I disagree with your statement....... braindead lyin brian.......
'lyin' brian' is of the same lineage as dirtling,'earthling has no brain', eart hling(alien has no affinity to Earth), injun killer(has no love for human beings). Both are of a lineage, centered somewhere beyond the Alpha Centauri star system. Functionality has been accomplished without resort to a brain! Quite a stunning feat!
Therefore, it is obvious that 'lyin' brian' cannot be brain dead.
I know, I know. Too much information about zero quality lifeforms. But sometimes one must sacrifice Hobbit folk gentleness, to correct assumptions.
