All of us likely will have a little more time to invest in some good old Boob Tube, as we use to call it. Today’s generation now refers to TV as Netflix, Hulu, Disney+, YouTube. How did the Boob Tube get its original name? Well according to the Urban Dictionary

Boob Tube

1) American slang (circa 1980) for the television, and serving as a bargaining tool by parents in disciplining their children, who referred to the time wasted watching it, and lowering their IQ too, hence “boob tube”
