An 80's Day Here At Play!

The cat will go back in time with this rip off chime. Stephanie Faris likes the 80's judging from her A to Z. So how can that not be used by me. Weren't the 80's grand? If you don't remember, I'll help you out in my land.

 Q-tips people started using.
I guess they were confusing.
In which hole do they go?
The 80's sure didn't know.

 A pinball need to get back.
Damn, give that sucker a whack.
Hit it at 88mph though.
The 80's sure had places to go.

 The fashion was great.
Dressed up in crocodile, mate!
With teeth in your hat,
The 80's chewed some fat.

Rednecks were in.
They all went for a spin.
With windows wielded shut.
The 80's weren't in a rut.

 The games were great.
There were top rate.
Shoot at the screen.
80's dogs were mean.

 Red was in.
 Like helmets from a trash bin.
The sky may start falling.
The 80's weren't stalling.

  Dress all the same.
Individuality was lame.
And not just any type.
The 80's sure were ripe.

 No need to shave at all.
 Instead, look menacing at your hall.
Save on razors too.
The thrifty 80's through and through.

 Suck back your face.
A common embrace.
So was the bow tie.
The 80's invented this guy.

And finally it came.
 The game not so tame.
When someone did linger,
The 80's invented pull my finger.

Now the cat is through. Enjoy the 80's trip at my zoo? The cat wasn't even around then. I heard it passed down from mutts at my den. Would they ever lie? Without a reason why. But I'll believe their 80's sass. It is just too fun not to for my little rhyming ass.

Fill your rummer, get drunk all summer.

  4. I lived through that.
    You forgot 80's music, especially hair metal. That's probably the reason for the hole in the ozone.

    1. haha well they say the ozone hole is getting smaller
      So maybe it was as their hair grew taller

  5. That was a trip through the past
    All the fads never last
    Was Michael Jackson at his best
    Did he always wear a vest
    Men really liked to perm their hair
    Was it something in the air
    Maybe the 70's, I can't remember
    Things often happen in September

    1. Haha never perm my hair
      That would just scare

  16. Oh, the 80's way too much fun and silliness. I'll be candid in saying that I totally forgot about one or two of these (Teen Wolf in particular).

    ReplyDelete

    1. haha Teen Wolf is forgettable though
      Two is even worse of a show

      Delete
  17. I only know a few of these, and not even that well. Et I know as I used it to scare my brother. The 3 musketeers I've seen once..I think. And Teen Wolf I heard of when they made the remake. Lol jax failed at this rip off.

  24. The 80's weren't my decade and the popular culture of the time passed me by. I was in University, working, married and generally being responsible full time. I didn't like the music and I didn't like the fashion. Television for me was things like Blackadder, The Young Ones, Red Dwarf, A bit of Fry and Laurie etc. British comedy was the only good thing about the 80's. That and meeting The Hubby.

    1. No time when on the go
      I wasn't born until half way through at my show
      So yeah, just what I sea

    ReplyDelete
  33. YAY, I got a mention! Yes, you're a youngster. The 80s were fun, but it's like the 50s...it's more fun in retrospect than when you were actually living them. When you remember them looking back, you remember all of the over-the-top stuff, like how people dressed and how crazy the music was!

  35. Ah yes, the 80's! Who knew we'd survive them and look back with fondness or rhyme? Not me. But Q Tips are a heck of lot easier to see than metal everywhere. Wait until this generation looks back at those beaded tongues. I can hear it now. "Hey, Mom, what was that about anyway?" *Chuckles*

  38. I love the eighties and all that hair
    I lived that time and had fun at my lair.
    I did not use hair spray nor acid wash jeans.
    I found that too ugly as well as those heavy metal scenes.
    I do love the music and films of that time ago.
    fond memories of my 20's, vodka and merlot.
