"Nah. Just making sure the Diamond Dogs didn't decide a night raid was a good idea. Huh. These guys are easy to alliterate with."

"Excuse me?!? Ditching a diamond for a dumb disguise makes you dumber than it!"
James, Pokémon anime

Noah: But why bother stocking the lake with sharks? Wouldn’t it have been a lot less labor to just let a luckless leaper live with the likelihood of leaving the land of the living as a light lunch for those allegedly legendarily large Leech Lake lampreys? Oh, silly me, it’s not like they’re actually real, LOL.
Izzy (with a wink): Now look, you lame little loser, I’ll allow that I like to let loose a long alliterative line as well as anyone, but just because this is supposed to be a kid’s show doesn’t mean we need to turn it into a Dr. Seuss routine. But if Lady Luck likes you, and you live through the ‘life in the balance’ leap and Leech Lake’s legendary lampreys don’t lunch all your scarlet life liquid and lap up the last of your lymph, you’ll laugh last, ‘cause I’ll let you alliterate as long as you like.”

Chris: Okay, bro and bra, it’s not like I wouldn’t love to listen to your little alliter-off, but we’re on a schedule.
—alliteration "duel" from The Legend of Total Drama Island (boldface added)

Man: But what about us atheists? Why should we have to listen to that sectarian turmoil?
Wife: You're a lapsed atheist, dear.
Man: The principle's the same! The Mohammedans don't come around here waving bells at us! We don't get Buddhists playing bagpipes in our bathrooms! Or Hindus harmonizing in the halls! The Shintoists don't come around shattering sheet glass in the shithouse, shouting slogans and—
Wife: Alright! Don't practice your alliteration on me!
Michael Palin and Terry Jones in Monty Python's "Bells" sketch

BAM! TO BEHOLD, A PUBLIC BULLETIN BOARD, BUILT OF BOTH BRILLIANCE AND BARBARITY BY BASTARDS WITH BONERS. THIS BASTION, NO MERE BULWARK OF BOREDOM, IS A BRUTAL BARRAGE OF BLISTERING BULLSHIT, BARELY BENEVOLENT... BUT BEHIND THE BIGOTRY AND BOOBS, BEYOND THE BITTER BROADCASTS OF BRAGGING BUFFOONS: HERE BE THE BODY POLITIC. A BROTHERHOOD OF BLASPHEMY, BLESSED WITH MORE BALLS THAN BRAINS, BATTLING THE BLAND, THE BOGUS, THE BENIGN. BEDLAM? BRING IT ON. BUT I BABBLE... BETTER TO BE BRIEF. YOU MAY CALL ME /b/.
4chan pays homage.

"Sickly, sinful, spectacles stand, shuffle, shamble and saunter shamelessly in mine scandalized sight! I suggest a solution... Surely such sedition should sour and succumb to Sigvald - the salacious, scandalous and sensational servant of Slaanesh! Son of Succubi, scion of sordid acts and slayer of squalid serfs!

See how I stroll, stride, swagger and swirl, spin, and slash and stab at stupid, senseless scum! Soon they shall swoon, shall seek solace and death from sundry torments wrought on them by my strategic, severing, scintillating shower of shimmering strikes!

Send for the sword - summon Sliverslash!"

God wants a relationship, not a religion. He reveals the record of my wrongs. And I recognize my need for him, and I repent, and then I rejoice! because Jesus came to reconcile us to God. And whoever receives him is rescued! and resurrected when he dies. And He shall give us the RE and we shall become E Rs. We will be brothers and sister. Hopers and believers. Lovers and. . . fighters. We will receive our eternal reward. And all that was lost, shall be restored! in his eternal realm.

Delighting as it is that the drought is dying down, doing Destiny drained your debonair delegate. Dominant developers delay for a dogs age, then deliver a desperately drab discharge and dare to describe it as the due destination for depictions of destruction. Dammit, I don't desire to designate devotion to drudges as dull as dishwater so I'm declaring a downloadables day derived directly from discovering D4: Dark Dreams Don't Die!

Jago: You mean to say the celestial Chang was involved in all these Machiavellian machinations?
Doctor: Yes, up to his epicanthic eyebrows.
Doctor Who, "The Talons of Weng-Chiang"

Pitiful people prepare, plead plentifully plentiful platitude phenomenal patriot pounds, poundingly perverse puppets; pulping, pleasantly, putrid pasties.
