Throwback Thursday: Phrases From Our Past That Should Come Back
Throwback Thursday is here.... Today we wanted to know, what are phrases from back in the day, that should be brought back now?
JStew: Man, in some ways this was tough. Mostly because I have ADHD, and as soon as I try to actually think of something, it leaves my brain at warp speed. Although, when I was a kid, I went with the things I knew. I watched a lot of TV, like most kids in my generation, so that's where my most memorable ones came from. Like Hannibal from A-Team... I used to constantly say, "I love it when a plan comes together." Or I'd watch Diff'rent Strokes, and overused this one quite a bit..."Whatchu talkin' about Willis?" Or after seeing Robocop, I was often heard repeating, "I'd buy that for a dollar!" But out of all my childhood ramblings, the only one really worth bringing back is from the song "Valley Girl" by Frank Zappa....."Gag me with a spoon!" Yeah... that should definitely come back.
Cori: I feel like some of the catchphrases I use, never really went away...at least for me...but maybe that's because I'm weird. Some of the favorites, which I use on the regular, are:
*Hey you guys! (From The Goonies)
*I'll be back! (From The Terminator)
*Bueller...Bueller...Bueller (From Ferris Bueller's Day Off)
Now, I've also been known to throw out a "Duh!" a "Grody!" or a "Resistance Is Futile"--mostly because I have children, and I feel those are entirely appropriate for almost every situation I encounter with them.
But there were some on this list, like "Cowabunga" that I'd gladly see make a return!
Some of these are true gems that should absolutely be brought back immediately. While others, it's understandable why they went away, haha. Let's check them out.
