* Due to a [[MemeticMutation memetically popular]] quote from Website/BashOrg, [[http://bash.org/?5775 "HAHAHA DISREGARD THAT, I SUCK COCKS"]] became a fairly popular way to retract a statement on the internet, despite the original quote being the work of a {{troll}} rather than an example of this trope.

-->'''Rollo:''' I think the whole Octopus philosophy is poison. The only aim of any and every [=McCain=] business is to downsize and halve the quality, to make enough money to acquire another business to downsize and halve the quality, to make enough money to acquire ''another'' business to downsize, etc., etc., without ever running a single one of them really well. And if anyone ever raises the question of quality, they're immediately attacked as an elitist, because at Octopus it's considered morally offensive to talk about anything but money. All so that Mr. Rod [=McCain=] can feel a little more powerful every day. That's why, instead of running this ''wonderful'' zoo properly, we've got to spoil it in order to finance his next ''mindless'' acquisition.
