25. Funny story
I don't know if it ever aired in Australia, but on the Nickelodeon cable network there used to be this kids' game show called Double Dare hosted by a guy, Mark Summers, who probably made a second living selling used cars. His smile and face were that plastic and fake.

Anyway, back in college I was working at this place that provided private tutoring for kids who were having difficulty in school. If you're familiar with Sylvan Learning Centers it was like that, but this was a private place owned and ran by a retired professor of education and our kids actually learned.

So one day I was working with this kid who IIRC was in third or fourth grade and was having a difficult time multiplying large numbers. All of a sudden in a fit of frustration the kid screams out at me, "You know what you are!? Double Dare host! You're a Double Dare host!"

I thought that was the best insult ever and to this day I still smile every time I think about it and Super Dumb Flubber Dubber just puts me in mind of this kid and his improvised insults.
