“It’s clobberin’ time!”  “Hulk smash!”  ” I’m a real piece of work, mate. Ask anybody…”  Pop culture is full of amazing fightin’ words, pre-fight one-liners and general boasting.   (Even Batman has one: “Some days you can’t get rid of a bomb!”)  Maybe it’s the wrestling fan in me, but I always like when a character verbally demoralizes someone before the big climactic fight sequence, leading to today’s verbose query…

The MS-QOTD (pronounced, as always, “misquoted”) favors Mal Reynolds’s “I swear on my pretty floral Bonnet, I will end you,” asking: When it comes to Fightin’ Words, who’s badass boast would you steal for yourself?

Once upon a time, there was a young nerd from the Midwest, who loved Matter-Eater Lad and the McKenzie Brothers... If pop culture were a maze, Matthew would be the Minotaur at its center. Were it a mall, he'd be the Food Court. Were it a parking lot, he’d be the distant Cart Corral where the weird kids gather to smoke, but that’s not important right now... Matthew enjoys body surfing (so long as the bodies are fresh), writing in the third person, and dark-eyed women. Amongst his weaponry are such diverse elements as: Fear! Surprise! Ruthless efficiency! An almost fanatical devotion to pop culture!

And a nice red uniform.
