“That’s like asking the square root of a million; no one will ever know”

“user friendly hyphenated”

Here’s a handy tip: the space bar is the really big one in the middle of the keyboard at the bottom.
“worst joke in the world”
Sorry, Bernard Holland retired. Next?

Thanks, anonymous Google searcher! You just invented me a sweet new tag.
