How to Talk in the 21st Century – Idioms Saturday, March 3, 2007Posted by athleticsupporter in athleticsupporter, the balls, video games.
Probably more than anybody else, we here at DeadOn believe in the power of pop culture. When I recently came across a couple of phrases I had never heard over at Idioms – How to talk in the 21st Century, I thought I should share them with the DeadOn readers due to their strong ties to video games that we all know and love.
I’m going to bang the bricks
The idiom used for I’m going to go withdraw money from the ATM. I don’t know why, but I’ve never liked telling people I had to get cash out of the bank. I like references to Super Mario Brothers much better.
The blocks didn’t fall right
The idiom, referencing Tetris, is used for when something in life just doesn’t turn out the way you wanted it to. If your like me, just hearing the word “Tetris” makes you start playing a game of it in your head.
Do you have any idioms such as this that are pop-culture related? or just plain awesome? Tell us more in the comments…
