Book him, Dano!

Today my friend Ramit showed me an email and asked, "What does this person mean when she writes, 'Book him, Dano.'"

I said, "It's from Hawaii Five-O."

"What's Hawaii Five-O?" he asked.

At that point, the other two people within earshot who were above the age of 30 burst out laughing and felt incredibly old.

Man, I am old.

Yes... some phrases deserve to live in perpetuity...

Don't feel so bad; when I talk to my girlfriend (who is my age), she often doesn't know pop culture references because she grew up in another country.

So, Ramit could be pop culturally-challenged or foreign. Failing that, you may still be old

Are you aware that, according to Wiki, Jack Lord never said "Book 'em Dano", he actually said, "Book 'em Dan". Not sure how it got changed to Dano. Just found that interesting.
