    OK, I missed a word, sorry about that. And English not being my mother tongue, I did not realize that it might sound as a profanity before reading your comment.

      I think it is safe to assume that MJD was not being ironic/sarcastic.

      And I know, as someone who has never managed to attain any degree of fluency in a 2nd language, that I am very, very lucky that my nursery language turned out to be the de facto international language of computers.

      I think MJD is saying "I understand it's an unintentional dropped word, but you have suddenly made this very funny when it was just a rather dull chapter title, and I really like this -- and I wish I had thought of it first."

      Explaining jokes: nothing funnier than an autopsy.
