So, two ogres, Biff and his mother Griselda, were at home and it was approaching dinnertime. Biff was absorbed in his favorite computer game, 'Bludgeons and Flagons'.

Griz shouted, "It's ready, you ugly little ogre!” to which her son replied, "I'm not really hungry".

Griselda, who had a career in advertising with the American Cattle Association shouted back, " But Biff, it's warts for dinner!"

And the frequentist is using the above probability as the basis for his decision.
Of course, were he to be an adept of Lotfi Zadeh he would be forced to admit that the sun exploded 97.22% and is intact 2.78% wink
