John Stewart usually never pukes. Believe it or not, some may find this irrelavant.

Would some people find the fact that he never pukes very relevant? Would anyone like this fact? Would anyone dislike this fact?
John Stewart the comedian?
John Stewart the ex-pro-wrestler?
Just some regular guy named John Stewart?

Then did John Stewart actually puke?
Puke = vomit / technicolur yawn etc?

Time and place relevant?

Then did John Stewart actually puke? Irrel :-)
Puke = vomit / technicolur yawn etc? Yes, but essentially irrelavent

Is John Stewart human? He could be, or not. It could be John Stewart the goldfish

Time and place relevant? The time and place of something does matter, but not where and when John puked.

If he did puke:
Is the reason why relevant? Not Really
Illness?
Poison?
Self-induced?

The action of him puking is not the thing that is important about that first sentence. Also, I've altered the wording a bit to be clearer

REVISED STATEMENT: John Stewart usually never pukes. Believe it or not, some may find this information obselete.

Is "usually never" the relevant part of the first sentence?

JSUNP? What's the word for a sentance to help you memorize something? Something of that sort? A trick to remeber grammer if not? Something about double negatives? Obscure phrasing? A phrase no longer used?

Aaaaaah yes, of course. Then "pukes" would be the obsolete word, I suppose.

The information (or this sentence) is obsolete because of the revision of the definition 'what is a planet'? I heard of a astronomy meeting where they are discussing whether pluto should be a planet and if three other celestial bodies should be added.

SPOILER
*************************************************
I recently read an article that talked about the possibility of revoking Pluto's status as a planet. Many school kids use various Mnemonic devices to remember the order of the planets, however if pluto is no longer counted, all the sentences will have to be revised :-)

Thanks for playing my puzzle!
