Why Nic Cage?

Why is Nic Cage a synonym for 国宝? And why didn’t anybody bother explaining it in the mnemoics? :persevere:

There is a film series called “national treasure”. Nicolas Cage(Nic Cage) plays the main character of said film series, I believe.

“Why is this vacuum cleaner a national treasure?” “Because Nic Cage used it before.”

That example sentence is pretty unbelievable. Since when has Nicolas Cage ever needed an appliance to help him suck?

It’s just like “the answer” being a synonym for 四十二. Pop culture reference.

The 42 one is, as far as I can tell, quite widely known (Maybe I only talk to people who read the books, or whatever), but I hadn’t even heard about that movie before :sweat_smile:
