    And the name on the buzzer

    - "So that's 5 dozen lobsters
    for Ivana Tinkle?

    - And the name on the buzzer
    is Phil McCracken?
    "


    what does buzzer mean on this context?

    I take it that you do know that the people's names are jokes, and that the practice of sending fake orders is itself a practical joke?

    Usually it is intended to discommode the recipient -- who suddenly finds that a pizza joint is demanding to be paid for the delivery of two dozen pepperoni pizzas.

    But in this case -- where the names are false and joking puns -- the target of the practical joke seems to be the supplier of all those expensive lobsters.

    Re: And the name on the buzzer

    Yeah, like Ivana Tinkle...I wanna tinkle...I want to go pee.

    Phil McCracken...feel me cracking (the lobster, that is).

    By the way, Adriano, I'd love to know what you're reading because some of the dialog you have posted is hilarious!

    "Fill my crack in", wouldn't you think?

    Re: And the name on the buzzer

    I think mine makes better sense in the context of lobsters.

    But then again, maybe I'm just not quite jaded enough.


    Ahh, English usage at its finest.

    Greg
    I made a casual reference one time about "men's vs. women's vocabulary." One of my friends denied that English has any such thing, until I pointed out that he would hardly say, "I bought some lovely undies today."

    In the same way, I think that "tinkle" is a female's word.

    Is that so in everyone's eyes?
