“Core elation is not causation” (joke)

An apple pun was posted on Reddit—3amjokes on March 10, 2020:
   
“Violent crime has increased with the rate of people made joyous by the central part of an apple. But then again, core elation is not causation.”
 
“Core elation” is a pun on “correlation.”
   
   
Wikipedia: Correlation does not imply causation 
In statistics, the phrase “correlation does not imply causation” refers to the inability to legitimately deduce a cause-and-effect relationship between two variables solely on the basis of an observed association or correlation between them. The idea that “correlation implies causation” is an example of a questionable-cause logical fallacy, in which two events occurring together are taken to have established a cause-and-effect relationship. This fallacy is also known by the Latin phrase cum hoc ergo propter hoc (“with this, therefore because of this”). This differs from the fallacy known as post hoc ergo propter hoc (“after this, therefore because of this”), in which an event following another is seen as a necessary consequence of the former event.
