A qualitative anthropologist invited a friend of his, a quantitative sociologist, to his place for a BBQ to celebrate the end of summer and the beginning of a new academic year.The anthropologist fancied himself quite the cook and made a variety of kabobs for this occasion, to show off his cooking skills.

At the end of the night the anthropologist asked his sociologist friend what he thought of his cooking.

“I don’t have enough information to confidently respond to that question” his friend replied, rather disappointingly.

“Why not?!” The anthropologist exclaimed in dismay. “You tried the lamb kabob, the bell pepper and beef kabob, the teriyaki chicken kabob, and even the all-veggie kabobs with my homemade garlic and herb marinade!”

“Yes,” the sociologist responded, “but all my samples were skewered.”

This is not an original, I just thought it was too amazing not to share, and after having just finished prelims (with a classical theory section) I thought this was super appropriate.
