Flavor text for rogue skills.

For those of you that dont know, a while back in the MoP beta a few lock talents had flavor text with them (flavor text is the yellow text that appears on the bottom of the tooltip for an item that add a certain intrigue or lore to it).

This was taken away as beta winded down (not sure why, maybe because if not everyone could have it no one could), but got me thinking....what do you think would be good/funny flavor texts for rogue skills?

Make them funny, serious, vent your rage at certain rogue mechanics through them, etc.

Things like:

Ambush: "One dagger in the dark is worth a thousand swords at dawn"

Cheat Death: "If you see the proc, its already too late"

Vanish: "If I crit vanish, will I disappear?"

Shadow Walk: "So stealthy...you cant even see or hear it working"

Vanish: "Just kidding, bend over."

Pick Lock: "It isn't quite a Mage portal, but the masses will still voice their demands."

Cheap Shot/Kidney Shot: "It's like holding someone down so you can tickle them. They can't get away, and usually just results in them laughing."

Given that shadow has an "animation" now (if thats what you want to call copy/pasting the vanish animation) I guess that quote isnt as applicable. However given that the exent of the animation is me lifting my hand in the air perhaps something like:

Shadow Walk: "Has nothing to do with shadows or walking"

Killing Spree:
"I'm afraid we're all out of killing sprees. In fact, we probably won't even be able to deliver individual killings this late in the year. Can I interest you in a series of minor injuries?"

Sap:
Using the pointy end would've taken all the fun out of it.

Rupture:
Unlike a regular sword stroke or thrust of your dagger, this technique will cause your victim to bleed.

Fan of Knives:
You love knives so much, you think everyone should have one.

Safe Fall:
Most people know how to fall without injuring themselves. You, on the other hand, are also clever enough to know how to stop falling without getting hurt.

Expose Armor: In your heyday you could undress a clothie with a single strike, but lately it seems like you've lost your touch.

Recuperate: Inject yourself with some delicious, magical, science.

Vanish: If I close my eyes I turn invisible, right?

Deadly Throw: The fine print reads: "Does not actually cause harm or death in any way."

Distract: Well, it was worth a shot.

Shadow Dance: Stop... Hammer time!
