Don't worry.  It's better (and more fun) for the rest of us if you tell us
you notice Okrand's little linguistic jokes.  Personally, I'd rather hear
them twice rather than not at all, because you're afraid of repeating someone

BTW, is there a section of the FAQ listing some of Okrand's more egregious
