Fail… the cleverness has totally overshadowed the content here. He’s using pie-chart visuals (the two headgear photos) to represent values that don’t add up to 100%. And in the case of the woman, the large black area completely dwarfs the other slices, even though it carries no meaning. I think Peter has forgotten that the primary purpose of a chart is to communicate, not to entertain.
