Funny Stuff (Chapter 11)

A physician, a lawyer, and a statistician went out hunting and came across a large deer. The physician fired but missed by a yard to the left. The lawyer fired next but missed a yard to the right. The statistician didn't fire but instead exclaimed: "On average, we got it!!!"

Quotations (and advice) about Life: (1) Cronbach: "Alpha is far better than Omega." (2) Cohen: "Listen to your Higher Power." (3) Tukey: "Be Honest." (4) Fisher: "Try LSD." (5) Dunnett: "Control yourself." (6) Spearman: "Keep your things in order."

These 2 jokes were not newly written by me. Instead, they were plucked from depositories of statistical humor, edited slightly, and posted here to in an effort to show that there's a lighter side to this supposedly dry discipline.
