With a few tweaks the "Taken" speech is great for shutting down Facebook grammar Nazis.
At this point, more people might have the Taken speech memorized than the Pledge Of Allegiance. Liam Neeson's long, detailed summary of the plot of the rest of the movie to the extremely patient sex trafficker on the other end of the phone is a touchstone of American pop culture. People love quoting it, they love hearing it, and the best part is if you change a few of the nouns you can use it to threaten people in your own life, whether they be Eastern European sex traffickers or mildly annoying cubicle mates. Here are just a few ways to integrate the Taken speech into your everyday confrontations.
For when you want to keep your coworkers from ever stealing your Cherry Cola out of the office fridge again.
For when you want to break up with your passive-aggressive long-term boyfriend.
For when you're a child of adoption and you don't want to meet your biological parents.
And best of all, for telling blowhards like Donald Trump to shut their idiot mouths on Twitter.
