Patterns

When doing the obits for Somd.com I notice a disproportionate number of people die in their birth month. There is also a month pattern of birth/death as well. Today, for instance, a large number of people who died in July were born in October. There's no age pattern - they could be old or young - but they either die in their birth month or a number of them who died within days of each other share a birth month.

I mentioned this to Monello and he remarked that a large number of criminals on the true crime shows he watches have the middle name "Wayne". As in "John Wayne Gacy" or "Edward Wayne Edwards". There are so many of them that there are websites dedicated to it. Search for "killer middle name Wayne" to get more info on this phenomenon.

Obviously not all Waynes are killers, but many killers are Waynes.

Therefore Most Clintons are.... :jet:

to arrive at your stellar punchline I think you need to rework the syllogism as follows:

  1. Most Wayne’s are felons
  2. All Clinton’s are Waynes
Conclusion: Most Clintons are ...

but even this version fails (logically speaking). Here’s a tighter (and funnier? You be the judge) version:

  1. All male Waynes are rapists
  2. All Clinton’s are Waynes
Conclusion: Bill Clinton is a ...
