Friday Funnies - on Saturday!

Since my friend Kim from Homesteaders Heart also "unplugged" yesterday, she's having Friday Funnies today. Since I am plugged back in with nothing going on, I can actually participate! Stop over at her place for lots more funnies and get some laughs for your weekend!

This was from an e-mail that I got. I was a child in the 70's and 80's, so I have seen the list of 70's items that are familiar to me. Now here's the list of items from the 80's that you might remember. It really makes me laugh because too many of them are true!

1. You've ever ended a sentence with the word SIKE.
2. You can sing the rap to the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air and can do the Carlton.
3. You know that "WOAH" comes from Joey on Blossom.
4. If you ever watched "Fraggle Rock".
5. It was actually worth getting up early on a Saturday to watch cartoons.
6. You wore a ponytail on the side of your head.
7. You got super-excited when it was Oregon Trail day in computer class at school.
8. You made your mom buy one of those clips that would hold your shirt in a knot on the side.
9. You played the game "MASH"(Mansion, Apartment, Shelter, House).
10. You wore stonewashed Jordache jean jackets and were proud of it.
11. You know the profound meaning of " WAX ON , WAX OFF".
12. You wanted to be a Goonie.
13. You ever wore fluorescent clothing. (some of us...head-to-toe)
14. You can remember what Michael Jackson looked like before his nose fell off and his cheeks shifted.
15. You have ever pondered why Smurfette was the only female smurf.
16. You took lunch boxes to school...and traded Garbage Pailkids in the schoolyard.
17. You remember the CRAZE, then the BANNING of slap bracelets.
18. You still get the urge to say "NOT" after every sentence.
19. You thought your childhood friends would never leave because you exchanged handmade friendship bracelets.
21. You ever owned a pair of Jelly-Shoes.
22. After you saw Pee-Wee's Big Adventure you kept saying "I know you are, but what am I?"
23. You remember "I've fallen and I can't get up".
24. You remember going to the skating rink before there were inline skates.
25. You have ever played with a Skip-It.
26. You remember boom boxes and walking around with one on your shoulder like you were all that.
27. You remember watching both Gremlins movies.
28. You thought Doogie Howser/Samantha Micelli was hot.
29. You remember Alf, the lil furry brown alien from Melmac.
30. You remember New Kids on the Block when they were cool...and don't even flinch when people refer to them as "NKOTB"
31. You knew all the characters names and their life stories on "Saved By The Bell," The ORIGINAL class.
32. You know all the words to Bon Jovi - SHOT THROUGH THE HEART.
33. You just sang those words to yourself.
34. You still sing "We are the World"
35. You tight rolled your jeans.
36. You owned a banana clip.
37. You remember "Where's the Beef?".
38. You used to (and probably still do) say "What you talkin' 'bout Willis?".
39. You're still singing shot through the heart in your head, aren't you!


How many are true for you? I think at least 28 of them are true for me. Do I dare admit to #30??

Hope you got a laugh or two from some of these memories! Have a great weekend!!


  1. OH girl,I did 95% of those lol. I still have a We are the World Record! LOL. Just can't let it go!
    Big fluorescent hugs to you my sweet friend.

  2. okay -- now that song is stuck in my head ... Shot through the heart and you're to blame..... and when I finally get it to stop I end up singing We are the World...

    Thanks for the fun

  3. Fun trip down memory lane! Thanks for the smiles. :-D

  4. Yes, I remember well these things! Too funny!

  5. So now you are to blame for getting that song stuck in my head! Too funny my friend! I loved my jelly shoes! But NKOTB...not so much :o)

  6. I remember these things but more from a big sister perspective - oh you kids of the 80's. Don't you know the 70's rule? Just kidding.

  7. What a generation to revel about....

    My favorite thing was having all different kinds of shoe laces with designs/pictures on them or just bright fluorescent ones. Friendship pins put on your shoes was pretty cool, too. They wouldn't be good for metal detectors in high schools today.

    New Kids on the Block and Manudo plus MJ were ok..... I had a friend who was so obsessed with them all that I wanted to throw her MJ gloves in the mud every chance I got. My favorite of all was the "Valley Girl Talk" My kids laugh and then roll their eyes when I converse with them in this pathetic language from time to time!

    Fabulous post!

  8. I can't believe how many of those I identify with, scary! thanks for a great laugh today!

  9. Still singing! This is a great list! I just recently explained "tight rolling your jeans" to my 18 year old niece. She looked at me like I was crazy! Won't it be interesting for the children of today to make lists in the future?

  10. Wow. I was 10 when the 80's hit so I came up through all of those! And I'm still give luvvvvvvvv...a BAD name, LOL!!!!! I loved them! Thanks for sharing this.

  11. Those are great. I just recently watched a Doogie Howser episode just to see if I remembered what it was like.... Not what I would let my children watch.... Anyway, that was a great list... Have a good week with your dad.
