What About the Lysine Contingency…?

And Now, Serpentor Making A Fool Of Himself.

Yeeeeeaaaah…… So, Serpentor was kind of lame.

In case you don’t remember, Serpentor was the self-proclaimed emperor of the villainous Cobra faction in GI Joe.

Intended to be a replacement for the comically inept Cobra Commander, Serpentor was created from the DNA of countless great conquerors and rulers throughout history.

This had the unfortunate side-effect of giving him a strange tendency to speak almost exclusively in “commands,” leading to rampant use of the phrase “This, I Command!”

As you might’ve guessed, this could get annoying, and more than a little tedious at times:

Anyway, we should probably move on to explaining the retarded-ness of the clip at the top of this post.

Despite what you might think, the clip of Serpentor screaming “Cobra-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la!” is actually taken directly from the GI Joe movie.

I’m not kidding.

That means Serpentor’s voice actor, Richard Gautier; was asked to come into the studio, and yell “Cobra-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la!” into the microphone, most likely for a half an hour straight.

All I can say is, I hope he got paid.

As dumb as that seems, (and sounds) it’s perhaps even sadder to think that the whole “Cobra-la” thing sounds eerily like a riff on the now infamous Arabic battle cry:

A cheap laugh, but a good one nonetheless.

Anyway, you know what I mean.

I have no way of confirming my suspicions, but due to the US and Middle Eastern tensions of the day, (Sgt. Slaughter was only a few years away from his dramatic heel-turn) I’d assume this was the case.

That being said, I always thought this was really fucking stupid.

Here’s hoping you agree with me.
