While in the pharmacy getting meds, overheard a lady tell the cashier, “That may be overkill.”
My mental response was to just blurt out, “What’s overkill?”
This is random because only a select number of people would get this reference.
Back in our college days, lots of us played an RPG called Robotech. Our military squadron was called the DeathKnight squadron, and e were know for our prolific and effective use of massive amounts of ordinance to take out relatively small targets. The application of even more ordinance the larger the targets was our specialty.
Due to this tactic, our squadron motto naturally became, “What’s overkill?”. And now, whenever I hear that word, I just have to ask myself our motto.
