On May 28, 2016, a three-year-old boy climbed into a gorilla enclosure at the Cincinnati Zoo and Botanical Garden and was grabbed and dragged by Harambe, a 17-year-old Western lowland gorilla. Fearing for the boy's life, a zoo worker shot and killed Harambe. And then the murders began.

That….is actually a rather accurate way to describe how the internet completely overreacted. :mellow:

Y'know, I can't help but wonder how adding "And then the murders began" to the LAST sentence of a book would look. :P

Hurm….. :ph34r: 

"As Harry looked at her, he lowered his hand absentmindedly and touched the lightning scar on his forehead. 
"'I know he will.' 
"The scar had not pained Harry for nineteen years. All was well.
"And then the murders began." 

Wow. Is that an improvement on the Deathly Hallows epilogue or what. :ph34r:

There are no beginnings or endings to the Wheel of Time. But it was an ending. And then the murders began.

"What is it we value? Innovation. Originality. Novelty. But most importantly...timeliness. I fear you may be too late, my confused, unfortunate friend." And then the murders began.

I'm surprised no one did this one yet:

"I've seen Steelheart bleed. And then the murders began." That's...the whole story, basically.

From The Edge of the Dark Sea of Darkness by Andrew Peterson:

"The old stories tell that when the first person woke up on the first morning in the world where this tale takes place, he yawned, stretched, and said to the first thing he saw, 'Well, here we are.' And then the murders began."

The War of the Worlds:

"No one would have believed in the last years of the nineteenth century that this world was being watched keenly and closely by intelligences greater than man's and yet as mortal as his own; that as men busied themselves about their various concerns they were scrutinised and studied, perhaps almost as narrowly as a man with a microscope might scrutinise the transient creatures that swarm and multiply in a drop of water. And then the murders began."

The Time Machine:

"The Time Traveller (for so it will be convenient to speak of him) was expounding a recondite matter to us. And then the murders began."

Song lyrics:

"The meek shall inherit the earth! And then the murders began..." 2112 by Rush. Actually makes sense in context with the rest of the song.

"Finally the hills are without eyes, They are tired of painting a dead man`s face red, With their own blood. And then the murders began." Bye Bye Beautiful by Nightwish

"The kisses of the sun - Were sweet I didn't blink
I let it in my eyes - Like an exotic drink
The radio playing songs - That I have never heard
I don't know what to say - Oh not another word

And then the murders began" Around the World by ATC

"The night was black, without a moon, the air was thick and still. And then the murders began" Witch Hunt by Rush

"Folks, here's a story 'bout Minnie the Moocher
She was a red-hot hoochie-coocher
She was the roughest, toughest frail
And then the murders began" Minnie the Moocher by Cab Calloway

And, my personal favourite,

"Immi daga uimpi geneta,
Lana beððos et' iouintutos
Blatus ceti, cantla carami
And then the murders began" Omnos by Eluveitie (sorry I couldn't translate the last line)

He who saw everything in the broad-boned earth, and knew what was to be known
Who had experienced what there was, and had become familiar with all things
He, to whom wisdom clung like a cloak, and who dwelt together with the Existence of Harmony
He who knew the secret of things and laid them bare. And then the murders began.

- Not the translation I'm familiar with, but hey: Gilgamesh.

Reminds me of a different version of that song...
"Bananas in pajamas are coming down the stairs. With a shotgun, and a knife, to kill the teddy bears."
