Does anyone know what "you're out of ointment and out of time" means?
I might be wrong, but I think I have a vague memory of playing a weird game when I was a kid, where you have to pilot a plane around the USA. There were various games, I believe, and one was states and capitals I think, and another game I don't remember at all, but you were supposed to fly around, I think, and I think two weird-looking guys explained how to play it, and if you lost, they would say in a funny voice, "You're out of fuel and out of time!!"
I have thought many times that this was a reference to that, but I have no idea what that game was. I've looked for explanations many times, but no one has ever said this. Maybe I'm wrong, maybe that's not even what happens in that game...but I think it was.
