Excellent! I think “Holy Schneier” is far superior to the “oy gevaldik” suggested on Ed Felten’s blog earlier this year. :^)

It might be time to design a new form, the blasphemy take-down demand.

Holy Schneier, father of security, maintain our firewall rules now and in the hour of our hacking, amen.

Holy Schneier is my new phrase to chrarakterise my amazement about very complicated things that I dont understand. Like houston-salad or two-fish 😉

At some point I’ll be adding a footnote to the strip that points out how the exclamation is typically only used in situations where one has just learned something one wishes one had not.
Sorry to take your name in vain. That’s not a form of identity theft, is it? 😉

As Howard points out, it would have or should have been used for example when TJ Maxx discovered that due to bad or no implementation of encryption, a lot of credit card horses got out of the barn. Ouch!

We have been using this since long
Its new on web but not in real world 🙂
When I forget Bruce’s family name is spelled, google for “bruce security”. And this blog is the first result. So “security” can be considered as a part of full name as well. 😉

Well, it looks like it is just a variation on “Holy schneikies!” or “Holy schnikes!”

Better than a cry of “Jiffy Diffie!” or “Goto Helman”.

“Goto Helman” ?!?!
hahahah, it is hilarious, I ‘ll have to go with that.

That’s funny indeed. I wonder whether this thing will manage to break out and be used by non-security (and non-IT, non-math, etc) folk.
I was expecting your popularity to grow after the “Bruce Schneier facts” meme showed up (since Chuck Norris paved the way :-). But take a look at this: http://www.google.com/trends?q=bruce+schneier&ctab=0&geo=all&date=all&sort=0
None of the spikes on the graph is caused by the “facts”.
