Funny Stuff (Chapter 17)

Variance. That's what most stat professors and their students are at.

Did you hear about the 16-year-old son whose parents were 2 nonparametric statisticians? Well, anyway, the son rebelled against his parents and wouldn't listen to anything they tried to teach him. As might be expected, this young man was never able to get his driver's license. Why? He simply couldn't pass the sign test!

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.
