    on nickle night

    This an extract from a dialog.

    ''This is a water balloon launcher."

    "Does it work?"

    "Like a whore on nickle night."

    "Pardon?"

    "It gets the job done."

    I might have misheard but I guess it was this way. What does "a whore on nickel night" mean?

    Re: on nickle night

    Well, ostap, I only know what 'nickel night' means when used alone. When a bar or a night club makes, for example, Friday a nickel night, that means that on Fri night all drinks cost 5 cents.
    I'd assume that on nickel nights there're lots of drunk men. Hence, there's a lot of work for prostitues. That's just my assumption, of course.

    Re: on nickle night

    "Nickel night" refers to any event where the product or service costs only five cents (a five cent coin in the US is called a "nickel"). Many bars have "nickel beer night" for example. There is also an old (rather rude) idiom about "sweating like a two dollar whore on nickel night," meaning a prostitute who usually charges $2 per "date" has to sell her services for five cents a session on this particular night. With such a discount in place of course business will be brisk and she will be kept very busy working non-stop.
