    Earth to America

    Can anyone help me what Earth to America means. Does it also has the same meaning with the expression like earth to baker, earth to lucia and so on.

    Hi, iass1378!
    Welcome to the forum!
    Please give us a little more context! Where did you hear the expression "Earth to America"? What was the context?

    Cheers,
    Amigo

    Re: Earth to America

    I saw that expression in a book ("Earth to Baker!), and in a title of UCC (earth to America), and some blog (their name are "earth to David", "earth to Luisa" etc.)

    how about this one;
    David was next to giddy about the group all being in touch with each other via phone."
    (Context: The system had been out of order so they couldn't have used their phone. At last the system became normal situation. )
    -What does David was next ti Giddy means?

    #1 "Earth to xxx" carries the connotation: "Get real - pay attention to what the rest of the world thinks/wants".

    #2 He was really excited that things are back to normal - it is making his head spin. Very colloquial.
