Perhaps only three categories are needed: “G,” for young audiences, “T” for teenagers, and “A” for adults.

I love reading your quotes, Mr M. When I grasp the context, I'm always pleased to be reading what I am.

But when I don't grasp the context, as in your first two quotes here, it's as if I've read two of the quotes placed in the "Discuss" section of a General Studies exam.

Mind-boggling ...
