"All right, you primitive screw-heads, listen up! See this? This… is my boomstick! It’s a twelve-gauge, double-barrelled Remington. S-Mart’s top of the line. You can find this in the sporting goods department. That’s right, this sweet baby was made in Grand Rapids, Michigan. Retails for about $109.95. It’s got a walnut stock, cobalt-blue steel, and a hair trigger. That’s right. Shop smart. Shop S-Mart. You got that?"
