"Popcorn logic" refers to things that make sense when you are watching a film or TV show, but the minute you actually think about them they are completely absurd.
Eggers: Jack Bauer shot that guy 17 times through the lungs and he is still alive.
Fusto: That's popcorn logic for ya!
Added to the end of a word to suggest that the word is done without much thought and doesn't/didn't require much actual skill or effort. Derived from the Paint-By-Numbers that we all enjoyed during our childhood.
Troilus: Wow, Eggers is sure using some sweet moves on that chick Rebomblette!
Fusto: Nah, she'll see right through him - it's just nice-guy-by-numbers.
instant, easy, not well-thought out. applies to viewpoints and opinions in particular
Last night my mate Turok was spouting his flimsy, boil-in-the-bag political opinions about the war
Someone or something that is hot/ace but often overlooked.
Fusto: "That Chloe is properly Zinc, I've not really noticed her before."
Mario: "I've now realised those green shells are actually a godsend! What a zinc byproduct of killing turtles!
entertainment that fails to entertain
"Steps into Summer" is untertainment at its very finest, and will be warmly welcomed by those who watch TV with a shotgun in their mouth, trying to pluck up the courage.
(as quoted from TV critic Charlie Brooker)
A parrot man is someone who is only known for one thing. It refers to someone with a gimmick, who loses all attention when he loses his gimmick.
It is based on Hale and Pace's story of a man who regularly took his parrot to a bar and was wildly popular. One day he showed up without the parrot, to find no one cared about him.
One should be careful not to become a Parrot Man.
Eggers: Hey, why don't you whip out your harp and play us all a tune, buddy.
Feral Meryl: I'm not going to play it every time we're in da club, I don't want to become a Parrot Man.
the long-winded version of events, going into every detail
Eggers: My date with Griggletta last night went well
Fusto: Oh, tell me more about it!
Eggers: OK, do you want the short version or the dinnerbook version
