It's probably not safe to taunt META-BRAIN!, is it?

I can picture (or the auditory equivalent) this as the soundtrack for a cheezy late night commercial in the middle of the late late late show.

Cheers. So much new talent rearing strange heads around here, of late.

Isn't 'of late' sibling to 'as always'.

I'm glad you like. That one came from a group activity where we were supposed to do an impromptu sales presentation for anything we liked, the more manic the better. Meta-Brain just came to me - from where, I don't know. But I've thought that it would be fun to do a Youtube Meta-Brain parody commercial, complete with kids that are out of control before Meta-Brain and "Stepford Wives" like little zombies standing before a smiling Donna Reed style mom with their Meta-Brains in place.

Most certainly, Strawman. "Of late" is the smarter, more attractive older brother that scores both on the football field and after the senior prom. While 'as always' is best left at home, safe in his gimp-suit, all trussed up and gagged, one is never embarrassed to be seen in public with 'of late.'

So there... Pfffft

:D

So you're telling me 'of late' is Biff Tannen, and 'as always' is George McFly?

But they weren't brothers!
