comment When should “no problem” replace “you're welcome” as a response to “thank you”?
@anongoodnurse, Spaniard here, natively speaking Spanish (not studied). No idea of what is your context, but if those Spanish-speaking patients you mention are Mexican or from other latin-american countries, that would explain some strange-sounding (to Spaniards) Spanish. "No problema" is "Spanglish". Just like "carpeta" seems to be Mexican (?)/Spanglish for what in Spanish we call "alfombra" (carpet in English). Anyway, even if "ningún problema" is more grammatical, still sounds bad as an answer to "gracias" or similar. "Sin problema" sounds slightly better, but still suspicious.

comment What is a thorpe?
AT&T's Kerr's document is archived at web.archive.org/web/20081221092652/http://… . It explains that it was purely a practical joke, and laughs at the "thorp"/"therp" Old-English/Old-German theory that came afterwards.

comment Drunkard's breath
Thanks all, though still nothing comes close to what I expected. I was hoping for something Douglas-Adams-like; I'd swear I read something in his style which, as was typical for him, used rather unassuming words to strike you in that unique angle needed to snap you into context. (Maybe it was Terry Pratchett...?)

Not the intended meaning, and too... rare?

Mhm... not quite, but you made me think that "drenched" can be a good beginning...
