Kids at rival schools mocked this name

How could they not?

This serves up "dip" on a platter and invites mean queries about whether students there are wearing their Little Swimmers super-soaker underwear.

Yes, I am aware that "The Jetsons" was not a documentary. But it did correctly predict back in the 1960s that, in the future, there would be goof-off workers like George Jetson and screamer bosses like Mr. Spacely.

As for sprockets and cogs being a big industry, well, that's still sort of up in the air.

Jane Jetson was a drag. But one always hoped daughter Judy would latch on to the possibilities of the future with a more tenacious grip.
