For those of you not old enough to remember the late 80s-early 90s, it was filled with strange things like big hair, mullets, Pac-Man, Extra Terrestrials, the Sony Walkman and that damn Rubix cube that I could only get two sides of the same color.
It was also filled things like a Cabbage Patch dolls, Glow Worms, Pound Puppies and Masters of the Universe.
People like The Fresh Prince, MacGyver, B.A. Baracus, Alf, Crocket and Tubbs were on the television and almost everyone knew what show starts with, “Show me that smile again… ”
Air Jordan’s had just taken flight and things like parachute pants, jelly shoes, leg warmers and Member’s Only jackets were all the fashion rage.
For those of us who DO remember that time, think about how long it has been since you’ve seen some of those things. Sure, you might catch the occasional episode of “Growing Pains” on TV Land but most of those items are buried in the past forever.
So imagine my surprise when I saw something straight out of that era walking through my neighborhood the other day. I was more surprised at what it was than I was with WHO had it.
I’ve written about our dislike for “Camaro Boy” in an earlier post entitled, “Don’t Touch My Wife’s P^ssy!” but even I didn’t expect to see him walking his dog wearing these…
When’s the last time you saw a pair of tight rolled jeans strolling through your neighborhood?
Guess I shouldn’t really be surprised considering Camaro Boy proudly prowls the neighborhood in one of these… when he’s not riding a bicycle or scooter.
Are you kidding me? When my kids had 80s day at school, I tried to get them to let me peg their jeans and they wouldn’t let me do it. That guy looks like he’s cut the circulation in his legs off.
When I first saw him round the corner I thought he had on baggy sweatpants but as he got closer I couldn’t believe what I was seeing and grabbed my camera.
He isn’t doing it right- all the cool kids used safety pins to peg their jeans. Gheesh.
Does he wear a swatch watch?
I guess I wasn’t cool because I never used safety pins, but I DID have a swatch watch. It was all black and the only way to tell time on it was to hold it at an angle in the light. Yeah, I definitely wasn’t cool. hahaha…
He pegs his jeans!!! priceless. coolest guy on the block.
He MAY be cool, but we doubt it. We don’t like him at all. I don’t like him for driving a Camaro while blasting Pet Shop Boys. Tammy doesn’t like him for different reasons… haha…
Just looking at him makes me think he’s a douche. The pegged jeans don’t help.
Oh. My. Gosh. : |
“Pegged” jeans requiring safety pins? Uh, no, it’s called tight-rolled and there were no tools required. #yankees
Wow. Just wow.
You forgot to mention the tamagachi. Looking like that, I doubt that man gets laid.
I recall the process of tight rolling my jeans being incredibly agonizing. Why would you put yourself through that just to be made fun of… on the internet no less.
