My parents call it "the splodger".
'the jizzer', which became a bit odd after a while. I think it was the zapper before that. I just stick with remote these days, remote control if i need to get specific.
your mum must love getting spunked on.
what was it before the zapper? The spaffer? The spunker? The plastic cock?
or at what point i started to question it in my head.
It's not really the sort of thing i'm going to bring up though, i can't imagine how mortified she'd be if she realised what she was saying.
I WANT TO WATCH THE CORNATION STREETS
but it has also been known as the buttons.
My mum said the remote. I think 'doofer' was also slung about. WacKy.
My dad, in further tales of remote control wackiness, realised our local pub had the same TV as we did so occasionally he'd take our remote with him and covertly YET HILARIOUSLY switch the TV over when everyone was watching. Probs during the footie given he didn't care for it himself. He was pretty annoying.
If he was he would most definitely still be annoying.
i will never call it anything else.
Perhaps you're mistaken and "the splodger" actually refers to your father's own, err, "remote".
My best friend's family their's 'the buttons'.
Anyone who says 'the remote' is a homosexual immigrant.
A lot of my friends call it 'the button', though.
Oh no, that's not right. That's not right at all.
I've never questioned his grammar. I will now, though.
I say 'a lot', it's probably just the one. He's awkward though, won't admit to liking cheese, that sort of thing.
I'm above all that though so i say tv remote
so many names. It was much easier in the 80s when they just called my name and I ran over to the set and stood there flicking through the channels for them until they were happy
I might rename it Moaty.
sometimes the remote control
being in control means you're "driving".
i like to drive
Things get hectic quick
From the satellite dish to your joy stick
It's the night of the living cable box
Wires coming up from around the block
Remote control to change the station
But that won't change your situation
Have you seen what I mean
I'm the little gnome that's in your dreams
So I say this rhyme built by design
To take you beyond space and time
Said who is the man making diamonds out of coal
The man pushing buttons on remote control
Until your back's up against the wall
You never know yourself that much at all
So you've got to share your love with a friend
That's all that you've got left in the end
Living in this city of pure confusion
People mislead by their own illusion
All this action, no satisfaction
We're all linked together like a chain reaction
Play or fold, love is bold
What is the future that will unfold?
Some like it hot, others like it cold
But we all want to hold the remote control
Things get hectic quick
All of the sudden I'm in the thick
Too much drama all around
Distractions booming in sensuround
Like a rainy day's Earth won't sit still
Sliding on down a hill
Sometimes life seems to stall
So never be ungrateful y'all
So I got a little something for your pay per view
Like Don King I've got the crazy hair do
We've got cameras on Mars on space patrol
Controlled on Earth by remote control
