* Well, if the [[ComicBook/JudgeDredd original comics]] are any indication, Mega City One is an extremely oppressive nanny/police state, in which even things such as sugar, caffeine, synthetic caffeine, comic books, and video game consoles are outlawed, and a massive black market was created around the sale of those things as a result. Better yet, the few things that ''couldn't'' be outlawed were spun into ridiculous vices; one such is "[[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Competitive_eating competitive eating]]" as they couldn't exactly ban ''food'' - this resulted in a class of people so morbidly obese they need wheels to prop up their stomachs as they walk around. The Judges' system is clearly not how a healthy and functional society is supposed to operate.

Both are methamphetamine-equivalents that screw with your perception of time. Even comes in an inhaler! Doesn't mesh with the Bethesda games, but it fits the originals just fine - and you have to admit it's rather amusing to think of junkies waging drug-fueled turf wars while high on [[LiteralMetaphor literal]] crap. Hey, put anything in your body you want - just know the rest of us are laughing at you for [[IAteWhat unknowingly]] huffing [[http://fallout.wikia.com/wiki/Jet mutant cow shit]].

** Fair point. Since it wasn't meant that way, let's rephrase: Ma-Ma has leadership skills and inhabits a world of slow-motion ultraviolence. She also started out as a prostitute. Queen Gorgo also had leadership skills and inhabited a world of slow-motion ultraviolence. She also prostituted herself at one point, for a really, really good reason, and it cost her dearly. Prostitution is connected to her motives, but is in no way connected to her ability.
