Worst. [Thing]. Ever. (Words, Sayings, and Slogans)

"Lemonade?"
"Worst. Roman orgy. Ever."

It's not enough to call something the "worst ever" these days; thanks to the implied periods (puntuated by pauses) popularized by The Simpsons Comic-Book Guy and writers at Television Without Pity, we can now emphasize an event's true awfulness. Handed lemonade by a perky co-ed when she expects mind-erasing shots from a girl gone wild, Veronica is none too impressed.

3.02 "My Big Fat Greek Rush Week"

"So, not only did Chip get Kojaked, someone put a Roman numeral on one of those little plastic Easter eggs and stuck it in his where-the-sun-don't-shine place. And you know where that is."

"Worst. Easter egg hunt. Ever."

Kojak was a bald detective played by Telly Savalas in the 1970s show Kojak. He had a fondness for lollipops and dark wit, and he was one of the few prominent Greek characters ever featured on a tv show. The phrase "worst [something] ever" comes from the Simpsons character Comic Book Guy, who authoritatively claims various things as the "worst __ ever," such as "worst episode ever" (which was also the name of an episode of the show). Chip winds up sans hair and with an unfortunate toy surprise in his keister due to his obnoxious past behavior, but it's pretty fair to say that there could not be a more unpleasant Easter egg hunt than the one Chip had to endure, whatever he did to deserve it.
