    Honestly, has this section of the forums ever been done justice? Let's talk about Generals, be they real or fiction.

    2 of my favorite Generals are:
    Eugene Irwin - from The Last Castle
    Obi Wan Kenobi - from, don't play that game
    Guile - from Street Fighter

    1 General I really don't like (at least as of late):
    Motors - as in, General Motors :drunk  Dude's an asshole.

    I just re-watched Patton the other night. It runs crazy with some historical accuracy here and there, but it presents a fascinating character in American warfare, and one of my favorites. The opening monologue is still one of the best in cinema.

    General Tso, for his undeniable and generous contributions to chicken preparation.

    And General Store, for having created several very fine shopping establishments.

    My mom likes General Hospital. I think they just change the numbers on the elevators though to make it seem like it's a bigger set.

    Uhh... that's 3. However, Guile's only a Colonel.

    And i'm surprised noones made a General Grievous joke yet.

    But my favorite is General Discussion.

    yeah, I ran with that list. I intended to only have 2. But anyway, are you sure Guile isn't a General? I'm pretty sure he is.
