Mensagem:  Tom, when was the last time you used a "dimmer switch?" A "choke?" When did you last "hang a broadie?" I had a "broadie knob" come off in my hand years ago. Pretty exciting. When did you last hear about "floorboards?" "Three at the knee?" "Four on the floor?" Did you have "dingleballs" in your car? You probably did if you lived in Los Angeles. "Fuzzy dice?" When was the last time the "fuzz" pulled you over? And when was the last time you got a decent prize in your Cracker Jacks? And who was the last person you called a "cracker jack"? - Dale
