Thank you Ruth - I didn't know that.

Let me think, correlation doesn't mean cause. So, what is the significance of murder and market share changing together?  

How about this one:

"there's a correlation between rapes and telephone poles in almost every community".

Solution? It is a joke. Falsification or misuse of data.

Oh great, just when we feel helpless and hopeless a set of movies come out with superhuman elements that save the good guys and cause the downfall of the bad guys. Now, what is a real person to do? Give up? Try harder? Wither in utter fear? Get angry and fight back? Grieve the inability to have magic in our hands? Or laugh until sides hurt over the ridiculousness of life?
I think I will go with laughing. Escapist? Yes" But it beats depression.

Not sure Joseph - but I have noticed many signs with misspellings before.
