and wand? a hoofer-doofer?
Every time, always and never anything else.
i like it.
god i hate people like that. "hey, have you seen my 'rents? i think they stole the 'mote"
From reading the replies I see you meant the remote control for the TV.
I was thinking you meant one of those guns you stun people with.
A destructive device, especially one that destroys by means of electric current or radiation: a bug zapper.
A remote-control device for switching a television set on and off and for changing channels.
I don't know, Lucy. I think you've made that up. I'm telling you that a zapper is gun you stun people with. No one has EVER used it to refer to anything else. You people are all just disagreeing with me to make me look foolish.
i love your momo face.
Anything else is just pointless and stupid and needlessly wacky.
GO GO GADGET NOB
yup. mostly thingy. or "can you pass the...um..?" by the time i have got that far, it is in my possession. i speak slowly. sometimes.
though I have been known to call it 'the control box' on occasion
it confuses me a lot when he asks me to pass the box.
Or 'the TV remote' when I need to be more specific.
This is based on the irksome twat's irksome twat Tim Dowling's G2 piece, isn't it?
actually did call it the penis. this was shocking when i was 11.
than you are letting on
my friend's mum was a bit mad. she called the remote control "the penis". the end.
the 'jizzer'. Not sure on the spelling, but it seemed to make sense at the time - you know, maybe like gizmo, zapper?
I don't think that i'd ever be able to correct her on this. What could you say?
it was called the 'TV box' for some unfathomable reason. Since I've matured into an adult, I've called it the remote.
As far back as I can remember we have called it that.
All my friends think its a stupid b=name for it, but as usual they are wrong!
