Friday Flash 55.....

The perplexed salesman entered his Manager's office.
"HELP...A guy called and said that he had a Cream Puff
Hand-Shaker with Cow-Hide for the Bride, and The Brains
be Bustin"???
The Manager...
"Your NOT from the city are you Son?
Your gentleman has a Older Low-Miler Manual Transmission,
with Leather Seats and a Power Moon Roof"!!!

Ahhh...Car Sales Lingo. I DO love it so!!!
If you or anyone you know has written a Friday Flash 55
Please come tell The G-Man
I will visit, read, enjoy, comment.....Then Book!!
So from the most graciously mobile host from coast to coast
Have a Kick Ass Week-End!!!

Now lets get the Old Goat outta the barn, and kill some bugs!
(Take the vintage GTO out of the garage and go cruisin)

I had to re-read that a couple of times to get all the nuances. Love it.

Mine is up

Brian Miller said...

alright, be back manana to see who arrives over night...

Margaret said...

I'm speechless... That is harder than the Latin my daughter and I are trying to learn !!! (I'm homeschooling her for 7th and 8th grade) I also have to memorize a bit of Shakespeare... but the car lingo would push me over the edge :)

I'm playing a bit late, but I gnashed my teeth and came up with something!

Glorious Promise

I'll be visiting everyone tomorrow morning as I have pre-algebra I have to go brush up on. UGH

Janna said...

Yikes! Wow. Glad I don't have to translate stuff like that in everyday conversation. I'd never leave the house. (!)

Thanks for another Friday 55!
Mine's here. :)

You, uh... you might have been mentioned. Slightly. ;)

hedgewitch said...

I love jargon and shop talk--it's poetry of the purest sort to me, and that was a great line. Thanks for the elucidation and translation, my car-trippin amigo.

I'm playin, but my back is acting up again, dammit--so it will likely be tomorrow before I do much sitting up and reading:


Teresa said...

Um...Is there a dictionary to translate into normal English?

Mine is up.

RNSANE said...

It's really nice that you like your job and you have a lingo all your own!
It's Greek to me, though.

My Friday Flash 55 is at:

Ann (bunnygirl) said...

All subcultures have their little insider lingo. I love it!

Mona said...

Some jargon. The manger is pretty much 'colored' by his trade :D

I wrote one too G man Here

Mona said...


the walking man said...

If it were a Fleetwood Brougham maybe!

Had nothing better to do this morning so IDoubled Downthis week too.

Mr. Charleston said...

First time trying this G-man. Looks like fun but can't figure out this linking thing.

Melissa Bickel said...

That is one boat of a car. Had one myself, not long ago.

I'll be back to read other 55's. Have doc appointment, had one yesterday. Asthma sucks!

Here's mine...a bit of a plug :)

Linc said...

I love me some good shop talk! And congrats on getting your old office back!

Here's mine:Fifty Shades of HEY!

hope said...

And I thought only small roadside diners had such cool lingo. :)

Mine's up...happy weekend!

Jenny Woolf said...

"special" words and are always so cool, so long as you are in the know! i love them too.

izzy said...

Ha ha ! I would never have gotten that.
but maybe I could do something similar with horse lingo- although it isn't so dramatic!
I am going to be late visiting, cause I am late starting!

Glenn Buttkus said...

Well, here is another visit with THE EMPTY CHAIR

Mama Zen said...

I got it all but the moon roof!

Jannie Funster said...

Ooooo, moon roof sounds good!

Cowhide for the bride -- gonna have to start dropping that in conversation daily! :)

And oh my goodness -- I almost forgot how to do this, but I think you'll find a link to a 55 and a drink in my next sentence...

Mine is here.

Yes, I actually just posted a 55!!!


lime said...

i'm glad you translated because i had no idea what any of that meant.

Anonymous said...

Ha! All I know is wheel, tire, fender, hood (maybe -- it is the front or the back?) Hey, I live in NYC - we WALK!!!!!

Even in the country, only there we call it HIKING! (Ha!)

Here's mine -sorry it's so late.

Hi Galen,
Am so so sorry I am very late. There are a whole lot of germs in my house it seems and I got infected again. GRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRrr....

I will drop by again to get to everyone after I see the doctor.

Mine is here

˙·٠•●❤Sh@KiR@ ❤●•٠·˙ said...

I got the gist of the lingo...but still maybe my mind is just slow today.
I am sure it is a great 55!!!
I will take my meds and read it again.
