Haha, it's true. I do have a serious FH problem.

I also needed an obscure but familiar keyword so the method could be included in any object with low risk of collision. There is currently near-zero usage of the keyword "gibbler" in any project (Ruby or otherwise).

And thanks for the ! correction. I've updated the repo and docs.




When you say Full House problem, are you referring to collision of names? (All Google comes up with is info on the 90s TV show)

Gibbler was a character on the show. Seems the name was chosen because it's apparently unique in the ruby ecosystem.

I know this only because I was in love with her at the time .. guh
