Eat flaming death

humour, abuse
A construction popularised among hackers by the infamous CPU Wars comic; supposedly derive from a famously turgid line in a WWII-era anti-Nazi propaganda comic that ran “Eat flaming death, non-Aryan mongrels!” or something of the sort (however, it is also reported that the Firesign Theater’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 humorously overblown expressions of hostility. “Eat flaming death, EBCDIC users!”
