For writing?

I actually thought Garth Ennis already wrote the Old Testament.

Well, textural analysis by scholars would probably indicate he wrote those, anyway. :D

And his depiction of Jesus vs. the moneylenders would be pretty cool.

(And really, given that spread is pages 2 and 3 of a comic, with the setup being a standing OMAC being told to leave by some private security goons, Kirby would have been perfect for the abrupt violence and other craziness of the Bible.)

The depiction of Samson slaying 10,000 with the jawbone of Trump would have been epic.

David read me Patton's speech to the Third Army, and I don't know if I'm more in love with, "I don't want any messages saying 'I'm holding my position.' We're not holding a goddamned thing. We're advancing constantly and we're not interested in holding anything except the enemy's balls" or "We're going to murder those lousy Hun cocksuckers by the bushel-fucking-basket."

The book I'm reading has a fair number of mentions of Patton (since the 95th Division was attached to his Third Army), and while I don't have the book in front of me, a couple of quotes attributed to him were along the lines of (spoken to some soldiers who'd recently been in combat), "The Germans you met today are good Germans. They are good Germans because they are dead Germans, and they cannot reproduce."

Patton was never much for nuance.

You don't need an exact answer; just use something close enough - a Hun sucker proxy.

In an article on Slate about London "Basement Wars", where rich people in posh neighborhoods complain to stop their rich neighbors from building gigantic basement complexes:
“There’s a kind of polite racism going on here,” observed Roger Burrows, the professor of cities at Newcastle University who undertook the study of West London basements. “The people who have been complaining the most are what we call the merely wealthy—it’s a battle between the haves and the have-yachts. There’s an awful lot of snobbery, because these things are very vulgar.”
"Sharks do not go around challenging people to games of chance like dojo breakers."
