Fans of the HBO series 'The Wire' would probably agree that the following scene is one of the best - if not THE best from the show.

But a word of caution - basically the dialogue is a litany of variations on the F-word. If you feel you would be offended by such dialogue, you may as well move on to some other blog......

What most people don't realize is that 'The Wire' was based on a Victorian novel written by little-known author Horatio Bucklesby Osgood. And this scene is almost verbatim to the original manuscript.
