Huh. I thought Kung-fu attack moves were generally nouns. "Lunchbag-Stealing Monkey Attack!". Or possibly "Fist of the Monkey-Stealing Lunchbag!". But whatever.

Ouch. Pre-warning - I just realized I should apoligize to Zeke for stealing his kitten joke for a diatribe he probably isn't going to like very much.
