Cornholio often claims to come from Lake Titicaca.
Lee typo'd obscenities in a way that made it sound like "obscene titties".

So your current explanation is that you don't know what the OP was doing, or
what might have happened, or what caused whatever it was that happened to

an unknown effect on them in some unknown way? Uh, OK.
