Ironically enough, I think any judge would have to rule this FALSE because
although Glotmorf did not succeed in giving Scoff! a Kick, it had nothing to
do with Scoff!'s acting as female Style Police. In fact, the reason why
Glotmorf failed to give Miss Scoff! a Kick was because he said "I am *so*
giving her a Kick in the Ass." instead of "Scoff! gets a Kick in the Ass.".
Since the Kick rule specifically requires the latter, the Kick fails not
because it was unjustified but because it never happened in the first place.
