a picture is worth a thousand words

missed (233) laughs (209)

A little tribute to Leslie Nielsen. As you all probably know Leslie passed away a couple of weeks ago, after a long career in wich he crossed a variety of genres in television and films… but we all know him because he made us laugh…. sorry I mean LAUGH!.

For this visualization I took 1214 user comments from this website. About 25.500 words. I spread all those words over a portrait of Leslie with sizes proportional to it’s repetition. Nicely the first two most used words are ‘missed’ and ‘laughs’… simply true.

The beggining of the word list: rip (279), missed (233), laughs (209), thanks (209), one (166), great (137), movie (129), mr (121), shirley (120), actor (114), man (112), loved (111), call (110), rest (106), peace (104), surely (101), funny (98), time (93), just (91), good (87), sad (83), airplane (76), many (76), serious (72), like (71), made (71), family (65), always (63), naked (60), years (60), gun (58), planet (57), now (56), remember (56), watch (56), world (56), comedy (55), forbidden (54), ever (53), can (50), well (50), never (49), day (48), making (48), guy (47), nielson (45), friends (44), people (44), think (44), life (43), really (43), going (42), know (42), films (39), live (39), much (39), work (39), comedian (38), rumack (38), best (37), played (37), comedic (36), roles (36)…

Thank you very much and… goodbye Shirley!.
