Behind the scenes

Its name is a reference to the movie, A Christmas Story. Ralphie, having just received his new Red Ryder BB gun, takes aim at a target across the yard and mumbles, "Okay, Black Bart... now you get yours!" This itself is a reference to notorious stagecoach bandit, Charles "Black Bart" Boles.
