Joining the dots

Might there be some kind of causal connection between the divorce rate in Maine and the per capita consumption of butter in the US as a whole? Seems unlikely, but the correlation is staggering. Ditto the age of Miss America plotted against the number of "murders by steam, hot vapours and hot objects". I think Spurious Correlations might just be my new favourite website.
