i probably should have explained this

ok, so i forgot everyone doesn't actually have access to all the thoughts inside my head, and it's possible that whole "brazillion" reference made no sense to anyone but me and matt. it's a reference to this joke:

Donald Rumsfeld is giving the President his daily briefing on Iraq. He concludes by saying: “Yesterday, 3 Brazilian soldiers were killed.”

“OH NO!” the President exclaims. “That’s terrible!”

His staff sits stunned at this display of emotion, nervously watching as the President sits, head in hands.

Finally, President looks up and asks, “How many is a brazillion?”



matt and i now refer to any large quantity as "a brazillion"... :-)

  2. See, it didn't even faze me, bcase I often make up words to describe large numbers -- majillion, being one of them. So brazillion made total sense to me. Although now that you explain it, it's much funnier.
