I.Q.R. in a Box

Levitt doesn’t get why Yankovic’s “White and Nerdy” video generated thousands of YouTube comments when there’s the Johns Hopkins Department of Biostatistics.

They do mostly poetry, but also have a music video: “I.Q.R. [interquartile range: a measure of statistical dispersion] In a Box” — a spoof on S.N.L.‘s slightly racier version.

Zero comments so far, but video director Allison Lind, a graduate student in public health at Johns Hopkins, is still proud of Hopkins’ “biostatistical artistry.”

Her other credits include “Too Logit,” for which MC Hammer provided inspiration.
