Yep, got it :) [In reply to] Can't Post

I understand the rules, I just thought the poster got the line wrong rather than deliberately changing it.

And man, you guys are good at these! I'm usually pretty good at puns and humor, but I'm having a hard time coming up with Swiftly puns! BTW I loved the Beren "offhandedly" one! Cool
