  • twenties slang -

    lickety split = quickly; right away

    a white cow is a vanila milk shake
    (a black cow is a Coke float)

    carhops waited on people in their cars at drive-in fast food restaurants. Your food was served on a tray that hung on the open car window.

    A motorcycle called a chopper until after WWII. In the twenties, it was a name for the Thompson submachine gun, or "tommy gun".

    I left out "wasn't" after motorcycle and misspelled "vanilla"
