Space Loaf Quickie
So, faithful time-wasters, I've kept you waiting long enough. You've been wondering for a week now what I meant by "space loaf" and now I'm jolly well going to tell you.
It's actually a shortcut, that phrase. It contains two ideas, or concepts if you will. The first is that if you put the word "space" in front of pretty much anything, it makes it funnier. Hold in your mind an image of a sci-fi movie from the early 50s, where the characters could sound extremely futuristic by saying words like "electromagnetism" or "atomic," thus rendering them Power Rangers cool.
You get the idea. What's up to you is how you play the idea in your conversation.
"Holy space kittens, Roger! It's been a long time since I've seen you!"
"Um, not really. Weren't you over just last night?"
"That's a bunch of space rot and you know it."
"Why don't you go home?"
Write that down. Add "space" and it's cooler and funnier. Makes you sound like a genius.
"Loaf," on the other hand, when appended to a word, always makes it less desirable. Mostly when referring to foodstuffs.
Again, it's up to you how you apply this knowledge, time-wasters.
"Eeew! What is this stuff? Bat loaf?"
"It's Hamburger Helper. You like it, remember?"
"Space rot! This stuff looks like bum loaf, and I'm not touching it."
"Why are you still here?"
I'm trying to start a trend, so I might validate my existence. Spread it around!
Off into the wild public frontiers I go now. Time to visit the real world for a bit. See how it's getting along. You know. Catch up.
