Slang term around Rochester, NY for Rochester-based company Kodak. Refers both to the distinctive yellow box that Kodak film comes in and Kodak's juggernaut size (before all the layoffs happened). Also carries with it a slight taste of Eastman Kodak being a good provider of sorts, from George Eastman's philanthropy around the community to the possibility, not too long ago, of life employment.

These days, however, Kodak is a shadow of its former self.
