“I don’t know if you know this, but only the members of Emperor Ming’s court can wear the shiniest polyester. Perfect example, I’m Ming’s royal robe designer, which he says is not considered a high status. I mean, hello?! Mingo City would be blinded by a naked Ming if it weren’t for me! Yet, here I am wearing the cheap, flammable stuff. I hope that Flash Gordon guy kicks his ass.
Wait, don’t tell Ming I said that or the part about his old, wrinkly body blinding people.”
– Norma, Royal Robe Designer; Ming City, Mongo Galaxy
Flash Gordon (1980)
