Well, in that case I might as well paint a Venom to look like Animated Blackarachnia while I'm at it. :D

The question you must ask yourselves is this:

What is the final form of the Mackie I'm painting right now? [skull]

I am no longer allowed to suggest that someone write a Gilligan's Island scenario for MLP:FiM

I am also no longer allowed to play out the Black Knight skit with mechs.
Wolf wins every fight but one, and in that one he dies, his fangs locked on the throat of his opponent.

The correct response to detecting civilian transports is not a full spread of photon torpedoes. The war crimes tribunal does not consider "at least the weren't quantum torpedoes" to be a valid defense.
Subtlety is for those who lack a bigger gun.

"Breakfast is the most important meal of the day" is not a valid explanation.

Especially if the question is "why is there an iguana in my shower?"

"Witness me!" is not a valid WoB battle cry.

Someone taking your assigned parking place even though you actually do pay for it is not grounds for smashing their windows in with a baseball bat.  Taking a can opener to their hood and stealing their hubcaps is enough.
