A line made famous by flash animation veteran, Egoraptor
, in his spoof of the game Metal Gear Solid
, "Metal Gear Awesome
". This is uttered aloud, by Vulcan Raven
, referring to the fact that Snakes have no arms, and since Revolver Ocelot
gets his arm cut off, it symbolses that he is going to be the next snake, making a cryptic metaphor. This exclamation can also be used by standing silently behind a complete stranger and pointing at them, and waiting for them to turn around, and when they do, shouting "CRYPTIC METAPHOR." And walking away without further comment.
1. Snake: Oh, gee whiz, I hope a tank isn't gonna totally come outta nowhere and OWN me.
*tank shoots snake*
Snake: YOU KNOW... SERIOUSLY... I'M GETTING A LITTLE FUCKING PISSED OFF!!!
Meryl: Hey, Snake, a tank is gonna totally...
Snake: SHUT UP!!
Raven: CRYPTIC METAPHOR.
Snake: Do you seriously think this is fucking fair?
Raven: ...Just throw grenades at me.
Raven *laughs* I gave him more than a raven could hunt for in the night.
Raven: The snake prowls feircely, but cannot scratch his back, for as the sioux people are aware of, snakes have no arms with which to scratch their back.
Ocelot: ...Shut up.
Raven: The Raven on my head thirsts for his blood!
Raven's tattoo: DAMN RIGHT, NIGGA
2. Mungo: So what are you doing this weekend?
Zodiac: CRYPTIC METAPHOR!!!
Mungo: Cheapass! You did that last week!
