      "Cakes" is the rear end. And taking a "dookie" is what you do in the restroom, which used to be called #2.

            •  "This is Spinal Tap" is a mockumentary (1+ / 0-)
              Recommended by:

              Produced by Rob Reiner in 1984.

              This Is Spinal Tap (officially spelled This Is Spın̈al Tap, with a non-functional umlaut over the letter n — n-diaeresis — and a dotless letter i) is an American 1984 rock musical mockumentary directed by Rob Reiner about the fictional heavy metal band Spinal Tap. The film satirizes the wild personal behavior and musical pretensions of hard-rock and heavy-metal musical bands, as well as the hagiographic tendencies of rock documentaries of the time.

              Reiner and the three main stars are credited as the writers of the film, based on the fact that much of the dialogue was ad libbed by them. Several dozen hours of footage were filmed before Reiner edited it to the released film. A 4½ hour bootleg version of the film exists and has been traded among fans and collectors for years.[2]

              The three core members of Spinal Tap—David St. Hubbins, Derek Smalls and Nigel Tufnel—are played by the American actors Michael McKean, Harry Shearer, and Christopher Guest, respectively. The three actors play their musical instruments and speak with mock English accents throughout the film. Reiner appears as Marty DiBergi, the maker of the documentary. Other actors in the film are Tony Hendra as the group manager Ian Faith and June Chadwick as St. Hubbins' interfering girlfriend Jeanine. Actors Paul Shaffer, Fred Willard, Fran Drescher, Bruno Kirby, Howard Hesseman, Ed Begley, Jr., Patrick Macnee, Anjelica Huston, Vicki Blue, Dana Carvey and Billy Crystal all play supporting roles or make cameo appearances in the film. Scream queen starlets Brinke Stevens and Linnea Quigley appear in cameos as groupies of the band.

    •  hardly a euphemism. (2+ / 0-)

      Hell, it's a dysphemism, like referring to food as shit.  

      Call 'em your private parts, your naughty bits, your sexy bits, your genitals, your Fun & Games Department, your sinner-winners, your Waldo, your Wazoo, or your Whatever.  

      But not "junk" or "trash" or "scrap metal."  

      We are not robots.

        it was quite awhile ago that "terrific" stopped meaning terror-inspiring and started meaning "really good".  In other words, slang seizes on contrary meanings.

        talks about expressions used by the youth of about 10 years ago, Phat means good, so does, "The shit", so does, "da Bomb" ... "So if I'm a fat shit bomb, I should be very popular with the young folks, right?"
