So I'm curious, what do we actually call the television? TV is already taken!
Brad - that one's easy for me as prior to arriving in Canada a television was always called the "Telly"

Naw - the telephone was one of the really strange slang terms - we used to call the telephone the "Blower" . No idea where it originated.

<LOL> Blower was the Brits term for how they communicated aboard ship. Not sure of the exact terminology. It was used on US ships earlier for the 1MC devices.

Affirmative we used it on British ships. It is slang for telephone.
