Adventures in Redundancy

“Sexy life insurance actuary.”

Update: From a reader who didn’t catch my sarcasm:

I think that might be an adventure in oxymoronacy.  I remember hearing at some point that an actuary is someone who’s good at math but doesn’t have the personality to be an accountant. On a related note, I know the only actuary joke: Three actuaries are hunting.  Upon spotting a deer, the first actuary shoots and misses 20 feet wide to the left. The second actuary’s shot is 20 feet wide to the right.  The third actuary jumps up and down and says, “We got it!”.
