 PHASE OF THE MOON n. Used humorously as a random parameter on which
       something is said to depend. Sometimes implies unreliability of
       whatever is dependent, or that reliability seems to be dependent on
       conditions nobody has been able to determine. "This feature
       depends on having the channel open in mumble mode, having the foo
       switch set, and on the phase of the moon."
