FF Week #2--BAH!!

If you read enough early Fantastic Four, you can't help but notice that...









...Ben Grimm says "BAH!" an awful lot.

Not enough people say "BAH!" these days...

From Fantastic Four #1-7 (1961-1962)

Humbug!

It's true. More people SHOULD say "bah". It has that quaintness and insolence that go together so well

Ben Grimm is so gloriously Ben Grimm! I want to be struck by cosmic rays so that I can be allowed to be a proper curmudgeon in peace!

This reminds me of the remarkable Ambush Bug module for the Mayfair Games DC Heroes RPG.

Among other things, it "fixed" the game's villain Motivation rules (basically Alignment), reducing them to two types of villain:

1. Villains Who Say "Bah!"
2. Villains Who Don't Say "Bah!"

"Bah" just sounds weird coming from Ben. I would expect him to say, "Aw, nuts!" or something like that.
