Argument that the attempt at humor was technically slightly relevant in one possible, but unlikely, interpretation of the topic, based on only reading the first three posts.

Argue that statistics are the third form of lies, so not being statistically relevant only makes a point stronger.

Counter by arguing that this post (and the quoted one) do in fact exist, but do not really mater, except for the purpose of intentionally interrupting the serious discussion of the topic at hand, with something that has not yet been mentioned about the topic appended to it to avoid being completely off topic.

Brings up Justin Bieber to say that it's ridiculous to bring up Justin Bieber in a conversation like this.
"And he turned back, and looked on them, and cursed them in the name of the LORD. And there came forth two she bears out of the wood, and tare forty and two children of them."

Talks about how depressed I've been lately. Mentions that you guys are the only real human contact I've ever had. If this comment gets 100 thumbs up, I will go talk to that girl I saw in North Dakota on vacation three years ago.
