old hat

April 18, 2012

When the H-bomb came around
people forgot about the A-bomb
which, upon its invention,
made the blockbuster
obsolete

The blockuster was called that
because
when dropped from a plane
it would level a whole city block
and a whole lot of people
Each bomb would contain over
one ton
of explosive material
During WWII, Berlin and the
Berliners had several blockbusters
dropped
whether they supported that guy or not

These bombs were sometimes affectionately called
“cookies”

Eventually “blockbuster” came to refer to
a movie
that a whole lot of people liked
and then
in 1985
a giant chain of stores that
rented out those video tapes
and also tapes of movies no one liked

That company is all but obsolete now too

By the way,
I wiki’d a lot of this
so
