Laughed at the “my WTF Brain.” Like it means “What’s This For?”
Insider story: after I said one of the seven forbidden words, Mike and I were talking about bleeping it out. Since my computer was broken, and I was running on a pendrive Linux on my wife’s, I had limited capabilities, so I just cut/pasted me saying “bleep” over the offending word. Sounds kinda funny, IMO. Necessity is the mother of invention.
