Nine Boston-Themed Venn Diagrams

This week marks John Venn’s 180th birthday. Here are some (not-so-)handy Venn diagrams about Boston to celebrate.

À la Monday’s Google Doodle, which celebrates the 180th birthday of John Venn by letting users match up topics to see what they have in common, we thought some Boston-themed Venn diagrams might tickle the funny bone this sunny Monday afternoon. Enjoy…

For the record, New York Times, you can call it Southie, but please never refer to South Boston as “Sobo” ever again.

You too, Esquire—the “South Bay”? No way.
