Large vehicles, vaguely reminiscent of personal Zamboni
s, which are ostensibly used to clear snow. Typically driven by a small, off-duty Czechoslovakian traffic warden
, an ice polisher is actually used to achieve the optimum ice texture for causing freshmen
to scream "Damn, that makes my ass hurt!
". This is about halfway between teflon
and a banana peel
, and is the result of thousands of wizened penguin
compacting the topmost layer of snow into the ice substrate. Fleets of them can be found on the Purdue University
campus during the winter months.
