A hackneyed phrase
, found in many horror
movies. Usually spoken in low, measured tones by a villian
, when approached by a smaller, supposedly weaker opponent
. It is a veiled threat
, which implies that any action by this ill advised
smaller person will result in serious harm
In this manner:
I wouldn't try that pause if I were you.
These words are said with a mix of annoyance and menace. Almost as if the speaker of these words would rather not be "bothered" with the pending attack. The attitude is dismissive and not a little bit perturbed- imagine a German sheperd bothered by a Dachshund.
Oh please, run along.
