The winning formula of “Anchorman”—from Sex Panther to Brick Tamland
Take a statistical trip to Pleasure Town.
The announcement that Ron Burgundy is making a return to the big screen seemingly took the entire Internet to Pleasure Town this week.
Incredibly though, there are still some who haven’t yet seen the seminal Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy.

From the best times to drink milk to the rules of a news team battle, the graphics cover just about all the key components of the winning Anchorman formula.

There’s no word as yet on what new Twitter user @RonBurgundy thinks.
