My first idea -- this is so draft I'm not even going to submit it into the Explanation: Could Cueball be associating NEXUS with the FernGully villain Hexxus? And the Cisco company/brand of IT products with Commander/Captain Benjamin Sisko from ST:DS9 and Crisco vegetable shortening? I don't have time to look into the other things referenced, and I don't immediately recognize them, but feel free to build on this if you want. Or don't; I don't have time to care right now. --BigMal // 13:00, 20 November 2017 (UTC)

Ciscoes are a whitefish in the Salmonid family --13:08, 20 November 2017 (UTC)

The "Thong Song" is sang by an artist named "Sisqo". And The Caballero's Way written by O.Henry features a character named "the Cisco Kid". 13:14, 20 November 2017 (UTC)

Cisco Kid went on to feature in Comics, films and a Depp Purple Song

Cisco Kid also a Sublime song. 15:52, 20 November 2017 (UTC)

I was really looking forward to coming over to and seeing the explanation "We don't get it, either." Disappointed again! Jpd (talk) 14:15, 20 November 2017 (UTC)

I'm surprised Cueball didn't also refer to The Nexus from Star Trek Generations. That's definitely something I wouldn't want to sign up for. Sure, it will speed up your travel, but that assumes you can get out in the first place. Shamino (talk) 14:59, 20 November 2017 (UTC)


Also - how about the Google Android phone? Brettpeirce (talk) 15:53, 20 November 2017 (UTC)
