Getting Graphic: The Comedy Matrix

In our Getting Graphic series, blogger Orli Matlow interprets the week’s news with humorous charts and graphs. 

Happy Sunday! In honor of last week’s previews, I present you with Orli’s Comedy Matrix™, plotting the funniness and the sensibilities of Columbia institutions. Both Orgo Night and the Varsity Show serve vital roles in our community—we need both the middle-finger-flipping-CUMB and the jazz hands-Varsity Show.

And now for the opposite of funny—the major sources of frustration this week.


Also: the Jazz House has received the Special Interest Community spot in River!

    Can Orli please including CUMB in these? She’s a member, and shouldn’t get to use spec for free publicity.

    It’s true that Orgo Night can’t match the Varsity Show.
