when your friend is at your house taking a duce and you burst into the bathroom holding a water bottle-size object and yell REIGN OF TERROR!!! and then start beating him with said object.
alternate phrases that can be said when entering the bathroom are: "rent's due", "time's up" or "this is my house, bitch".
Jeff's been in the bathroom for like, twenty minutes now. I'm gonna unleash a Reign of Terror
