    It just means that Brad likes to be the last person to speak in a conversation.

    For example: If you reply to this post it means you have had the last word. But, if I then reply to your post - I will have had the last word and then it could go on and on forever and nobody would ever have the last word!

    :wink:

    At the moment, the last word rest with me, but who laughs last, laughs loudest.
