I dont belive it !!!

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
Some of you may know that ive been trying to get our bedroom sorted, ( it's taken a week so far), so that we all have more space, especially for Tabitha and Daisy to run around ( The things i do !!). And recently got a new wardrobe, which they both thought was for them ! All this meant that the place has been an absolute TIP!! for what seems like forever! Yeaterday i ( I, myself no help from my husband!!) finally finished!! Then i get a phone call from him asking if i could make some space? What sort of space i asked small big HUGE??!! He then tells me space enough for a FRIUT MACHINE!!!!
Ahhhhhh!! So i had to undo all my hard work in the bedroom to fit other things in there as well and the hallway etc and im back in a mess!!!
However!!, it was all worth it because Tabitha and Daisy love the friut mach!! My husband has always wanted one, and after we pluged it in etc Daisy jumped up onto it and presses one of the buttons with her paw and got the JACKPOT!!!!!!!!!!! I dont think hubby will ever forgive her !!!

I had to Google "Fruit machine" to figure out what you were talking about.

I think most people in the U.S. call them slot machines, or maybe I'm the only one who didn't know what the term "Fruit machine" meant. In England they're called "Fruit machines" ? Here I am thinking that you were putting an electric juicer in your bedroom and wondering why. I shouldn't be surprised. You guys call fries - chips, and chips - crisps. OH, and your pubs have something called "Spotted dick" on the menu. I really don't know what that is, but there is no way I'm ordering it. Weird.

Yeah I had visions of the fruit machine on Zaboomafoo (kids show anyone?) where they press buttons on the machine and out pops fruit for the wild animals. I'm thinking the cats would like it much better if it was a fish mashine or something...

That sounds adorable! New toy!

HE HE!! The reason we call them Friut machines is because when they first started ( the old ones ) all they had on the reels were different types of friut. And also "One arm bandit" due to the arm you pulled down and "bandit" cause they rob you blind !!
And spotted dick is a pudding (sweet) (dessert) made from sponge and currants served with custard !! So now you know!!

Ditto! Here is what I thought she was talking about!!

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fruit_machine


But then I looked at her location and clicked the "For the UK English meaning, gambling machines, see Slot machine"

Here we know them as Video Lottery Terminals, or VLT's.

US - Slot machines
UK - Fruit machines
CA - Video Lottery Terminal

now I'm interested in other country/culture names for them.

"One-armed bandit."

Maybe you could rig the machine to dispense treats for jackpots?

I had no idea what you were talking about until I read the other posts!
