“A govmint statistician figured if he took his clothes off and a woman wouldn’t honk his, uh, male appendage she was a lesbian -- So, lissen -- lissen -- he determines that 51% of the town adults are lesbians, including his wife. So, ah, the gross exposure and lack of adequate stimuli of the, uh, specific subject brought about conclusions that were predicated on faulty criteria. The conclusions were accurate within the context of the, uh, the vehicle of judgment, the man with the, ah, misguided and misinformed wee wee. However in truth the statistician’s findings proved only that the women of the town had good sense, including the guy’s wife. Thusly, 51% of the population of the town adults were sensible, which in a small way was a comment on the remaining 49% -- y’know if you believe in statistics that is.”
