Insult Swordfighting - The FSM League

Postby Kinetic on Sat Oct 04, 2008 12:06 am

First of all, YARRGH!

I am astonished upon sailing into these boards and not detecting the presence of every pirates way of proving oneself - The Insult Swordfighting. You scalliwags should be firing insults and clever comments at each other like a pirate ship that has just encountered a rich governor at sea.

In Monkey Island, Insult Swordfighting consists of a series of Call and Response exchanges, in which an insult must be countered with a witty retort. Should the responder counter with an appropriate retort, they win the right to call the next insult; fail to respond, and the caller gains an advantage. Win enough of these exchanges, and the duel is won.
The basic rules, as put forth by Him :fsm: :
1)Yarr.. when one pirate insults thee, your reply should be clever enough to silence his tongue. (MI1)
2)The most noble of pirates, sworn prophets of Him :fsm: finishes the retort with a rhyme, further degrading their opponent. (MI3)
3)When ye win a battle, seize your adversary's booty. Head over to Kenny Falmouth's cannon outlet to get the Level 7 Destructomatic T-47 with Autoloader and Fax Modem
4)The victorious pirate may present a new insult, or pass it on to his matey.
5)If no pirate claims victory within 24 hours, thus falling prey to the insult, a new pirate may step up to the line and present their insult.

So in the name of Him :fsm: , I hereby declare the FSM League of Insult Swordfighting officially opened!


To get things started, I present the basic insult as taught by Captain Smirk:

You fight like a cow.

The thin line between genius and insanity is less of a border than a union.

"Science can purify religion from error and superstition; religion can purify science from idolatry and false absolutes. Each can draw the other into a wider world, a world in which both can flourish."

Reality is merely an illusion, albeit a very persistent one.

The 48 hours has passed and seeing as the fearsome Zankou 2.0 did not insult me back, I will continue:

I hope you have a boat ready for a quick escape!
