[url]http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,65361,00.html[/url] FOX News is giving us "The Ralphie Treatment"* once again: [u]It's Easy to be a Sniper, Experts Say[/u][puke] [i]Several Web sites also provide tips on what types of bullets and guns could be used by snipers, along with advice on the best shooting techniques.[/i] [size=1]*"The Ralphie Treatment" is a reference to what Tony Soprano's sister was doing to Ralphie in bed. It is a term I stole from reading an article on ESPN.com 'Page 2'. I am currently in the process of using it as often as I can in every day conversation. I expect this phrase to last at least two years before people start complaining that it's "lame" or "gay".[/size=1]

I actually thought that this particular article was not totaly inflamitory to our side. It described how most of these schools require backround checks and that this guy isn't really a sniper or skilled at all. I mean geez, I can shoot beter then that without using a scope at 100 yards.

Uh [b]Dolomite[/b], isn't "what Tony Soprano's sister was doing to Ralphie in bed" actually gay?!? [;)] I do believe I will start spreading the phrase myself, if you don't mind. ByteTheBullet (-:

True. True. But "gay" has many meanings. It can mean "Happy", or as is often the case when talking to a young person, "gay" refers to their disdain at being unable to understand a concept - as in "Chemistry is gay".

I thought the "Ralphie Treatment" was named for the way Chief Wiggums (Simpson's cartoon character) oversimplifies explanations to his incredibly naive and dumb kid, Ralphie. Guess it works on several levels!
