A construction popularised among hackers bythe infamous CPU Wars comic; supposedly derive from afamously turgid line in a WWII-era anti-Nazi propaganda comicthat ran "Eat flaming death, non-Aryan mongrels!" or somethingof the sort (however, it is also reported that the FiresignTheater's 1975 album "In The Next World, You're On Your Own"included the phrase "Eat flaming death, fascist media pigs";this may have been an influence). Used in humorouslyoverblown expressions of hostility. "Eat flaming death,EBCDIC users!"
