    There is 'Conversational English, and there's 'Business English.' Most can't separate the two. At times it takes a bit of sorting, but I usually get it 'Write.'

    I would think that your uncle is perfectly capable of jacking himself off. ;)

    ...which of course is exactly why your uncle is there helping you in the first place.

    Dearest Alex,

    I hope this post finds you well.

    May I be so bold as to suggest that you step away from the keyboard and go fishing?

    Warmest regards,

    Phineas Q. Hookset

    Ah, my dear friend, we sallied forth for just that occasion early this morning! We set sail upon stunning Lake Wenatchee, but alas, our piscene prey were few and far between. In other words, the skunk was upon us! I remain,

    your most ob't servant

    Maybe he helped his Uncle Jack "off" a horse, as in putting the poor creature down to end its suffering. But if he caught Uncle Jack molesting livestock, maybe he should "off" Uncle Jack.

    I read that perfectly and as fast as usual. You just blew my mind. I put it in front of my fiancé, and she did the same.

    Don't drop that P and traverse Jack's ass.

    It is not Kaboom, just Boom.
