In the latest episode of Dead Ringers, in a sketch parodying the Line of Duty, the Queen says (at about 1:50):

One is here to shoot grouse and kick ass, and one is all out of grouse.

The only reference familiar to me is the beginning of Duke Nukem 3D, where Duke says:

It's time to kick ass and chew bubble gum, and I am all out of gum.

I wonder whether there’s an earlier famous precedent of this phrase, or whether we can safely say that quotes from computer games have now established themselves in the public culture?
