It is easy to lie with statistics, but it is easier to lie without them. Quote attriuted to Frederick Mosteller (1916 - 2006)
Statistician: A man who believes figures don't lie, but admits that under analysis some of them won't stand up either. A quote from "Esar's Comic Dictionary" (Harvest House, 1943) by American humorist Evan Esar (pen name for Esar Levine).
Song celebrates advantages of the mean (over the mode and median) and includes conceptual references such as BLUE and MAD. May be sung to the tune of "It Had To Be You" (Gus Hahn and Isham Jones). Musical accompaniment realization and vocals are by Joshua Lintz from University of Texas at El Paso.
