DollarBill Great graph!!! I love it! Lifeboy and Dog-Faced are so rare, none of this suprises me. How about a tripple nipple graph?

ucpete It's actually kinda crazy to me that there were four shows with Lawn Boy, Lifeboy, and Dog-Faced Boy... and that none of those four got a YEM!

paulj This type of analysis has Venn needed for a long time.

the_Crested_Hogchoker Jimmy...

Yeah dad?

The folks over at phish.net didn't mention you and Harpua in their diagram of songs about boys. Is there anything I should know?

Of course not, Dad.

Is this about the goldfish, Jimmy? Have you been parading around as a girl again because you're still mad about the fish?

Fuck off dad, the fish isn't even cool anymore. They mailed it in at jazzfest, didn't give me a new year's gag, and I never got my goddamned allman brothers on Halloween.

Well Jimmy you dressed in drag for Halloween, maybe the band is mad at you like me and your mother.

I'm not a boy anymore, dad. I'm a man and I can dress like middle-aged cooze if I want to. God never listens to this shit anyways. There's nothing wrong with it; this is America dammit.

Jimmy, your mother is going to wash the feces right out of your mouth when she gets home. She's upset already as it is, she gave all her friends AIDS driving them to the bridge game last week.

JargonX This is the kind of useless stat-analysis and chart-making I can get behind. Well done.

, comment by makisupaman
makisupaman Thanks for this. Might I request that the next phishualization™ be of songs that mention bros? According to the fantastic lyrics index, it appears that only four songs mention the word brother, and I am pretty sure there is no overlap between Crowd Control and Brother. I have seen one Brother and Wolfman's in a single show, as well as Sand and Wolfman's, but even three out of four will be a low number. Fun concept, it's got me thinking.

Egads!! Ran this chart (and earlier iterations) past 3 groups of pholks, but none mentioned Fluffhead, ack. And it's even listed in the 'family' section of the lyrics index, which I did several years ago - double ack! Will update the chart and re-post later today. Thanks much @larvalcraze for the catch!

And while @the_Crested_Hogchoker is right that Harpua mentions a boy in the narration, that's not always (right?) - though if there's a consensus that it happens often enough, I'll updating to a six-way Venn (woot).

Actually there were 0 of those shows. 4 was just Dog-faced Boy and Lifeboy.

I can't wait to see this done 5 ways.

BassPlayer regarding this chart, you guys have the best job!
, comment by smoothatonalsnd
smoothatonalsnd This is why the men of Phish have like 10 daughters and only 1 son. As soon as they play a show with Lifeboy, Dog-Faced Boy, Lawn Boy, YEM, and Fluffhead ("boy ya better bend" ;) , then suddenly they will start producing sons.
