The above remark is to be considered to be a joke. In no way is it meant to be otherwise unless otherwise stated in a sub-thought disclaimer. In the event where there is a sub-thought disclaimer it will not be a joke but the truth and not to be laughed at because the truth is not funny. With only the VD present, the joke can be confirmed as funny and then is to be laughed at because jokes are funny. Hooty-hoo!
That joke deserves a VD - Van Disclosure.
