robin has the most consistent downward trend in interest, while Ted dips down fast but then comes back up a little and stabilizes as the most interested of the group in Marshall’s charts and graphs. Yes, more interested than his wife.
