What's All That Screaming?

I learned of a strange correlation
Twixt shark bites and ice cream consumption
They say there’s no causal relation
But I think that’s a faulty assumption
The ultimate carnivore knows where it’s at
All of the flavor comes from the fat!

Ah, but the ice cream
doesn't scream
but if it does
your in a dream

and not a particularly good one at that...

I heard tell that all human shark victims once drank milk. Milk is the gatekeeper food to harder dairy products and ultimately death by sharkbite.
Just thought you should know.

Well read of a strange correlation today when I was reading about synchronicity,,

"Correlation describes the relational strength between two or more events and is a possible explanation for the phenomenon of synchronicity when statistically significant. Though correlation does not imply direct causation, correlation may of course be a property shared by events without there being a direct cause-effect relationship, i.e. two events in an acausal relationship. However, the link between two correlated events which are known to be causally unrelated is not generally the subject of scientific investigation. For example, there is a very high correlation between drownings and ice cream sales. While not directly related, they share a common factor, that being that lots of swimming and ice cream sales occur during summertime. However, it would be very un-scientific to say that ice cream causes drownings."

Couldn't but help think of you and your poem... cheers
