There are lots of unresolved links. I suspect many of these were internal links within Wikipedia, but need to be external links now that this article is here.


Ref to Throughhole should be removed as this word is used in the electronics industry to indicate components that mounted through a hole (most old PCBs use these components). This is in contrast to surface mount components, where components are mounted on the surface with leads no piercing the board.

"Car Hold" is obviously "Car Hole" in the episode.

"Ahoy Hoy" isn't a made up word. Alexander Graham Bell wanted that to be the telephone greeting. Google it.--Sazmaqnilla 20:01, 29 August 2009 (UTC)


CrapulenceEdit

...is not a made up word, nor does the meaning match that given in this article. It means debauchery or indulgent behaviour. Therefore I am removing the word from the list. (I do have a wiki account, but my net is screwy and I can't sign in currently :S)

Up and Atom Edit

"Up and atom" wasn't made up for the Simpsons; it's from the 1960s Cartoon, Atom Ant. It was the title character's catch phrase. The entry we should have here is "Up and At Them", Ranier Wolfcastle's mangling of "Up and Atom", resulting from his not understanding the double meaning. - Seansinc (talk) 07:00, February 18, 2015 (UTC)
