Zach Weinersmith’s Bad Chart Thursday

As wonderfully bad as that bad chart is, I was more taken by the realization that Zach would be the perfect first guest poster for BCT. I asked him if he could contribute something, and within the day I had this beauty:

Thanks so much to Zach Weinersmith and Pat Robertson for this fine contribution to BCT.
