Was Anything Weirder Than the 80s!?

Damn the 80’s were just straight batshit. No wonder no one threw a net over Boy George and Michael Jackson. The only smart thing to do in the 80s was jump in a Delorean and get your ass to a saner decade.

    Cable TV had just barely started, a computer came with a cassett deck (no internet), & everybody rollerskated… These people’s best available entertainment was miami vice, love boat and knight rider. IF YOU WANTED PORN YOU HAD TO BUY A MAGAZINE !?!?!?!?!

    To those who were alive then, did it seem odd at the time?

       Only when the commercialism went cult… pacman fever, cabbage patch, rubix cube, swatch, smurfs, bennetton, etc.  Otherwise, lawyers hadn’t ruined all fun yet, kids played hard outside with only a few available electronic distractions. I think we were better off & healthier pre-techno-boom.

       @schadenfreudian you can’t deny the smile that calms over your face when you think of the decadence of the 80s.

         @archg2 If by “smile” you mean “bad fart scowl” then, I agree.

       @MoeSzyslak01 Can you believe he included that shot in his resume!?  You can imagine how disappointed poor Fezzy was when he saw him in person.

    The 80’s weren’t so bad. Designated smoking areas in high school, real album rock stations, quaaludes, and they finally started making jeans to fit girls. And oh how they fit. Anyone remember Jordache jeans?

         Nahh The 90’s was a bunch of pseudo grunge jerkoffs. and they got chineese letters and “tribal band” tats. I make sure to tell someone I see with a tribal band around their arm how cool that was in 1994.
