Why hostile wit?

Hostile = nonconformist, skeptical, exposing, scrappy, defiant, saucy, offbeat. “Hostile” like that pair of  “hostile underwear” that attacks your crotch. Not “hostile” meaning unkind, bitter or malicious. 

Witness = to be present, to affirm the truth, advocate, corroborate.

Wit = insight, common sense, and humor. The stuff worth living for.
