87.6% of all statistics are made up right on the spot.

"The book"?

Did you know that 87.166253% of all statistics claim a precision of results that is not justified by the method employed?

Statistics mean never having to say you are certain...

Lies, damn lies and statistics.

Numbers will tell you what you want to hear but correctly posed question can give you usefully answer.
Still this is just statistical answer and not factual answer.

I hated statistics in grad school.  Hated it.

But you ought to be able to do anything you need to in Excel.

I'm pretty rusty so I'd likely be no help.

Apparently no statisticians but lots of comedians.   :D
