One dialog between Holger Krekel and Andrew Koenig
reminded me of the old Monkey Island game.
Does anybody remember?
Guybrush Threepwood fighting with the Swordmaster:
'You fight like a cow!'
'You will wear my sword like a Sish Kebab!'
"I'm shakin', I'm shakin'!"
I carelessly reduced and cutted their (absolutely
positive) dispute into a form that resembles this a bit.

Thanks for the funny message that rang this bell :-)
