Assunto:  "Thank away" -- Explaining it away
 
Mensagem:  Breckenfeld, they appear all over the Internet. One such example reads:

"I don't know so I will just thank away. Here it goes. Thank you for Howard Stern's Radio Show ... Thank you for allowing me to grow up in ... I am thankful for such gorgeous ... I am thankful for the fact that ... I am thankful for having such a great group of friends ..."

Yet I couldn't quite figure the following one out:

"What gratitude can thank away the debt." (Here I couldn't help thinking gratitude somehow makes a creditor pardon a debtor where the former would shrug off the latter's debt out of sheer gratitude.)
