If a politician lies in the forest and no one is around to hear it, is he still a douche?

According to statistics, there is a 60% probability that this sentence is true, but only 2% of all statisticians will think so; this comes with a p value of 0.06, of course.

What kind of sick bastard teaches kids to sing,'Tom Dooley'? It was the first song I learned when I took guitar lessons, at age 7 (in a masterpiece of irony, 'Kumbaya' was the second).


  1. Deep. These are deep dude. (And wow. I googled Tom Dooley; that's messed up.)

  2. Hi, thanks for stopping by my blog. I love your "About Me, Briefly" semi'reformed pirate, huh. Interesting.


  3. I could never understand the Old Grandfather Clock (not so sure about that title) song.

    "And it stopped---short, never to go again, when the old man died." Lovely children's song.

    But then again, In a surreal twist, always spelled douche "MC."

  4. dbs: Nothing like a good old fashioned, grisly knife murder as the basis for teaching music to kids, is there?

    raisingmarsh: thanks to you as well. I'll probably never fully reform.

    Nicole: I always liked that My Grandfather's Clock song. Another interesting kiddie song.
