I am (someone), hear me (do something)

I am (someone), hear me (do something)

Modeled on the phrase "I am woman, hear me roar" from the 1972 song “I am Woman” by Helen Reddy. Either used genuinely as a phrase of empowerment for some person, or else used humorously or sarcastically to deride or poke fun at someone. The protestors gathered outside of the meat-packing plant, many carrying signs reading "I am vegan, hear me roar!" We got my dad a mug for his birthday that says, "I am your father, hear me snore!"
