Word Doge: For when word clouds are just too professional.
How often do you find yourself wishing you could graphically illustrate your text data, but bemoaning that word clouds are just so... professional, timeless, and clean? For those moments, we now have Word Doge: an R package that will create a term frequency matrix from your text data, and use it to display the most frequently occurring words in the form of a tacky, outdated internet meme.
Download the R package here: Word Doge (v2, updated Sept. 24, 2015)
Optional data sets, for demonstration: the lyrics from the Decemberists' "Shanty for the Arethusa", Barack Obama's 2014 State of the Union address, and the first chapter of Franz Kafka's The Metamorphosis.
