Well, so who's going to write a program to produce this graph? Seems to me this would be a nice exercise... Of course you should use vector graphics, so the graph can be scaled at will ...
Will the program allow to scale the pie-chart and bar-graph in the 1st 2 panels? Will you be allowed to pick a font and font-size?

Perhaps that's why it didn't happen.
As to a) - I bow to you, this was really eye-opening, also, you really got me laughing
In regard to b) I fully agree with the analysis - that _must_ be the reason, as people posting "First!" are generally neither very topical nor witty.

Registered just to answer this!
"This sentence is spoken with syllables"

Hmm... is that supposed to be a basic or an extended regexp?
"This sentence is spoken with 9+ syllables "?
Or... aww, you mean the original poster meant it to be a glob? He should have said!
In this case I'll offer:
This sentence is spoken with 2 of my very own lips - and still, it merely consists of
This sentence is spoken with 4 times as much food in my mouth than I ever tried speaking with before - I wonder if you can still make out any
Edit: (took too long, several new posts in between, also, this is getting too long - will put in separate post)
