I don't get the title. Is it supposed to be another inside joke like brown is for farmer?

Listen, it wasn't funny and apparently I was not the only person who didn't get it at first ^. And honestly, it wasn't that obvious in the first place. Anyways, I don't like fudge.

Personally, I thought it was a little bit funny. YMMV, obviously. My response was intended more to be an opportunistic riff on the whole mnemonic thing as well as a bit of a hint for you or anyone else who didn't get the reference - "Every Good Boy Deserves Fudge" being a common mnemonic phrase used for learning musical notation.

Testy testy. Good one lawyerdad. BTW, doesn't anyone care at all that Pluto is no longer a planet? I feel like I've been living a lie all these years!

Isn't YMMV a car term?

I think of it ("Your Mileage May Vary") as a literal car term that has through common usage mutated into a metaphorical "internet term" denoting that individuals often have different perceptions of or reactions to comparable experiences, facts, etc.

I'm still trying to get over the map of Eastern Europe since the Iron Curtain collapsed - you just can't go home again.

What I found most interesting about this story is that a group of people can get together and unilaterally decide that something no longer is. Can this be applied to other areas of life? Is there a committee that decides that a woman is no longer a "babe"? If there is, I have some prime candidates for demotion.
