It's a play on the slang term, "beer goggles".

EDIT: If you do not know what beer goggles are, then you need to pick up the drinking my friend.

The Simpsons. Rainier Wolfcastle says it when they're filming Radioactive Man. A vat of acid is coming towards him as they're waiting for Fallout Boy to rescue him, he puts on the goggles, and gets swept away by the acid. "My eyes! The goggles do NOTHING!"

The next scene is to be filmed in the nuclear plant.

Director: OK, listen up, everybody: this is the hardest, most expensive scene in the movie, and we only get one shot at it, so we have to do it right. Fallout Boy will untie Radioactive Man and pull him to safety moments before he's hit with a forty-foot wall of sulfuric acid that will horribly burn everything in its path. Now, that's real acid, so I want to see goggles, people!
[everyone puts them on]
Rainier: [tied up] Real acid?

"OK, roll film...tip the acid vats...and -- action!" A fire lights up
around Rainier as he laments, "Ach...only Fallout Boy can save me now."
The director calls, "Where's Fallout Boy?" Rainier gasps as the acid
flies toward him. "Fallout Boy!" calls the director. "Uh oh," says
Rainier, putting on goggles. The acid hits him full force and carries
him off, leaving a burning dent in the pillar where he was tied. "My
eyes...the goggles do nothing!" The wave of acid deposits him through a
trailer wall, burning his pants off as a final insult.
