The equipment used to perform mammograms. Some women have likened it to a tire running over their boobs, and having them squeezed into a box-shape thingy...
WOMAN: "It's that time of the year again... gotta go to the boob crusher..."
Jafar's parrot, from Disney's animated feature film "Aladdin." His voice was acted by Gilbert Gottfried.
"I can't take it anymore!"
A catchy portmanteau of "hair" and "therapy", used in advertising Sunsilk shampoos and conditioners. Unilever Brands, distributor of Sunsilk products, actually trademarked this word.
"Sunsilk. Get Hairapy!"
A telephone call received (usually) in the small hours of the morning, usually bearing bad news about a close friend or family member -- most of the time, either they have died, are near death, and/or were involved in a terrible accident.
You better hope you never get "the call"......
An animation company, which began in France, before opening up shop in the USA. At the end of some of their shows, a kid has pronounced it as "dick" before, but now, it is pronounced "deek," for obvious reasons (and the not-so-obvious reason of its French origin.)
Known for cartoons such as "Sonic the Hedgehog," "Inspector Gadget," and "Sabrina: The Animated Series."
Many people did not know this (or just assumed it meant the obvious double entendre`,) but DIC has been confirmed to stand for <b>"Dissemination, Information et Communication."</b>
The company thrives today, and an updated logo which says "The Incredible World of DIC" is their trade dress. Hmm, do I see an innuendo here? ;-)
The company has heavily cut foreign anime, for American audiences... amn, what DICks!
This is the most exciting pricing game on The Price is Right
. The game debuted in 1975, and is played about once a month.
In this game, contestants have the chance to win a SPECTACULAR prize, ranging in price from $50,000 to $80,000+ nowadays, like a sports car, a luxury yacht, or a motorhome.
The game is played by guessing the correct hundreds digit in a three-digit prize, a four-digit prize, and then the five-digit prize. (If they play this game on a Million Dollar Spectacular, it's SIX digits!)
Any incorrect guess along the way ends the game, but the contestant gets to keep any prizes they correctly priced.
In the rare event that they win the Really Big Prize, they (usually) become one of the biggest winners in the history of The Price is Right.
(Example based on an actual playing of the game in November 2003)
First, the player is shown the price of a two-digit grocery item; let's say it was a package of erasers, worth 92 cents.
The first prize along the way is almost always a gimme... say, a juicer. $_49 is displayed...
is it the 9 or the 2? It's obviously the 2, because the numbers NEVER repeat themselves in the first two prize's prices. Plus, there probably aren't any consumer juicers worth over $900 out there.
Let's say prize #2 is an air hockey table. $3_95 is seen...
is it the 2, the 4, or the 9?
The 9 is ruled out, since it's a repeating digit. That leaves a 50.50 shot... and it depends on luck, most of the time. In this particular playing, the correct answer was 4.
And finally, there's the big prize at the end.... in this case, a new motorhome! The audience is hushed as the model wheels the price podium out... $79_68.
Now, the contestant must choose from four different numbers... 3, 4, 9, or 5? It's pretty much a crapshoot, as numbers can and do repeat themselves in the final prize... and that has made for some painful losses in the past.
In this case, the contestant chose the 5... and won!
One of Capcom's often-overlooked NES
games I missed out on during my youth, because I was too busy playing their war games, like "Bionic Commando" and "Code Name Viper."
This rather fun video game was loosely based on Windsor McCay's 1905 comic strip "Little Nemo's Adventures in Slumberland." Finally, a game with a historical basis, instead of the product of someone's pipe dream.
Little Nemo: The Dream Master is one of the BEST video games you've never played. It became a real sleeper hit (pardon the pun.)
