(A riveting pun!  I’m sure that it baffled a few of you, but you have come here to secure your inclinations.  Right?  You all come here to “screw your courage to the sticking place!”  You want to stay in the loop.  You’re hooked.  Yes, Unclerave is here to unite the Jumbled masses!  Aah, the ties that bind.
