The Bell Curve

The Bell Curve

I am yet to meet a normal person,

a person who is balanced and dancing
in the middle of all bell curves,

so today I am declaring that

I’m at variance with variance,
of the flat paper variety.

Despite what the doctor says,
bell curve normality
is a statistical anomaly
that could use a restrictive diet.

Do you know what happens when bell curves
meet for a drink on Friday night?
They merge salubrious-ly into 3d,

beer goggles aside,

spheres emerge, octopus like
with endless slender legs,
radiating

then

morphing into flesh and blood
human beings.

ps.
I retain the right to retract my variance
on meeting a normal person.

______________________________

Just in case you don’t know, the bell curve is the statistical normal distribution and variance is the measure of variation from the mean of the distribution. Those who vary too far from the mean are considered far from normal 😉

  1. As a repost, it should ring a bell!
    If you invert one of those you get a wineglass. Just needs a stem and base, which they no doubt develop when meeting for a drink. 🙂

  2. Brilliant! 😀

    “Do you know what happens when bell curves
