Did you mean to let a “cunt” slip into release around 2:46 ?

(not complaining, just it stood out on a normal release)

Whoops. Normally I would cut those. I’ll let this one slide, because there’s a quirk in the FCC-style check for profanities. If a word like that is used as an insult, it’s not a profanity. However, if it’s used to refer to biology, then it is a profanity.

“You’re being a dick,” isn’t profane.
“I grabbed his dick,” is profane.

I won’t pretend I can unravel why that’s true.

Does Brodeur realize that Lair stuff was in 4e?

Because it’s not a 5e invention…
