I ask myself, do I like pancakes,
Or maple syrup and butter?
Or is it the combination
That’s simply utterly utter?
I’ve retrieved a bit of silver
From a failing filling;
It’s really just a sliver,
Do you think it’s worth a shilling?
I don’t know what that is,
Except it’s British money,
And somehow or other the sound of it
Always struck me as funny.
Bayesians like to change their beliefs.
It’s one of their fondest desires.
New facts make them itch, and the only relief
Is reexamining priors.
You cannot see the Milky Way
During the day.
Darkness allows light that is faint
To paint the sky.
If your hard drive has stuff
That would make heads pop,
Don't abandon the thing
At some random shop.
It may be true I didn’t go to law school,
Or “pass the bar”, whatever that may mean,
But I have spent some time upon a barstool,
And studied Law & Order on the screen,
And I believe I’d like to be a justice -
I’ll just face down those senators’ long faces,
And say: “Why do you find it hard to trust us?
I’ll know the answers when I've heard the cases!”
I'd like to be told that I already had
This thing that is spreading, this bug that is bad.
I'd like to believe that it did once infect me,
And somehow or other did not much affect me.
But do I have antibodies to show?
You've already guessed it - my tests all say NO!
They say at King Arthur's Table,
The roundest of the round,
Was a certain Knight who was able
To really pack on the pounds.
I mean the great Sir Cumference,
Who loved to gobble Pi.
His belt more than tripled his radius,
And Pi was the reason why.
Can someone on the internet send
A sample of the Chinese vaccine?
I’m just asking for a friend,
If you know what I mean.
