    The man was screwed by committee. How very quaint that it's not even quaint.

    Athlai doesn't lie. And he doesn't do sarcasm either, so you know it's true!

    Well so will you said Ethel in a snappy tone and she ran out of the room with a very superier run throwing out her legs behind and her arms swinging in rithum.
    Well said the owner of the house she has a most idiotick run.'

    Not the origin story I was hoping for, TBH. Was Bruce part of the committee?

    So I was in front of a committee. They were beautiful, like you. They tell me I insubordinate too much. They tell me I ought to respect their authoritah! more. They gamble and get in deep with the amateurs. And we are left with hack captains who can't win the championship. They can't take it. I just want to see them smile again. I just want them to know that I don't care about the championship. So... I stick a razor in my mouth and do this...

    [Wardle mimics slicing his mouth open with his tongue]

    ...to myself. And you know what? They can't stand the sight of me! They leave. Now I see the funny side. Now I'm always smiling!
