Hmm. I can't find any cultural events for us to attend tonight. I guess we'll just have to watch the idiot box.

Get the idiot box mug.
A black, cubical, electronic "box". One side of this cube is however, bot black, but a clear "screen". When this electronic box is activated or "turned on", it flashes towards the "viewer" various images and sounds. These images and sounds are usually either fabricated in a "studio" or coming "live" from a very different place than the viewer is sitting on the couch and watching/hearing them.

Damn, New Years Eve fucking sucked. I sat in my apartment all alone and watched the idiot box until passing out at 2AM.
