To give this years April Fools’ day a more analytical touch, we decided last week do a little poll on internet cartoons. We asked our friends and colleagues to select their favourite data related cartoon on the web, and organized a voting session to construct a top 5 list. (You can always share your own favourites in the comments.)

We proudly present you the winners of the April Fools’ 2014 Data Cartoon awards:

Number One: The Cloud 


Number Two: A Study on Statistics


Number Three: Pacman Statistics


Number Four: Dilbert One


Number Five: Haloween Statistics


Number Six: Dilbert Two


Number Seven: XKCD Correlation


Disqualified for the competition, but still funny:

big data
