Chop chop chop

I get the feeling that when appears, something will get chopped to pieces. First I had a story like "F measuring the tilt of square by rolling eightballs and measuring the time", when I noticed that I still needed to include the cleaver. From there it was just "something gets chopped badly". I'm thinking of finding a separate story for the fen4 meaning, but for now I'll leave that as an exercise for the reader.
