America in the Fifties!
How to tell when and where you are with just a few words.
A history of big American convertible cars, drive ins and drive through diners, fat hamburgers with fries and a Coke and Rock and Roll music in the background. Old movies like Grease capture the feeling of those days. And the English back then, it was cool.
It was boss.
It was hip.

Everything changes with the times. Including language. A few slang terms from the past and you can guess what time you are being transported back to. Throw in an accent and you can tell where. Throw in tone of voice and you can tell if you should laugh or be worried.
