Ho Ho Ho!

was the Christmas greeting my mother -- a statistics professor -- sent me.

To which, of course, the only possible reply was Ha Ha Ha.

Of course, you failed to reject the null, despite finding it amusing, yes? Regardless of the test statistic, it is significant per se.

I think my mother was putting forward the null and I was rejecting it in my response. Only in that way is the response significant! ;)
