What C47 Means on the Film Production Set
Ryan: Hi Bingo.
Bingo: Hi Ryan. How was your weekend?
Ryan: Very bad. I was grilling hamburger sandwiches on the barbeque when a skunk walked into the yard.
Bingo: Oh, gosh! Then what happened?
Ryan: Nothing good, I tell you. Do you know how to get a skunk to stop smelling?
Bingo: No, I sure don’t, Ryan. How do you get a skunk to stop smelling?
Ryan: Just put a clothes pin on his nose.
Bingo: Ryan, did you know that clothes pins have many uses?
Ryan: Well, I know Bingo, I didn’t.
Bingo: They do. For one, my mom uses them to hang up my under panties.
Ryan: I love your Mom.
Bingo: Me too. Clothes pins also have uses on film sets which brings us to Bingo’s Lingo’s Thingo up a day.
The letter C stands for C-47 which is film set lingo for a clothes pin—used them to hold jilts in front of lights and because they’re wood, they don’t heat up. So, you don’t need gloves to touch them.
Ryan: Is that right? But how come they call them C-47 though?
Bingo: Well, it’s probably so that they have a technical mean so they’re on the budget sheets that produce clothes pins. What do I have to buy this for?
Ryan: But if she sees C-47, she’ll think it’s something important and technical?
Bingo: Yap! Clothes pins are also called Bullets because of the way they grips, clip them into their belts so they’re always handy. The way that old west cowboys stored bullets in their belt in case they needed to put bullets in their gun so they could shoot a prostitute in—because she laughed in his—when she was in a hot—up in an old brass back top.
