Thought MiB was a tongue-in-cheek jab at American Pop-culture....

I guess it's about time someone stepped in and straightened things out for
the laymen.  I've always just understood what the terms meant in context,
but there are always those people who have to have it spelled out by a
standards committee before they're happy - and someone will still have to
know what the heck is being discussed....

How many of us still regularly work in nibbles?
