Stat people will probably find this amusing. For the rest, this might make your head explode. Gurdeep Stephens and Michael Greenacre perform classic songs but use statistical concepts for lyrics. Here’s Summertime, originally by George Gershwin, turned into a song about statistical modeling (video below).
Statistical modelling is easy,
Data are fitting,
Explained variance is high.
Your data are rich,
And your model’s good-looking,
So hush, statisticians, don’t you cry…
Yeah. That just happened.

I started laughing, then realised that it’s at my university, damn missed it.
Good thing all the performances are available online. Could there be a repeat performance?
Thanks for the link…this was a nice way to begin Saturday! Who says statisticians and statistical models can’t be entertaining and elegant?
By the way, did you finish that PhD?
