n.— «Turning it into a “strip” channel may be its fate. Don’t get excited: That’s not strip as in nubile women. “Strips” is industry argot for reruns of popular shows like Friends, Seinfeld and The Honeymooners. They’re still hits with viewers, and they come cheap.» —“Wonder who’s backing Moses’s Toronto 1 bid?” by The Goat Globe and Mail (Toronto, Can.) Aug. 19, 2004. (source: Double-Tongued Dictionary)
