We have seen the enemy, and they are ours.
We await their advance, to dispatch them with all speed and necessary force.
And you shall know it is us by our tartans and sabers. Bring a sword to a gunfight? That's the way the heroes clash -- ho, ho, ho!
Even when all hope is lost, the numbers lopsided, victory dissolving like tears in rain, we refuse to surrender, submit, yield to those who shall shackle and diminish us, minimalize and render us irrelevant.
For we are warriors in a just and noble cause, and we have only begun to fight.
Fetch my armor and pass the haggis.
