@Robusto well I can't do anything about it now... And actually I am quite certain I would have deleted them myself if I was to handle those flags. The dependencies are not obvious to a human, and the engine issues no warning. I don't think the engine even knows we have a blog.
Scrooge McDuck is a cartoon character created in 1947 by Carl Barks and licensed by The Walt Disney Company. Scrooge is an elderly Scottish anthropomorphic white duck with a yellow-orange bill, legs, and feet. He typically wears a red or blue frock coat, top hat, pince-nez glasses, and spats and is portrayed in animations as speaking with a slight Scottish accent, also sometimes known as a Scottish burr. His dominant character trait is his thrift, and within the context of the fictional Disney universe, he is the world's richest person.
Named after Ebenezer Scrooge from the 1843 novel ...
Ebenezer Scrooge is the principal character in Charles Dickens's 1843 novel, A Christmas Carol. At the beginning of the novel, Scrooge is a cold-hearted, tight-fisted and greedy man, who despises Christmas and all things which give people happiness.

@Robusto I'm thinking of turning it into a Toastmaster's speech.

(Swearing is, of course, allowed on YouTube, but he's chosen the role of educator to kids, so I suppose he chose not to.)
On the other hand, I wouldn't be able to use the line I came up with in a comment on this site: There's nothing fucking wrong with profanity.
It's confusing. That's a probly-not. And it's not colloquial English to say "will not" and "does not"; native speakers say "won't" and "doesn't". That makes the sentence a little more accessible, but not enough. Horn's rule is Simplex Negatio Negat; Duplex Negatio Affirmat; Triplex Negatio Confundit. Single negative negates; double negative affirms; triple negative confuses. — John Lawler2 days ago
