I might be making this up.
A la "Sparkle" on SNL many years ago: It's a floor wax. It's a dessert topping.
Whoops--it was "Shimmer.""The original skit was on Saturday Night Live, Season 1 Episode 5. Dan Ackroyd was the husband, Gilda Radner the wife, and Chevy Chase the announcer. It’s become a bit of a Silicon Valley icon, standing for something: Wife: New Shimmer is a floor wax! Husband: No, new Shimmer is a dessert topping! Wife: It’s a floor wax!Husband: It’s a dessert topping! Wife: It’s a floor wax, I’m telling you! Husband: It’s a dessert topping, you cow!Spokesman: [ enters quickly ] Hey, hey, hey, calm down, you two. New Shimmer is both a floor wax and a dessert topping! Here, I’ll spray some on your mop.. [ sprays Shimmer onto mop ] ..and some on your butterscotch pudding. [ sprays Shimmer onto pudding ]"
