    It's a direct parody of the Dim Mak advertisements run by John Keehan ("Cont Dante") in the late '60s and early '70s:

    We know. Well, except for that one guy. But please don't carefully explain things that everyone who isn't retarded already knows.

    And, of course, Marvel comics ran both the legit ad and the parody, which is what makes it awesome.

    The street argument is retarded. BJJ is so much overkill for the street that its ridiculous. Unless you're the idiot that picks a fight with the high school wrestling team, barring knife or gun play, the opponent shouldn't make it past double leg + ground and pound - Osiris

    I'm a compulsive educator. It's a curse.

    Duhhhhhhhhhh Yup! And I go to court with them on Friday. Oh woe is me....etc etc.

    This paraody ad, Dragon Ball Z's Mr. Satan, Howard The Duck, all places that this persona survives imprinting itself onto a global popular culture.

    The image is far-reaching for better of for worse, it is a global urban mythology Keehan created....

    Think Billy will roll the dice in court over this one too?

    Save it on your computer, you'll be able to zoom and read it fine, even in windows default image viewer.

    Also, I thought I'd share this one... look at the crazy toe grab in the top left corner. I find it's both disturbing and hilarious. But hey, I guess if it works in a fight, why not? I guess I'd spread some dude's toes if it gives me the ufc prize money.:laughing7 But you'd probably hear about it for the rest of your carreer!

    Well, I've read that mullets are reserved for germans. Great czech mullets combined with a moustache. We non-germans must grow an afro. When the curl is at least one foot high, we can start kick our way to success!
