Bartitsu? Reminds me dimly of a joke that I only remember the punch-line to. "First of all lady, I'm a bartender, not a barfender, second it's a martini, not a martoonie, and third, you don't have heartburn, your tit's in the ashtray."

Bartitsu? Fine I suppose if you are only dealing with rapscallions, perhaps the occasional ruffian...
But if you run afoul of hooligans you need to step up your game some. Javanese Fisticuffs perhaps. Or avoid violence altogether and use Roussaud's New Principles of Mesmerism.

I created fartitsu. A combination of eastern style martial arts, British boxing, American nipple twisting and eating at taco bell twice a day.

I think politicians should be required to settle all their differences using this method. Would cut down on the bs they spew.

BART-itsu. Is when you have five white cops holding down a brother and one of them shoots him in the back.
Then walks away from justice.
