I did my degree in English/French Language/Linguistics back in the '70s, but I only got a middling grade, and I've worked in software development ever since, so I'm really only an expert on English language in the same way any articulate native speaker is.

Sugar Bear: Oh. Then, uh, where your warrant at, motherfucker?
