We Need to Import More Lemons from Mexico

There is only one conclusion you can reach from looking at the above graph. The more lemons the US imports from Mexico the lower the highway fatality rate. In fact, lemon imports explain almost all of the variance in the fatality rate. Clearly traffic safety advocates need to focus more effort on increasing lemon imports.

Keep in mind that the difference between laughable correlations and serious research is sometimes no greater than researcher bias. There's a fine line between stupid and clever.
