@joystickhero: Thanks for playing and especially thanks for commenting!
And you're not definitely alone in being confused about the phrase effects. All through testing I wasn't always sure exactly what would happen, but I made peace with it by knowing that 1) all the info is there by hovering each audience (which is tedious and not intended to be played that way, but it's possible) and 2) the replay value comes from the quirkiness and fun of the random phrases. =) Which I'm super glad to hear you enjoyed! Thanks again.
