Spread

The quote has long been used in comments sections to express extreme distaste for something. For example, on June 29th, 2007, a commenter in the local British news website The Register[1] used it in response to an article about furries (shown below).


Mhmmm... "Many people feel their body doesn't match their real self," he says "for some they may feel too fat, for some they are the wrong gender. Furries are reconciling the discrepancy between the animal self inside and the physical body they were born with." Yet another way for those with social/physical/mental problems to avoid the real world and hide behind a fursuit and become something they're not... Kill it with fire, it's the only way.

The quote is usually used as a forum weapon to convey that person's disgust with something that they wish to unsee This is often expressed via various image macros and demotivational posters usually depicting people shooting flamethrowers or other weapons. The quote has been applied to several GIFs of pop culture characters shooting fire (examples shown below).
