News Media Doesnt Know Tyson Stole 'Gut Like A Fish' From 'Scream'?!?!

I see that Tyson's press conference got a lot of tv time because of his comments that he'll 'Gut' his opponent 'Like A Fish'.

I havent seem any broadcaster make mention that his line isnt an original one, but one that's stolen from the film 'Scream'.

I am sure that there are other instances of someone saying "gut you like a fish" before 1996...

edit: A quick search came up with a Simpsons episode from 1990 with that phrase.

It's common knowledge a fish was never gutted before December of 1996.

I'm not sure why they would need to mention that Scream also made that reference in the past. It's a pretty common saying.

Not to mention the popular Bryan Adams song from 1983.

I guess we shouldnt forget the demented guy with the fisherman's hat in 'I know what you did the summer before the summer I finished the book Camp by Michael Eisner'.

People actually said things prior to 1996. This would be one of them.

This is the guy that beat his wife, raped a woman, and mutilated Evander Holyfield, right? Yeah, focus on his trash talk. I so hate the media.

I didn't know that line was from Scream. Of course, I've never seen that movie all the way through.

Yeah, because the media has never, ever mentioned those incidents.

I'm sure if he raped a woman while biting off an ear during the press conference, they would have mentioned it. But all the slacker did was trash talk, so that was what got reported.

BTW, on ABC news tonight when mentioning Tyson, they did mention his past actions so they didn't forget.

The question really is, Has he ever actually gutted a fish? If not then would he be able to "Gut his opponent like a fish" Correctly?

clearly, he doesn't. Not only that, but it looks like he gives up while fishing also.

I would just like to use this thread to thank Will Smith for creating the phrase "Aww, hell no!"

They also didn't realize that his famous taunt "I want to eat your children", was actually a reference to the 1980 cult classic "Cannibal Holocaust".

and thanks to "dance with the stars" we can question whether these are 3 separate incidents or are actually 3 ways of saying the same thing.

har har.

This is directly from the very odd transcript of the news conference.

Mike Tyson: ...Shit...
Billy: What?
Mike Tyson: They're gone.
Billy: [they go into the kitchen] Where the fuck are they?
Mike Tyson: I don't know Billy, but I'm hurtin!
[the phone rings]
Mike Tyson: Should I let the machine get it?
Billy: [answers it] Hello?
Sidney Prescott: Are you alone in the house?
Billy: Bitch! You bitch where the fuck are you?
Sidney Prescott: Not so fast, we're going to play a little game. It's called: Guess who just called the cops and reported your sorry motherfucking ass!
Billy: Find her you dip shit! Get up!
Mike Tyson: I can't Billy... you cut me too deep. I think I'm dying man!
[Billy gives Mike Tyson the phone]
Mike Tyson: ...Hello?
Sidney Prescott: Mike Tyson, Mike Tyson, Mike Tyson... What's your motive? Billy has one, the police are on their way, what are you going to tell them?
Mike Tyson: Peer pressure, I'm far too sensitive.
Billy: I'm going to rip you up bitch, just like your fucking mother!
Sidney Prescott: You gotta find me first you pansy ass momma's boy!
Billy: Fuck!
[hits Mike Tyson with the phone]
Mike Tyson: Ow! Fucking hit me with the phone dick!

I always thought Tyson was more of a Fried Green Tomatoes fan than a Scream fan.
