Two managers were taking a course in basic statistics. After an evening in class, one said to the other, "I've noticed that every time a new idea is introduced, I have to look up three or four words just to make sense out of the idea. Why do statisticians obfuscate their message with so much terminology? Why can't they simplify it instead?"
The second manager replied, "I'll tell you, but only after I find out what 'obfuscate' means."
