my Lai may also be a reference to Lai's definition, " a lyrical, narrative poem written in octosyllabic couplets that often deals with tales of adventure and romance." Can anyone tell if the poem in the comic fits the Lai's definition? If so, then Black Hat might also be saying "I shot a man in Reno, and a bunch more in my poem", referencing the poem they're saying. ---- -- ‎Bluewin (talk) (please sign your comments with ~~~~)

Interesting idea, but unfortunately the rhymes are not octosyallbic, which means to contain eight syllables. Bbruzzo (talk) 17:06, 6 March 2016 (UTC)

The "Now, I don't mean to pry" is a reference to "The Princess Bride" (Inigo says that to Westley). 21:44, 15 February 2015 (UTC) -- ‎Idanbhk (talk) (please sign your comments with ~~~~)

Someone correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't My Lai pronounced similar to melee? Would that not prevent it from rhyming in the comic? 07:42, 22 July 2016 (UTC)
