Rambo Addend-endum

Well, you could knock me down with a feather! It seems that Rambo never had owt to do with Apollo Creed. I could have sworn that the two of them had fought in more than one flick—but I'm assured by a most reliable source that the fights with Creed occurred in flicks that are not Rambo flicks, but entirely different flicks altogether. Who in HELL woulda thunk that Sylvester Stallone has played more than one character in his career? Not I, by cracky!

I'm still skeptical, reliable source or not, so I'm investigating further, in hopes of discovering just what flicks these alleged "other" flicks might be, if they're not Rambo flicks. Meanwhile, I've withdrawn the reference to Apollo Creed (though I liked how his name scanned), and altered the tagline so that it doesn't interrupt the dramatic flow:

I whupped the Vietcong
In Vietnam;
I'm twice as strong
As Jean-Claude Van Damme.
He ain't no Rambo!
As for me—perhaps I am.

As my ear hears it, the words are pronounced Vee-yet-kong and Vee-yet-naam. Go thou and do likewise!
