Maximus Ridiculous

While chatting with Shamik about his incredible desire to heckle a friend's email I wrote: On my command, unleash heckle. A sort of oblique reference to Russell Crowe in Gladiator: On my command, unleash hell.

So after Shamik admits it's a reference with which he is unfamiliar I decide to translate it for the MIT-inclined: On my command prompt, unleash DOS.

My pride at coming up with this little joke reminds me of a fitting Modest Mouse lyric, one that seems to apply to the situation-- "You should be ashamed to be so proud of what you've done."
