Far off in the constellation of Kasterborous, on the yellow-orange planet of Gallifrey (galactic coordinates 10-0-11-0-0 by 02 from Galactic Zero)a group of enthusiastic technicians work tirelessly using their sonic screwdrivers, pimping up a Type 40 TT capsule in the style of a mid 20th Century, Earth-Style Police-Call-Box...

       Echo? Pun? Not an invention? I don't know. Made me laugh though.

       I'm not sure either, quite possibly one for expiry....
zen_tom, Apr 07 2005
  

       Does the word 'pimp' have a different meaning now? I only recognize it as "streetwalker's manager / minder".

       The architypal (blaxploitation) pimp is outrageously and gaudily dressed - hence to spruce, tart or otherwise modify something in order to enhance its appearance is referred to as an act of Pimping. I Pimp, You Pimp, he/she it Pimps. In addition, once someone has performed an act of Pimping on an object (more often than not a vehicle of some kind) it can be referred to as having been Pimped, or occasionally; Pimped Up, or Totally Pimped Out.   

       See link for further details.

       All is made clear. Yet another reason to be grateful for lack of access to MTV.

       [the_both_of_yous]: well put.

       With all due respect could people please stop pimping things. Many things are perfectly fine unpimped. Upon happening on this idea I almost posted "Pimp my pimp" in which a "streetwalker's manager" is given shiny lights and a fancy paint job, and is used to carry people, much like a horse.

       Why can't the doctor go back in time and stop the time lords from being exterminated!

       It depends on the time-travelling science fiction conventions he's living in. If it's
a) The <<<Back-To-The-Future model, then he's got a chance, but only for a short period of time before things start to 'fade' away.
b) The 'Sliders' multi-worlds model, then anything goes, and it really doesn't matter anyways.
c) The self-sorting model, where things that have happened must have happenend already, in exactly the same way they happened in the first place - or something. Like that story where the time-travellers go back in time and watch Jesus being crucified, only to realise that the croud shouting for Barrabas was made up exclusively of time-travelling tourists, who were trying really hard to blend in.

       [m-f-d]: pimp-my magic.
Basepair, May 05 2005
  

       [basepair] thinks everything is magic. The category is culture: television: series, not product: time travel and teleportation device. This is the only halfway decent "pimp my ____" idea I've seen so far.

       I love [hidden truths]'s anno. "With all due respect, could people please stop pimping things." I've got to find an opportunity to use that one. Ideas?

       Fun but already done. Was Austin Powers' time machine not pimped-up from a VW Beetle to some hideous, bouncy-suspensioned pimpmobile for 'Goldmember'?
