Open Letter to Demetri Martin

Dear Demetri,

As a fan of your work I humbly offer the following for your consideration.  In your "Large Pad" routine, you refer to a "simple chart" relating three variables: how short someone is, how drunk he is, and how funny it is.  You provide a 2-dimensional graph when a 3D graph is required to show the amount of funniness for each combination of shortness and drunkness:




The graph you provided appeared to depict shortness as [exponentially] dependent on drunkness, which is not what you intended.

I hope this clarifies the relationship you seek to communicate.

Sincerely,

Nathan Shields
