Bah!!

This is the season of brotherhood and giving? I say bah! That's right, I am saying the actual word "bah."

It use to be that word was quite common. Us super-villains said it all the time. Now it's fallen into disfavor, and I say that is a shame. There really are few words that can so nicely sum up a whole host of emotions. "Bah" could literally be the most useful phrase in a villain's lexicon.

"You're finished, Red Skull!" blathers Captain America.

"Bah!" the Skull cleverly retorts.

Basically what he is saying there is really - "You are full of crap, American dog! You can never triumph over my Nazi superiority!" But he is doing it in a much more succinct, to the point and emotionally expressive way.

"Doom, you can't use that laser! Think of all the innocent people who will be killed!" whines Reed Richards.

"Bah!" replies Doom.

With that one word, Doom is telling Richards that he is a pathetic alfalfa-eating bleeding-heart liberal who has no appreciation for the significance of science and destiny. And Doom is also saying that he can do whatever he wants so stop bothering him, panty-waist.

Without a doubt, this word can -

"Hey Mags!"

"How dare you disturb me, Toad?! Can't you see that I'm in the middle of something important here?"

"But we all chipped in and got you a present!"

"Really? Well let's see . . what a pathetic wrapping job . . hmm . . socks? You mean to say that with the entire Brotherhood of Evil Mutants here and all you could get was socks? Well I just have one thing to say to you, Toad. Bah!!"
