    Re: Places where Slocum mentions navigation-related items

    Frank,
    
    Actually, it's just an example of humor similar to bathroom humor that
    has no place on this list.
    
    Additionally, insults about people's mothers can trigger strong
    emotions, especially if their mother's are deceased.  Again, they have
    no place on this list.
