Q: What does FAB stand for?


Gerry: I put it into the first show of Thunderbirds as I couldn't bear the pilot to say 'Roger, received the message and understood.' In the 1960s the buzzword was fabulous. Everything was fabulous, so instead of 'Roger' I thought they could say 'fab'. Then I heard controller in Thunderbirds say 'reduce height to 1000 feet, fab' and it didn't sound right so I changed it to 'F.A.B.' and that's all there was to it. It doesn't mean anything. But for the last 35 years people keep saying what does it mean so asked the makers of Colllins dictionaries to put it in the dictionary.


how sad =(

I blame YTV.
