Admittedly, while the friend's response of "Not even close, brother" is a pretty badass thing to say, he should've gone the Monty Python route and responded with "I'M NOT DEAD YET!"

But hey, po-tay-to, po-tah-to.

"Well, I can't take him like THIS..."

"Isn't there something you could...you know...do?"

*THUMP*

"Ah, thanks mate. Here's your ninepence, then."

"Right-o, see you next Thursday."

Do you live in a cave?

Hulk Hogan is a U.S. professional wrestler...www.facite.com

I thought the weirdest part was that the guys shook hands and then the first guy left his injured friend to find his own way to the hospital.... WTF??? And, of course, the fact that the injured guy never even tried to press charges. He was only caught because he confessed to the police. Just all around weird, if you ask me!

/another published link - Yay!

This happened in Brisbane, AU

If so, that's adorable.

Not so much the phrase itself, but appending 'brother' when addressing someone is one of Hogans erm... mannerisms?

Awesome! You guys beat me to a Patrick Bateman reference, AND a Children of Bodom reference!!!

Enrico and prophecy, my hats off...

BUT, there's this last one:

This album is called "Aren't You Dead Yet?"

one letter different then CoB's... weird.

I've heard it as a Britishism many times before on the BBC, always caught my ear weird as well. They don't say go to THE hospital, just 'to hospital.'

Shaking hands afterwards and parting ways... very strange indeed. 'Okay, you're not dead but I gave it a good go.' 'Agreed, no hard feelings, bye.'

Enrico Palazzo: FTFA - Justice Ann Lyons, noted Keen had "gone off the rails" at a young age after joining gangs in New Zealand when he was just 13.

I was assuming that the quoted bit, above, is what goeniegoegoe was asking about when he said "There are gangs in New Zealand"? Which was what the Romper Stomper poster was posted in response to. Get it?
 
2007-08-27 07:41:49 AM  
This seems unsurprising to me. Yet, I don't think I could explain it. But I'll try.

It has to do with ethics, a sense of honor, and personal responsibility.

Something like admitting, "I'm a shiat and I screwed your girl. If I were you, I'd want to beat the crap out of me, and I understand that. So, go ahead and beat the crap out of me, and then we can continue life with no hard feelings."

It's not like it's anything new. I refer you to the concept of dueling and the reasons for it, a couple centuries back.

No this is an example of a Murdoch newspaper's grammar skills.

/btw Russell Crowe (Romper Stomper) is also NZ Born.

Dueling was on equal grounds at a mutually agreed prearranged time, not being taken by surpise with a knife to the neck and a rock to the head...

GIS for New Zealand Gangs

www.police.govt.nz

Guess they have a larger problem with Black Power gangs there...
New Zealand Gangs
Mongrel Mob, Black Power and Nomad Gangs are the prominent New Zealand gangs. Membership is dominated by Pacific Island and Maori people. They often wear distinctive patches and other gang paraphernalia, and facial and body tattoos are a common feature. These gangs have been involved in serious violence, selling and distributing drugs, possessing firearms and offensive weapons, and using intimidation and threatening tactics in pursuit of their criminal activities.

I think you missed the part in TFA where they both hopped over a wall into an abandoned prison together to do this.

And if you think dueling was on equal grounds, you may have missed some more parts...

The proper Monty Python reference would be "The death of Mary queen of scotts" not bring out your dead

Assasin1: Are you Mary, Queen of Scots?
Mary: I am.
-beating ensues for 1 minute, then stops-
Assasin1 to Assasin2: I think she's dead.
Mary: No I'm not
-beating resumes-

from what I understand they say "...in the jail" we say "...in jail," and they say "...in hospital" and we say "...in the hospital." All-around confusing to me.
