Splinky - The childhood nickname of Ira Buchman
(John Pankow) mentioned on the sitcom MAD ABOUT
When Ira and his cousin Paul (Paul Reiser) were
little kids they once tried on some female
clothing. As Ira tried on the bottom of a
woman's bikini, his private parts (referred to
as a "Splinky" by the youths) fell out for
confines of the swim suit.
Now that both Paul and Ira are adults, Ira
prefers that Paul not tell the "Splinky" story
to people outside the family, especially not to
Ira's new female companions.
