Sunny Speak: Perilous Parlor Edition - submitted by ruthlesswriter
On the "Clever Cards" in the Parilous Parlor game, Sunny says various baby words. Several of them are references to grim-ish things.
Opec: A reference to O.P.E.C., the Organization of Petrolium Exporting Countries, who tries (in vain) to bring oil prices down. Also an anagram of cope.
Maguffin:A phrase used in the movie industry to refer to an object in a film that causes bad things to happen/ sets the plot in motion(e.g. the Ark of the Covenant is the Maguffin of the 1st Indiana Jones movie). Usually spelled McGuffin.
Zagam: A refrence to the Zagam Bridge in Boston that caused a lot a controversy. The man who built it was violently murdered.
Smee: Captain Hook's right hand man in Peter Pan.
Reekrat: What does it sound like?
Yootat: Hard one. It's an anagram of "Y tatoo", maybe a refrence to the fact that before V.F.D. came into the picture, the Bauds didn't know why Olaf had his tattoo.
