Tropers / The Dire Flamingohawkrobin

“All comedy is theory until somebody laughs at it.”
“You’re sitting on your parents’ floor, playing air hockey against yourself, in a pirate hat, pyjama pants and no shirt. And you’re calling me a loser?”
— The The Dire Flamingohawkrobin

I'm not a major contributor to TV Tropes, although I chime in from time to time. I created the pages for Uncle Buck and Scenes From A Multiverse because it was simply criminal that such things did not exist. My absolute favourite movie of all time is Mad Max: Fury Road and my most beloved TV shows are Star Trek: Deep Space Nine favourite episodes:  and Community favourite episodes: . My all-time favourite book series is The Dresden Files (especially Dead Beat and Skin Game), and The Adventures of Dr. McNinja is the greatest comic ever created.

I love movies, but I guess I wouldn’t be here if I didn’t. Still getting around to some of the classics like The Godfather, thanks to my strict religious upbringing. I also spend a lot of time talking about superheroes for a guy who doesn’t really read comic books. In my spare time I like to play Dungeons & Dragons and Big Eyes, Small Mouth, usually as a Game Master. (Being an aspiring writer helps.) I mainly write original fantasy/sci-fi, but I have an insatiable taste for parody as well.

Colin Mochrie is my spirit animal.

Physically, I'm big and hairy and nothing fits me: gloves, pants, shoes, hats… but I’m a big ol’ teddy bear, despite my best efforts to make the people of Earth fear me. Just don’t leave me alone with your kids! I am afraid of them.

Henshaw: You don’t know me! I am 317 years old, I can wear any face I choose, I speak languages your mouth can’t even form! You know nothing about me!!

Bane: Oh, you think the darkness is your ally, but you merely adopted the dark. I was born in it, moulded by it. I didn’t see the light until I was already a man; by then, it was nothing to me but blinding! The shadows betray you, because they belong to me.

The Mandarin: True story about fortune cookies: They look Chinese. They sound Chinese. But they're actually an American invention, which is why they're hollow, full of lies, and leave a bad taste in the mouth.

Epicurus: Is God willing to prevent evil, but not able? Then he is not omnipotent. Is he able, but not willing? Then he is malevolent. Is he both able and willing? Then whence cometh evil? Is he neither able nor willing? Then why call him God?

Stacker Pentecost: I’ve never believed in the end times. We are mankind. Our footprints are on the moon. When the last trumpet sounds and the Beast rises from the pit—we will kill it.

Sam Vimes: If you have to look along the shaft of an arrow from the wrong end, if a man has you entirely at his mercy, then hope like hell that man is an evil man. Because the evil like power, power over people, and they want to see you in fear. They want you to know you’re going to die. So they’ll talk. They’ll gloat. They’ll watch you squirm. They’ll put off the moment of murder like another man will put off a good cigar. So hope like hell your captor is an evil man. A good man will kill you with hardly a word.

Marconi: Every living being has but one need: power. Power over other living things. You need it to grow, to eat, to reproduce. And cruelty is the ultimate expression of power. To impose needless, extreme suffering and humiliation on another. It is the purest demonstration of strength. Toddlers learn it in the nursery. Therefore every organism, from the microbe up, wears its cruelty as a badge to mark its upward progress. Prey must be subdued, competition must be starved, enemies must be wiped out. One would thus assume that we find the same among the gods, only more-so. That at each level of the heavens we find higher and higher levels of greed, brutality and mindless spite. How else could they have become gods?
     Quotes to LOL by 
Wallace Shawn: The life of an actor can be very enviable. If the phone rings and somebody says, “I see you as the leader of a group of aliens with enormous heads”, I think that’s fantastic.

Winston Churchill: I like pigs. Dogs look up to us. Cats look down on us. Pigs treat us as equals.

Spock: If I were human, I believe my response would be… “Go to Hell.” If I were human.

McCoy: You mean I’ve got to die to discuss your thoughts on death?
Spock: Excuse me, doctor; I am receiving several distress calls.

Natasha: He killed eighty people in two days.
Thor: He’s adopted.

Granny Weatherwax: Things that try to look like things often do look more like things than things. Well-known fact.

And there’s a couple of little kiddies in the pantry, and men without heads all over the place, and someone screaming under the sink, and there’s this little hairy man wandering around looking lost and everything. It’s not right.

Pirate: Well ye have to show ’em wot a good doctor ye arrrrr!
Dr. McNinja: What, are you going to let me perform surgery on you in front of them? They won’t like that. Well, Dad will, up until I’m done with the scalpel. Then he’ll realize that I’m not just cutting up some pirate, and get pissed and probably start punching both of us.

Dan McNinja: Here. I’ll pour you a Molson. It’s got a higher alcohol content than most American beers. And maybe that will help sterilize all those cuts on your face.
Ninja Drug Punk: Uh, what cuts, my man?
Dan: [smashes the beer mug across the punk’s face] I have no idea.

Dan McNinja: This is pretty easy, kids. Are you really on the ninja drug? You sure you’re not on PCP? [hits punk with barstool] Hmm… no. If you were on PCP, you’d probably try to eat the barstool that hit you. Because you’d think it was Lucifer, and if you could eat it, you’d have all the strength he just hit you with, and then you could beat me. You would not be vomiting now. Come on, it wasn’t that hard. That’s gross. [Beat] And don’t cry.

Natalie: Oh my god. You’re the Prince of Darkness.

Natalie: No, I can picture the Prince of Darkness vacuuming the ceiling, to trick us! He’s very tricky.
Monk: Stop calling me the Prince of Darkness! That’s how rumours get started.

Lillian Kaushtupper: You’ll say “Who’s that old woman in the mirror?” Then she’ll punch you in the face and say, “This isn’t a mirror. It’s an open window.” What were we talking about?

Kimmy: I don’t wanna go, Titus!
Titus: Think of the greater good, girl! You think the reverend Martin Luther King wanted to wear a bikini and put on angel wings and gyrate on top of the Gay Pride float? FOOP! I’m mixin’ up my struggles!

Titus: Girl, I went to public school in Mississippi. They told us dinosaurs went extinct because an asteroid turned them gay!

Kimmy: Because that’s what women do. We eat a bag of dirt, pass it in a kiddy pool, and move on.
Jacqueline: I hope that’s a metaphor.
Kimmy: It’s not. We needed the iron.

Dave Barry: In fact, when you get right down to it, almost every explanation Man came up with for anything until about 1926 was stupid.

Ryan: And what sound does an arctic tern make?
Colin: (beat) BAWKSTREETBOYS!

Bubs: Don’t you talk to me!

The Joker: Tell me, my friend. Have you ever danced with the Devil in the pale moonlight?
Green Goblin: Yeah. He told me you’re gay.

Louis C.K.: I’m not gonna fuck a kid. I wouldn’t do that. (Beat) …maybe a dead kid. Who are you hurting? He’s dead! Who are you hurting? I’m not saying I would kill a kid and fuck him, I’m saying that if I found a dead kid in a field, and it wasn’t raining, I might take a shot, I don't know.

Seanbaby: Communicating with MMO players is like trying to speak sign language through a hole in a bathroom wall: Everyone on the other side of it is confused, is angry, or only came here to suck.

Seanbaby: Publicly strapping an inflatable woman to your crotch is what’s known in the penis community as a “retirement ceremony”. This is a costume for a man who knows exactly how long to microwave a melon to make it feel like a human vagina. Buddhists believe that whenever a plastic bag suffocates a baby, its punishment is to come back as the lower half of a Down for the Count costume.

Seanbaby: You’re dressed as a pun only child pornographers and Family Circus fans would enjoy. That’s officially the worst Venn diagram a person can be in the center of, and you’re trying to entertain that person? Fuck you, Happy Camper.

Riq IV: Earth Rick C-137! The Council of Ricks sentences you to the Machine of Unspeakable Doom, which swaps your conscious and unconscious minds, rendering your fantasies pointless while everything you’ve known becomes impossible to grasp! Also every ten seconds it stabs your balls.

War Doctor: Oh, the pointing again. It’s a screwdriver! What are you going to do, assemble a cabinet at them?

Commander Badass: Does it embarrass you at all that you just measured yer success with women by how much gay porn they’ve made outta you an’ yer brother?

Duncan: I’m a professor! You can’t talk to me that way!

The Wary Pooter Series

  • Wary Pooter and the Phenomenal Stench — Wary is taken away from a life of systematic child abuse and placed into an arguably more hazardous environment: Hogsnorts, the most dangerous school in the entire world. With his newfound friends Wrong Wheezy and Yerwhiny Ginger, he finds that learning takes a back seat to merely surviving (and finding the source of the mysterious smell that seems to permeate the school).
  • Wary Pooter and the Chamber of Sewage — Wary and friends wonder why in the hell Hogsnorts has four houses—Drippindork, Ravingclod, Shufflestuff and Slickerthan—when Slickerthan is so obviously evil. Shit gets real when someone opens the secret, evil chamber left behind by Slickerthan’s oddly toilet-obsessed founder.
  • Wary Pooter and the Picnicker of Asskaboom — The Ministry of Magic can’t figure out why inmates of their impregnable maximum-security wizard prison, Asskaboom (which is guarded by the absent-minded Dummentals), keep wandering off. Wary meets his sketchy “uncle” Serious Plaque, Wrong regrets changing clothes in front of his pet rat, and Yerwhiny gets timey-wimey.
  • Wary Pooter and the Hormones on Fire — When Hogsnorts hosts the Try-Not-to-Die Tournament against Wurmstrangle and Boobatons, Wary discovers he likes Asian chicks, Wrong and Yerwhiny desperately try to escape the adolescent sexual tension strangling them both, and some guy named Farty Crotch kills Edward with the Really Stupid Plot Twist spell.
  • Wary Pooter and the Odour of the Penis — Wary meets a dippy hippy chick named Tuna Lovewood and finally gets to second base with Sho Thang. He spends the rest of his school year being a whiny nuisance to everyone around him. Oh, also the Dark Lord Moldywart is back and some people die. But more importantly, Harry is sad.
