Fallguide

Created by: scrabbelicious

Pronunciation: Fah-all-gu-ide

Sentence: Clint was no idiot. No Sir! If he was a movie star he'd certainly have done his own stunts. But only after his personal fallguide tested the equipment, of course.

Etymology: Cunning modification of Fallguy, 80's tv show starring the same guy who did the Bionic Man, I think (er..no typecasting here!), and whose real name may also have been Guy (which is unlikey really). And 'Girl Guide' akin to Boy scout but disbanded and sadly subsumed into Scouts. (See any Enid Blython book).
