Regular readers will recall that my eight deadly enemies dear friends over at Truth on the Market have thrown down the gauntlet in our race to win the best business law blog at the ABA top 100 law blogs of 2011. In the comment section over at their so-called "blog," I replied that:
Eight to one. Sounds like a fair fight. Luckily, “I know kung fu.”
BTW, bonus points will be awarded for spotting the derivative source of the quotation as well as the original source.
To which our friend Tung Yin replied:
“The Matrix,” after Tank downloads kung fu skills into Neo?
But isn’t the more apt (though less familiar) quote “I’ll handle this” — said by Neo to Morpheus and Trinity as an indication that he can deal with the Merovingian’s five fighters, given the N on 1 nature of the fight?
The Matrix is, of course, the original source of the line "I know kung fu." And Prof. Yin makes an apt suggestion for an alternative quote.
But what about the derivative use? Do you know what TV show (there's a hint) has now swiped the line a total of three times? Here's two more hints: It's my second favorite TV show and it's in its last season.
BTW, the evil bastards good folks at TOTM have pulled into a 72-68 lead. So if you haven't voted for PB.com yet, please go do so right now.
