Too much Sons of Anarchy on the mind. I saw "Crow" and "Sam" is the only thing I could think of.

I'll be honest: I have never heard of Lazy Susan until Gravity Falls. I typed that in jokingly, and it worked. I had to look up what an actual Lazy Susan, because to my knowledge, she was just a creepy waitress who loved Grunkle Stan.

A "lazy susan" does not normally refer to a person, but to a circular tray that sits in the middle of a table and spins around so that eaters can access different dishes or condiments. I have no idea why it is called a "lazy susan."

Debby Downer? Chatty Cathy? Gee, must be Americanism. Never heard of them. And Joe Six Pack... I vaguely remember Mr Burns from the Simpsons calling someone that now I come to think about it.

Joe Six Pack is a generic name (usually in politics) to describe the average American, or typically the average voter.

I'm American - no Debbie Downer for me, either. And I think Joe Six Pack is a stereotype of an average blue-collar American who punches a time clock and comes home to drink a six-pack and watch low-class TV.

@Quizmeister: I had heard of debbie downer before the SNL sketch. Perhaps it was a regional thing and known only in the New York City metro area where I grew up, but I knew of it before SNL. Also, it is sort of unrelated, but I had also heard of yada yada long before it was on Seinfeld, and while I love Seinfeld, I have always been annoyed when certain people credit Seinfeld for creating the saying.

Bottom line: yada yada was not created by 'Seinfeld,' and Debbie Downer was not created by Saturday Night Live.

Shouldn't Nora be accepted? Bloody Mary is obviously known as both a historical queen and a cocktail, but as an everyday expression, Bloody Nora is far more common.
