26. You have ever pondered why Smurfette was the only female smurf.

Hell, I did that in the 70s when I use to read the books in French and they were known as Les Schtroumpfs. Always preferred that term as you could make much more interesting sentences like:

"Schtroumpf-toi! Je vais schtroumpfer le schtroumpf avec mon schtroumpf!"


53. You remember New Kids on the Block when they were cool

New Kids On The Block were never cool.

59. You remember when mullets were cool!

Mullets were never cool.

66. You had big hair

Now big hair, THAT was cool...NOT!

:P)

As one who grew up in Nebraska in the 80's, I beg to differ. A mullet with a rat tail was even cooler.Posted Image I'm thinking of sporting the look again.

This list is trying to cater to both Gen-X'ers and those punks from the 90's. I'm sorry but there is a definite line between my MTV generation (as in MUSIC television) and those poser, wannabe's from the 90's.:P) Posted Image

That's all I know, although I don't think NKOTB nor mullets were ever cool. The other stuff I have no clue about.

You owned a "Members Only" jacket.

You owned a "Def Leppard" t-shirt (preferably with no sleeves)

You ripped holes in your new jeans (and made sure they were frayed!)- cutting the legs off your jeans and/or putting them in the washer with bleach also qualifies.

You remember the words to "Eye of the Tiger" and you know who the hell "Survivor" was.

You listened to Dr. Demento.

Guilty as charged :b


You took desecration of your "PeeChee" folder very seriously.

You air guitar'd to every song you could.

You played sessions of 'flinch' that would last semesters.

This thing looks like a job application for a "Family Guy" writer. Notice that "you can write comedy" is nowhere on the list.
Don't you ever, EVER compare me to "Family Guy," you hear me Kyle? Compare me to "Family Guy" again and so help me, I will kill you where you stand!

Do you have any idea what it's like? Everywhere I go: "Hey Cartman you must like 'Family Guy,' right?" "Hey, your sense of humor reminds me of...

55. You know all the words to Bon Jovi - SHOT THROUGH THE HEART.


I never owned one of their albums, but I clearly remember that song.


56. You just sang those words to yourself.


As soon as I read Number 55 I started "singing" that song in my head (seeing if I actually knew the words after hearing the song & seeing the video constantly during the time). I stopped after the beginning chorus to return reading the rest of the list then got nabbed with Number 56. :b
