It's round and wobbles, but madam, it's a mouse pad, not a floppy disk

The first DVD movies were mainly double sided, this was back when many players (or perhaps it was manufacturing?) couldn't process dual layer, you would have double sided single layer discs, commonly called "flippers". Annoying as hell to get up and turn the disc over, plus there was very few marks on the disc itself to see what the movie was in the first place.
