Fun with Stats

 

I love this but I wish it was about my stats friend SPSS.  Oh and of course, they should have taken the God’s name in vain part out.  I don’t know why most rappers think rap can’t be clean.

    Reminds my of me “Brubakers Got Back” post!

    I didn’t know saying OMG is profane/unclean. I’ll have to be more careful. So saying the G word without actually talking about G, is that offensive? Do the same G word standards apply to atheists?

    Here’s some rap (or proto-rap) that is guaranteed to be free of offensive meanings:

    Well I for one was offended. They should have taken the bouncing and gyrating parts out. I don’t know why most rappers/proto-rappers think rap can’t be bounce and gyrate-free. And don’t even get me started on that guy hair!

    Offended perhaps, but surely not by anything in the meanings of the words.

    Oh I’m sure if I really, really tried I’d find a word to offend me.

    But I’m bored with being offended. I’m gonna try being titillated next! Lucky for me there’s lots of bouncing and gyrating in those videos!

    Offended by the words perhaps, but surely not by anything in the meanings of the words.

    Bored with being titillated. Now back to being offended. “Titillate” offends me. Don’t know if I want to be offended by word itself or by the meaning. I’m leaning toward the former.

    A person setting out to be offended by in Celantano’s words here would face a struggle if the only thing about words that could give offense were their meanings. For that matter, it would be difficult to be pleased by them, or intrigued by them, or excited by them, if meaning were the only thing that could elicit those responses.

    “Titillate.”

    Yeah, it’s definitely the word itself! Thank you for your insight, oh wise one!

    Here‘s a subtitled version of Prisencolinensinainciusol. It adds a new dimension to the meaninglessness:

    Love it! Kinda reminds me of the GIRLY MAN video I posted last Halloween, and the related “phonetic English subtitled” videos on youtube.

    And thanks for showing everybody what REALLY goes on in your etymology classes! Combining word origins with singing and dancing is brilliant!

    It’s definitely the same genre as “Girly Man.”

    My classes are nothing like that. For one thing, I’m a MUCH better dancer than Adriano.
