Pah! Their kung-fu's no good. Everyone knows the only real martial art technique that really matters is '7 Guinness 2x4 swinging.' Everything else just wants to be that cool.

So, essentially, they want the internet to apologize? Good luck with that one!

So the whole of China's Shaolin monk's are crying over the comments of 1 asshat. Is that the faint sound of a whine that I hear?

I say if the accuser can snatch a pebble from the hand of the monk's lawyer, the story is true.

That would be a close match, but I think I'd have to give the edge to the Shaolin monks. After all, they are the ones who produced (Quai Chang) Caine and nobody but Bruce Lee could have beaten him.

I hope he brings a few billion rounds, one clip will not cut it for sure.
