“This is how I deal with X” is a catchphrase that is often associated with an image of Arnold Schwarzenegger (John Matrix) surrounded by flames holding a M202A1 FLASH rocket launcher as seen in the 1985 American film “Commando”. Red bloody text appears on the original picture (in the typical “meme fashion”: on top and bottom) and X refers to some unpleasant thing/event/person/etc. that is dealt with by using a rocket launcher. White Impact font appears on reproductions of the meme from Tumblr submissions/memegenerator.
