He's a singer/songwriter/comedian. This morning I heard one of his new songs ... and it was a farce on statistics .. and the opening line is something like "60% of statistics are made up on the spot and 86.4% of people believe them whether they are true or not"
I just thought that was an appropos line, given our recent debates, and the focus on studies/statistics on this board.
The rest of the song is hilarious. Goes on to spout 65.4% of this, 98% of that, 23.4% this ... and ends with something like 70% of statisticians hate their jobs ... lol
