I had to write up a product description for something Doctor Who-ish — Creation is doing some Who shotglasses with the TARDIS and the series logo.
I needed something catchy. Something the Doctor would drink.
It came to me.
I typed it up, giggling all the way.
Something along the lines of “If you’re going to put away a Gallifreyan Tickler with the Doctor, you’ll want these shotglasses yadda yadda yadda.”
A Gallifreyan Tickler? What’s that, you say?
There’s a Doctor Who fan audio from BTR Productions entitled “The Monopoly Pub Crawl of Doom” — the Doctor and his two companions land in London on Christmas Eve and get involved in a pub crawl. At one point the Doctor, very sloshed, asks for a Gallifreyan Tickler.
Yeah, it’s obscure. The number of people who would recognize the reference probably numbers under a thousand. The number of people who would recognize the reference and see the product listing? Could probably count that on a single hand.
But don’t think I didn’t enjoy writing that up. 😉
The text came back from Purchasing this afternoon, and it’s gone to Layout. The Gallifreyan Tickler, it’s going in the catalog. 🙂
