It is known that the gravest insult you can give to a vampire is "Chocula." However, this word was only coined in 1971 with the release of Count Chocula cereal. Prior to this year, it would have been impossible to employ the slur.

Only one Belmont is known to have lived after 1971: Julius Belmont, the one who finally defeated Dracula for good. I posit that this is not a coincidence. Julius called Dracula a Chocula, and it fucking killed him.

before the invention of canning, they would make whoop-ass by gathering an assortment of leftover beatings, grinding them, salting them heavily, and stuffing them into pig's intestines or fish, then packing them tightly into an oak barrel and burying them in the cold earth to ferment for 18 months. opening up a cask of whoop-ass was a community event

Look, that's just how it is. I don't make the rules. I don't even know what the rules are. I'm pretty sure I follow the rules though. To be honest I'm a little bit vague on what rules even are, as a concept.

Using "space" as an intensifier. For instance, suppose you need to express bewilderment, and a regular old "what the fuck" just isn't strong enough. You could instead say "what the space fuck"

anybody here NOT know about timed hits?
