Sorry for going off-topic, but here are
something I found on the web 
yesterday - an explanation of 
statistics in poetic form:

             First, you see your data for what they seem to be
     Then, you ask them for the truth  - are you what you seem to me?

You see with broad expanse
       you ask with narrowed power
       you see and ask and see
   and ask and see...    and ask

With brush you paint the possibilities
     with pen you scribe the probabilities

For in pictures we find insight
    while in numbers we find strengt

(author is probably Forrest Young)
