The funny thing is that he's not wrong, and that's kind of exactly what the counselor is talking about; the way people form mental images and definitions of things from the moment they're born.

Yes, the simplicity of the idea helps explain the concept of psychological stereotypes within the context of the story.

It sounds more like she was describing a basic Platonic theory of forms but realised she had to dumb it down a lot for the sake of the goon, but still overestimated him.

I think she’s just dumbing it down for him, but yes, other species do it too. There was a study from MIT that looked at this sort of by accident, because what it was originally focused on was roadkill. Somebody noticed that crows were getting hit by trucks on the Mass Turnpike at higher rates than you’d expect, so they did some field study to figure out why. It had to do with pattern recognition and murder behavior (murder of crows, I mean), and how they set “watchcrows” to warn the group of danger while they fed on other roadkill. Crows can definitely tell the difference between trucks and cars, and it turned out that trucks were more dangerous because none of the Boston watchcrows could say “TRUCK!” but of course they could all say “CAH, CAH, CAH”

Don't be so gloomy. After all it's not that awful. Like the fella says, in Italy for thirty years under the Borgias they had warfare, terror, murder, and bloodshed, but they produced Michelangelo, Leonardo da Vinci, and the Renaissance.

I've heard it before too, but what I appreciated isn't the joke per se (it is a good joke), it's deploying it into a conversation that's already talking about pattern recognition and trucks, and watching everyone hit the ground face first when Pirate Radar pulls the rug out from under 'em

It’s much more effective when you work it into a seemingly regular conversation. Some versions of it write the last line like “all of them could say CAH CAH CAH but none of them could say TRUCK!” which is wrong, the CAH CAH CAH has to be the last thing you say because people won’t really be listening to anything after that

The joke is old, but it's all about the delivery. The seamless transition between a seemingly serious post into a dad joke is what makes it.
