3 statisticians are out hunting. They see a duck suddenly fly by. The first one shoots, and goes over it by 6 inches. The second one shoots and goes under it by 6 inches. The third one shouts, "We got him! We got him!"

Then the bird looks back at the statisticians with a big smile and says, "I guess you needed a bigger sample size!"

Reading your recent posts has been like dipping my bottom over and over into a bath of the silkiest oils and creams.

But she didn't "mean" it.

Several decades ago I was told, by the head of a graduate statistics department, that a statistician was someone who could stick his head in the oven and his feet in the freezer and declare, "On average, this is a very comfortable temperature".

I find the test image that conjures up to be as entertaining as the punchline itself.

TOP 10 REASONS TO STUDY ECONOMICS

1. Economists are armed and dangerous: "Watch out for our invisible hands."
2. Economists can supply it on demand.
3. You can talk about money without every having to make any.
4. You get to say "trickle down" with a straight face.
5. Mick Jagger and Arnold Schwarzenegger both studied economics and look how they turned out.
6. When you are in the unemployment line, at least you will know why you are there.
7. If you rearrange the letters in "ECONOMICS", you get "COMIC NOSE".
8. Although ethics teaches that virtue is its own reward, in economics we get taught that reward is its own virtue.
9. When you get drunk, you can tell everyone that you are just researching the law of diminishing marginal utility.
10. When you call 1-900-LUV-ECON and get Kandi Keynes, you will have something to talk about.

(Yeah I know it's not statistics, but economics uses statistics as one of its primary tools (I should know, I had to study statistics for my economics degree and it was exactly like the original joke above.))

A couple of people were once traveling in a hot air balloon and became lost. They were low on fuel, so they looked for the nearest person who could tell them where they were. Seeing a small group of people in a nearby field, they touched down a short distance away and asked them where they were. The group of men in the field said "hold on a minute!" After several minutes, the people in the balloon asked again, "please! We are low on fuel, and we just want to know where we are!" to which the men replied, "we are still discussing that! Just hold on!" After a while, one of the men turned back to the couple in the balloon and said, "we have figured it out! You are in a balloon!" It was then that the couple knew that they were speaking to a group of mathematicians; their answer was absolutely correct, but it was also absolutely useless.
