<p><b>Abstract</b>—This note discusses an estimator for the slope of a straight line as proposed by Werman and Geyzel [<ref rid="bibi10511" type="bib">1</ref>]. By computing its frequency distribution, it is demonstrated that the estimator is a fake; it possesses neither a first nor a second moment. Application leads therefore to completely erratic outcomes.</p>
