Fried Gold, meaning 'great' or 'perfect' replaced the phrase 'Textbook' in the Spaced DVD commentry and also appeared in Shaun of the Dead. The phrase was invented by Nick Frost, who is also a firm believer that dogs can't look up.
'See that, it's Fried Gold.'
'Look at Aida's expression - it's Fried Gold!'
'How's that for a slice of Fried Gold?'
A term to mean something really really cool or impressive. Originates from the T.V series Spaced and popularised in the film Shaun of the Dead.
"Now how's that for a slice of fried gold!"
Again,invented by Nick Frost and popularized by the movie Shaun of the Dead. However, I believe the intended meaning stems not from something being hot enough to fry gold, but rather a combination of the appreciations for things made of gold, and fried foods; as if the only way gold could be any more valuable is if it were battered and deep fried. (Mmmmmmm, fried gold..) This also seems very befitting of Nick Frost's character.

Something that couldn't possibly be made any better. A plan with no flaws

Bush's idea to invade Iraq wasn't exactly fried gold.
To do something that is especially good, being hot enough to fry gold.
I believe this term comes from the people responsible for the british TV sitcom 'Spaced' and the romantic zombie comedy 'Shaun of the Dead'. As far as I'm aware the man responsible is the rotund comedy actor, Nick Frost.
