Saw your cool new handle and thought I'd post mine. I think Mike made them at about the same time. I saw yours in a picture he sent of mine.
First the wideshot...

Then the moneyshot:

Hope yours fits as well as mine! Good luck with your cooks...

    Yours look Great!!! and they fit like a glove!
  • Good, mine too.
    And yup Tweev, "moneyshot"..."popshot". What have you ;)
  • WHA?? What in the world are you talking about?

    :ohmy: This oughtta be a good one! :whistle: :pinch: :blink: :huh: Your handle did NOT look the LEAST bit VULGAR to me! :)
  • HossHoss Posts: 14,600
    A lot of folks on here call their finished pic a "money shot"??????? :huh: :S
  • Lookit you...stirring the pot - and I'm not talking about a Cast Iron pot :laugh:
  • Tweev, that's positively horrifying :huh: . We're you raised in some sort of a barn up there in the Great White North?

    I did'nt click on the link because I personally think there was no harm/foul and really don't give a
    about wikipedia or Urban slang.I do know that when ANYONE posts a picture of something they are proud of on THIS forum it is often referred to as a "Money Shot"!!!XCUSE my ignorance. :blush:

    Way outta line on your part...and a little disturbing that you can judge such a comment, based on your call it vulgar..and base it on porn....obviously you are familiar with porn..but yet call the post vulgar...kinda makes one wonder... ;)
  • HossHoss Posts: 14,600
    Me MUST concur! :) :laugh:
  • WessBWessB Posts: 6,937 related it to well known in the porn industry....shows where only your mind was...noone else's....I didn't find it vulgar in the least bit...
  • WessBWessB Posts: 6,937
    It is a common understanding in the porn idustry what the term means.....but if a golfer won a 1/2 million in a tournament on a putt and they call it the "money shot" it would mean something differnt...just the same if someone makes a post on this forum with a pic of food or anything else and calls it the "money shot" it OBVIOULY means something other than the porn definition...what worries me is that a forum post about a handle made you for whatever reason relate it to porn...gotta wonder...

    By Tweev's own Wikipedia link, which I quote below, the term is not necessarily used currently in the porn sense, unless, of course, one spends a lot of time in the porn arena - which Tweev obviously does. Most of the posters here clearly have no clue this was a porn term!!!

    Tweev's Wikipedia link (last paragraph): "The term has gained acceptance in pop culture and is sometimes used in conversation. Borrowing the meaning from the pornographic film industry, the term is used to refer to a highly anticipated or satisfying end, but in a non-pornographic context. (my emphasis)." !

    This Canadian (Tweev) has started a political rant (US politics, mind you), and has pornographically distorted Thunderbunny's proud post of his new handle, and has yet to post anything significantly related to cooking on an Egg! :ohmy:
    I'm finding less and less reasons to give him any credibility or respect and think I will treat his posts as I do those of trolls - ignore (a term which is fitting for this highly educated, but "ignorant" fan of Fox News). :sick:
  • on your BGE, Thunderbunny B)

    ThunderBunny, please don't order a wiggle rod. It may cause an international incident! :lol:
  • As long as you know more than others, you will be decried for your stupidity.

    It's not your fault that you know the actual meaning of the phrase, and it's not your fault that they don't.
  • WessBWessB Posts: 6,937
    Oh please.....your kidding right...
  • No. I'm not.

    It's like the idiots who refer to Asians as "oriental". Just because you know a word (or phrase, in this case), doesn't mean you know what it actually means.

    "money shot" is classless. The handle photo is absolutely fine. But if you don't literally mean "money shot" (as in, um, "c*mshot"), then you are using it ironically, which is itself still a reference to it's original meaning.

    Sounds like you didn't know what it meant. But you do now. And simply using it out of context doesn't mean you get to use it. You can't get away with using the "n" word just because you aren't using it in the original context either. if your defense is "I didn't know what it really meant", well, that's only good the first time

    Maybe you should re-read my replies if you wanna imply I didn't know the porn related meaning..and by your own words you are proving that one's "perception" of the term money shot..actually refers to different "term" your case as many others it would be what you suggested....certainly not the one and only "perception" of a term or phrase...maybe you shouldn't think everyone in life is so naive..I would bet there aint a man over 25 that doesn't know the term..and in the context you suggest...either way it had NO point in being drug into a remark someone made about their custom handle..on the BGE it's turned into a political and intellectual bunch of crap....

  • WessBWessB Posts: 6,937
    I couldn't agree with you more....

    We're all in this together, Wess. :S
