    Regarding cross-cultural references, sea monkeys, idioms, and
    vernacularisms:
    
    I'm almost certain George understands the U.K. meaning of "stuff," (and
    loathes "isms"), but no complaint.

    The explanation above sounds a bit more like a vague euphemism--USA-wise
    FUBAR would be a better fit.  Too many words to express the five-letter
    word, "stuff," or its four-letter UK/USA equivalent.
    
    If we insist on being literal about brine shrimp, should not an argot
    packaged in a ribbon & bow be far behind?
