Praise The Lord is a mysterious phrase that hardly anyone, but Rambo seems to understand. There are those who speak Greek who say otherwise, but more on that later. Most modern theologians agree it originated from straight from God's mouth, but something was lost in the translation.

In 1914, biblical scholars hit upon an obsure phrase, used by the Hebrews in the Old Testament when battling people not chosen by God, was randomly and accurately retranslated as "Pass The Ammunition. The Prophet Saul was known to utter the phrase in jest during drinking binges between battles. Archbishop Rambo of New Caledonia was the first to use the entire idea of Praising the Lord before passing the ammunition during the famous Battle of Roquefort Dressing. The strategy proved successful in pushing the Germans back, and is credited with winning the war.

Rambo later when on to form the NRA and fight in the Vietnam conflict, after it was long over. Nobody knows what it originally meant, except for people who speak Greek, but none of them are brave enough to stand up to Rambo and tell him that he is wrong.

Weirdos and hypocrites who take the Bible literally will sometimes say, "Praise the Lord" to signal displeasure with the bahaviour of a peer. Christian Fundamentalists into BDSM, fun, drugs, fornication, or other sins are thus warned by their congregation to stop their vile behavior this instant, or else.
