Imagine if someone did this to you in real life: You’re walking down the street and bump into a three random guys who invite you to to join in on assault and robbery; offering you a one-quarter stake in everything and a very real chance at severe bodily harm, without bothering to ask for your name or qualifications.

The title “I’m sure You’ll Fit Right In” is actually a super-obscure game quote.

He says it in this sarcastic tone of voice and I still laugh when I hear it.
But how obscure can a quote be before it’s no longer a subtle reference but just obsessive fanboy wanking?
About this obscure, I’d say.
