Do you ever buy a generic version of something and still refer to it as it's main brand counterpart?  For example, no matter what lip balm I buy I refer to it as a "Chapstick".

All movies are Plan 9 from Outer Space for me. Even the romantic comedies.

I've noticed that Xerox has lost its primacy. Now instead of people saying they need to "Xerox" something they use the word "photocopy."

Frisbee is used over "flying disc."

 BounceGiggle Thumbup  That sounds like something I would say.  And everyone would be looking at me blankly as I laugh at my own joke.

I usually don't buy generic brands (I'm one of those fools who believes the television commercials).  However, when I was a kid, I referred to any brand of cola as "Coke."

By the way, my ass knows when I wipe it with anything other than Charmin.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.
