Sentence: Eee by gum, ar Donny's a dolt. Thar ee sits sticking bandaids on his hairy knees. Ee knows it's gonna sting like blazes when he pulls em off, but he keeps on doin it. ee must ave arrbeeaye.

Etymology: RSI (repetitive strain injury) + B is for brain


petaj forgot to weave in "repetitive brain injury", but I'm sure verbotomists are too clever to have arrbeeaye and would have figured it out anyway. - petaj, 2007-06-07: 03:32:00

petaj Never heard of Arby's. Sounds like some undesirable franchise we don't need in Australia. - petaj, 2007-06-07: 22:28:00
