“And why would you quote this punk when you can cite the Wilde wisdom of Oscar? Although I do dig those lips...”
“Listen to me... If I hear you quoting Christopher Walken again, I will cut your head off.”

Quoting Christopher Walken is a required course at the Manhattan Institute of Walkentology, where students are trained to think, indeed, to inhabit, the personality of the great actor and wise-person.
As the founder of all three monotheistic religions, Christopher Walken has become a figure of considerable reverence throughout the Western World. Just as Confucianism, Zen Buddhism, and the philosophy of the Ninja-Pirate Assembly of God have influenced their respective cultures, Walkentology has spread its teachings of love, spiritual reflection, and getting the fuck out of my face to millions of adherents, whose numbers are growing by the day.
It is estimated that by the year 2020, virtually half the world's population will be Walkentologists, with the other half simply cowering in fear.
