A wordplay that nine-year-olds thought was endlessly funny in Battle School:
quote:
"I'm guilty of being a child. And homicide, too, in some people's opinion."
"Killing Buggers was not homicide."
"No, I guess it was insecticide."

With a pleasant tingle of anticipation, she puts her eyes to the output rig. Having chosen green as the key colour, she finds herself strolling under a canopy of neuronal dendrites, a tropical brainforest.

If its ok to kill buggers because its not Homicide, its Insecticide, does that mean its legal to bomb small hotels because your committing "Inn-Side".

Don't get me started on what "Out side" would be.

Murdering the voice actors of that Pixar film with expensive pillow filling is only "Up-side down"

Shooting the actor who played Klinger would be "Farr-side".

Training hunting dogs to kill precious pollinators would be "Bee-side the Pointer"

Stop me before I pun again.....

Stupid kids- don't they know that despite any external similarities since Buggers evolved on another planet they can't possibly be insects? There are probably all sorts of physiological differences...

Killing everyone named Herbert would be simple Herbicide.

(How do you gather all the Herberts? Roundup.

I murdered a bowl of pasta for lunch. It was pestocide. Or pastacide. Either way the best part was the breadsticks.
