eat flaming death
eat flaming death /imp./ A construction popularized among
hackers by the infamous CPU Wars 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!"
