oline said...

ha your ownself!

Les Savy Ferd said...

at least you didn't say 'duckets' or 'tix'.

my very first thought was "why is he bandying about 18th century french coinage like it's slang?"

please tell me this isn't what the cool kids call their cash these days?

Les Savy Ferd said...

no, that would be ducats. but yes, I have heard (un)cool kids refer to tickets as 'duckets.' the reason why escapes me.

so i was to come up with a snappy answer, but i just wound up finding this on urban dictionary and now am mesmerized by the ambiguity here:

Oline describes a near-spherical shape which is spherical enough not to be ovoid, but not spherical enough to be truly spherical. It is the shape of an olive.

thank heavens the olive showed up to save the day...

oline = olive?
