Behavioralists in Wisconsin Draw Scientific, Highly Rational Conclusions From Raw Data and Other Ethnographic Evidence Gathered at Site of Pool Dig and Landscaping

I'm a little creeped out by the idea of so much testosterone running all willy nilly around here, after all we have heavy machinery, open trenches and rebar sticking out of the ground. Someone's liable to get hurt. Human behavior is tricky stuff, and now that I have been advised by actual behavioralists, I am going to handle things more delicately, more conservatively. For one thing I am cutting way back on their popsicles, and I am also going to reemphasize that we do have 'indoor plumbing' available for their use.

All participants in this study of human behavior are exempt from taking "The Pool Quiz" and will be awarded the highly sought after "Lifetime Pool Pass" and "Lounge Chair Privileges." Others seeking praise and prizes need only to comment favorably, and in writing, to
