  •  Major Kong should answer this... (3+ / 0-)

    ... but I'll butt in since this has been up for most of a day now.

    The tagline (as does Major Kong's nom de plume) comes from a great Kubrick film, "Dr. Strangelove: Or, How I learned to Stop Worrying and Love The Bomb". A very black, very funny comedy, written by Terry Southern, with Peter Sellers (playing multiple roles), Slim Pickens, George C. Scott (who, as General Buck Turgidson, uttered MK's tagline), Sterling Hayden, and James Earl Jones.

    Here is the IMDB entry for it. 8.6/10 stars, and a lot of great quotes. Also, listen for the names; they're priceless.

    "Gentlemen, you can't fight in here! This is the War Room."
