the vice verser

How awesome was it back in the 1940s? Very. Back then, since every new invention was a crazy, unheard of step for humankind, they named each device after what it did, eg: the toaster, vacuum cleaner or suspenders. There was none of this 'iPod', 'wiFi', 'TV' crap that we have now. I mean, if you didn't know what it was, would the word 'TV' shed any light on the subject? No. That's why I maintain that we should go back to the oldschool way of naming stuff. Observe:

skateboard isnt that bad, actually. i mean, it's a board, and you use it to skate. rollerboard would have been better though.

Ah yes, but what does it mean to 'skate'? Is it just the actual action of skating, or does it equally apply to when you spike up your hair, wear black t-shirts, wristbands and listen to emo? They had none of these social wankerisms in the 40s.

I should be ticked off, but you made me laugh: "hour hour". I'm probably amused because I'm half past it. I've had so little sleep. I bet you sleep like an-a-log. I have to hand it to you. You give no quarter. You'd better face the fact that you're a chimepion. Diggit?


Watches are time machines. They just only ever move forwards. If there were no watches, there would be no time and we would never die. SMASH THEM ALL!

not to burst your "the good ol' days were better" bubble of nostalgia, but if i'd never seen suspenders i wouldn't know what they did...
if anything, i'd think they were evil trolls employed to dish out punishment on behalf of teachers
almost as terrifying as the REALITY of suspenders

Explain this Professor Will; The word ‘sham’ refers to a decorative pillow case and is a synonym of ‘fake’. The word ‘poo’ is the name of a fictional character in the Japanese video game; EarthBound, and is the synonym of feces. By combining the two words we somehow have a product which we will place on our head and rub vigorously until it begins to froth. Why????

Obviously, you haven't tried putting said EarthBound character in a decorative pillow case. I'm pretty sure if you left him in there for a while he'd start to froth.

Also the earth has roots. So does hair. It all makes sense now doesn't it.

And more also, Loch means a scottish lake, and is the synonym of rapper Tone Loc's mad Scottish brother. Ness is also an Earthbound character and is not really a synonym of the NES. Put them together and you get a rad monster whose powers include the ability to blur up the lens of any camera in the vicinity, thus producing fake looking photographic evidence of his existence.
