What terms or phrases haven't you heard in awhile that are in desperate need of saving? (speaking as a buggy whip manufacturer)

Examples include:
-phone numbers with a location in them. (KL5-1212)

-Gag me with a [spoon | chainsaw | metal instrument of choice]

-Ya can't rollerskate in a buffalo herd (a doo wakka doo wakka doo)

-10-4 good buddy

-Now you're cookin' with heat!

Calling a TV remote a clicker. People born before, oh roughly, 1980 never heard of them (from my experience.)

The word "baud".

Teletype and/or typewriter noises in the background of radio commercials or news reports. It's a real meaty noise, not this wimpy click-click-click I hear from the surrounding cubicles all day.

Strangely enough that line is now in the Perfect Circle new album playing in my car this moning.

Lost but not forgotten ...

By Jove.

A finger of fudge is just enough to give the kids a treat.
