Are You a Child of the 80s? – Page 1

You made your mom buy one of those clips that would hold your shirt in a knot on the side.

You have ever pondered why Smurfette was the ONLY female smurf.

You wore leg-warmers (or knew someone who did)

You know what "Dealy Boppers" are.

You wore fluorescent, neon clothing.

You own any Spandau Ballet cassettes.

You had plastic streamers on your handle bars... and "spokey-dokes" or playing cards on your bike wheel spokes for that incredible sound effect.

You remember that spiky flat-tops were the rave after Top Gun.

The words 'I'm gonna live forever, I’m gonna learn how to fly' are special to you.

You wore a ponytail on the side of your head.

Ca-vey Wa-vey!" means anything to you.

You know the theme tune and the names of all the actors and characters in Dallas & Dynasty.

Remington makes you think of something other than shaving equipment.

You remember when there was no breakfast TV and when TV shut down at midnight, and when there was nothing on TV in the middle of the day except for that test card girl with the stupid clown and a blackboard.

You thought that Transformers were more than meets the eye.

You wanted to be a Goonie.

You hold a special place in your heart for Back to the Future.

Pong was tops until Donkey-Kong came along, which you thought would never be surpassed.

Two words: Hammer Pants.

You took lunch boxes to school... and traded Garbage Pail Kids in the schoolyard.

You remember what Michael Jackson looked like before his nose fell off and his cheeks shifted.

You owned a pair of Nomads

You rolled your jacket sleeves up to the elbow.

You remember a 'Man's got to chew, what a Man's got to chew'.

You thought Molly Ringwald was REALLY cool.

You can sing the rap to the "Fresh Prince of Belair "...and can do the "Carlton".
