Earliest form of a flame that I can remember..

Slaps "Dishdog" with a trout"
Not intended for you just an example...

Anyone remember where that one was from?

I remember reading that, but that's not so much of a flame as a joke...

Dishdog is a slapped trout would be a flame.
or at least it would if it were said seriously.
