The dude abides
Of all the odd bracketing that pops up in direct quotes, this has to be one of the more puzzling examples. In this quote about resolutions for the new year, what word was removed, and why was "dude" put in its place? This dude would like to know.

Maybe the censored word was "bastard," a reference to that memorable moment in "The Full Monty" where one character says:
"Anti-wrinkle cream there may be, but anti-fat-bastard cream there is not."
