Recent studies have found a strong, positive correlation with ice cream sales and boating accidents.
This correlation can best be described by the fact that
Ice cream must somehow cause boating accidents.
This correlation is simply a coincidence that could have easily happened by chance.
Temperature is likely a common response variable.
The sample must have been too small to draw any reasonable conclusions about ice cream and boating accidents.
The sample must have been gathered in a biased manner to get such an absurd statement.
