Now, all of us certainly wish you the best of recovery. Still, you shouldn't go derailing a conversation like that. ;)

Um, really? Rutabega? Ugh. I'm okay with snakes, beetles, and gators, but rutabega? I can't imagine anything making that taste GOOD.

Wait, is vutabega an actual word? If not, it's not so much a pun as... I don't even remember what the word is for basically replacing a letter with another...

Xhosa, the Bantu people of South Africa, might know if that's a word.
(And I think you might be referring to THIS, which is what I was doing!)

FASA made a Doctor Who roleplaying game, quite some time ago. For most of my life, that was my only exposure to the character. I finally got to see him in all his glory when Nine showed up.

How old is Tom now? I know he's still doing audio plays, but he's gotta be a bajillion and a half.

Might be. Hard to figure out how large a bajillion is. I believe a bajillion is larger than umpteen.
