“Hell, I’d piss on a spark plug if I thought it’d do any good!” — Barry Corbin as General Berenger in John Badham‘s WarGames.

My first viewing of WarGames happened 37 and 2/3 years ago, but it feels like yesterday. A split second after Corbin said this line, I immediately muttered to myself “please, please don’t put awful images in my head…a fat Air Force General pissing on a battery in somebody’s ratty back yard in Bumblefuck, Tennessee…I’m telling you I can’t stand it!”
