Slippery Jim

The bicycling parts of the silent short "Slippery Jim" are downright peculiar and almost Monty Python-ish in nature. Apparently it is not the same as "Slippery Jim's Repentance", staring Maurice Costello, who is the great grandfather of Drew Barrymore, entered films with Thomas Edison, and discovered Moe Howard (of the Stooges). Something you can throw out when mixing at parties.

And while Slippery Jim isn't a euphemism for anything, a Slippery Kenny is and isn't safe for work, but is also a useful party tidbit depending on who you're partying with.
