1.   'erb is NOT the French pronunciation (which sounds more like 'airbe').

2.   If a puzzle wasn't puzzling, would it be a puzzle?

3.   'It reminds me of cop-speak--- "at this point in time the intoxicated individual exited his vehicle."'
I don't know about US cop-speak, but in the UK they would say 'at this point in time the intoxicated individual has exited his vehicle'. I don't know why they do this but it does irritate me.
