eat flaming death
Jump to user comments
A construction popularised among hackers by the infamous CPUWars comic; supposedly derive from a famously turgid line in
a WWII-era anti-Nazi propaganda comic that ran "Eat flaming
death, non-Aryan mongrels!" or something of the sort (however,
it is also reported that the Firesign Theater's 1975 album "In
The Next World, You're On Your Own" included the phrase "Eat
flaming death, fascist media pigs"; this may have been an
influence). Used in humorously overblown expressions of
hostility. "Eat flaming death, EBCDIC users!"
