The Gilbert fam­i­ly has long been known for play­ing with lan­guage.  This lan­guage play is con­ta­gious and gen­er­al­ly affects as many “Sur­ro­gate Gilberts” that hang around with var­i­ous fam­i­ly mem­bers.  Some have likened this to the Borg (“Resistence Is Futile”) but gen­er­al­ly, once assim­i­lat­ed, they only occa­sion­al­ly com­plain about it.

The Gilbert’s often look at things indi­rect­ly and that indi­rect­ness is informed by a life time appre­ci­at­ing the CBC, sci­ence fic­tion (notably Star Trek and Doc­tor Who), the Angli­can Church, sail­boats and Gilbert & Sul­li­van.  It is also informed by oth­er pop cul­ture that cross­es our path, but this is often “qual­i­ty” and not “con­sumer” pop cul­ture.  Our humor is also often intro­spec­tive as laugh­ing at one­self is “most­ly harmless.”

    Should “most­ly harm­less” not be in the form of a link to the Hitch­hik­er’s Guide?
