The thing about statisticians

    A well known firm was looking for a candidate for a prominent position within the company.
    The field was narrowed down to 3 candidates.
    A doctor.
    A mathmetician.
    And a statistician.

    The interviewer asks the doctor, 'what is 2+2'?
    The doctor responds, '4'.
    'Thank you very much'.

    The second applicant was asked the same question.
    The mathmetician responds, '4'.
    'Thank you very much'.

    The very same question was asked of the statistician.
    He stands up and looks around, surveying the office. Walks over to the window, and draws the blinds. He then looks squarely in the eyes of the interviewer and asks, 'what do you want the answer to be'?

    "You're hired"!

    Gotta love numbers!:rolleyes:
