A Dictionary About Nothing

Saturday, November 27, 2004
Ah, the show about nothing now has an online Dictionary about Nothing to make sure you don't forget those terribly shallow and yet unforgettable phrases which will never quite make their way out of the popular culture milleu. A few favourites:
Coffee Table Book, The (About Coffee Tables) - 1) a book that illustrates the coffee tables of famous celebrities, and is meant to be kept on one's coffee table 2) the same book with fold out legs so it can be used as a coffee table

Double-Dipping - when a person dips a snack chip into a dip, takes a bite, and then dips again with the same bitten chip ("it's like putting your whole mouth right in the dip!!!")

Soup Nazi - 1) a take-out soup restaurant that serves many varieties of soup, but only soup 2) a temperamental foreigner who owns a soup restaurant, and either refuses to serve a customer or throws him/her out of the restaurant for the slightest little annoyance

"These pretzels are making me thirsty" - a tall, Hipster Doofus's only line in a Woody Allen movie
