Because I almost majored in psychology back in college, I thought I’d dedicate today’s edition of WikiAnswers Wednesday to my talents in analysis. I make no guarantee that you will be cured, however.

73 because a motorcycle has no doors.
Ah, yes. Drawing attention away from the issue at hand. A confusion-diversion tactic.
0 because Dairy Queen don’t deliver on Wednesday.
Too true, and possibly the best answer of the bunch. I’ve been a victim of that Dairy Queen problem for years.
63 because John Lennon isn’t from Scandinavia
This is a guilt tactic. John Lennon is dead, and therefore when hearing his name in the response, the questioner becomes saddened and forgets the initial question. Works extremely when using Martin Luther King, Jr.
Where is Ted Kennedy on this day? Double the pancakes. Size of the dog house could also affect the hysteresis loop, propagating a negative slew rate, possibly causing the pancake effect. This is remedied by all pancake “roofers”, no pun intended, to eat said pancakes prior to “roofing”. The slew rate will get through the hysteresis loop, validating good shingles. That is all the clarification you need.
Verbose ranting. Indeed.
Ice Cream has no bones
A classic response to any question, and quite a cliche I might add.
There you have it, a display of psychological genius. Care to share your own?
