Rocksteady from Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles
At the top of a page of notes I took on October 27, 2000, in my high school sophomore English class, I decided to draw a terrible (awesome) picture of Rocksteady from Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Next to it, I wrote:
“He who fights & runs away lives to fight another day!”
-The Shredder, in the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles cartoon series; also used by Bebop & Rocksteady, a Warthog & a Rhino, respectively… MUTANT Rhino & Warthog, naturally.
When grading my notes later in the semester (yes, our notes were graded), my teacher wrote “? Not relevant” next the drawing. I… have absolutely no explanation for why I drew that. So let’s move on to the quote immediately following my artistic endeavor:
“You all waited too damn long.”
-My teacher, on something
I like how I was too lazy to even attribute the humorous quote to anything specific. Oh, high school.
