When polling goes bad

A new “poll” has determined that rich kids work hard, are responsible for their money and give to charity.

How did this scientific endeavour come up with these conclusions? It asked the rich kids what they thought of themselves.

Now strangely they find out the rich kids paint themselves in a positive light. And since rich kids wouldn’t lie or anything, it must be true.

Oh, and the control variable? You know, asking the not-so-rich kids what they thought of themselves as a basis for comparison?

They didn’t bother doing that.

And since “they” is a “wealth management company”, I guess we’ll just have to trust that they don’t have some sort of hidden agenda here.
