[Ads-l] Again, behind the curve!

A squib for an app:

"A unique, _one of its kind_, arcade game!"

It's mind-bogglingly new - apparently, it's not only during childhood that
everything is brand-new! - to me, but there are 1,410,000(!) raw hits - can
you bleee dash shit?! - for the phrase,

_a one of its kind_

which is just _word-salad_ - a word that I learned in 1972 as linguistics
jargon, but hearing it used on a Doctors show led to the discovery that
it's psychology jargon, from at least WWII - to me.

Youneverknow,

in both cases.
