"They don't make cars or carnauba based sealant like they used to.", Tom waxed nostalgically.

A "buttload" is an actual measurement, next time someone tells you that they need a buttload of something, tell them 126 gallons might be a bit too much.

"What on earth is going on in this thread?" queried May, confusedly.  :?

Pretty much, yeah.
It's also generational since Tom Swift as a literary character is almost forgotten now in the U.S., almost nobody under the age of 50 knows of him.


The only reason I know of him is because I read the entire Young Adult section in a very outdated small town library when I was a kid, they had (almost) the entire Tom Swift Jr. series, which I ate up like popcorn.

"Carrie Nation visited my saloon", said Tom, dispirited.
EDIT: "I have to concentrate hard to make a camping trip work", said Tom intently.

"I have the right to defend myself!", Tom shot back. <-- I'm not sure if this one fits the rules.

"I will make the incision here.", Tom said cuttingly.

"There is no moon tonight.", said Tom darkly.

"It feels like she just tore it out of my chest" said Tom, disheartened.

"These are my new breeding hens" said Tom, cockily.  (Yes - I steered away from the obvious, here!)  :)

"But I want MORE ferment grape!" Tom whined.

"I don't know if these plants are poison ivy but I will run through them anyway!", said Tom, rashly.

"I'm so glad those metal bars kept me from falling into the storm drain", said Tom, gratefully.
