The worst cringe worthy crazes of all time


A poll of 3000 on line shoppers at Grabotnow.com came up with a list of the worst fads of all time and the Mullet with its combination of shorter hair on top and at the sides and a shaggy mane at the back came in number one. No argument from me there.

Here’s the top ten as selected by this poll:

  1. The mullet hairstyle
  2. Shell suits
  3. Crazy Frog ring tone
  4. The bubble perm
  5. Tamagotchi virtual pets
  6. Reality television
  7. The Macarena dance
  8. Ponchos
  9. Adidas popper tracksuits
  10. MySpace, Facebook etc

To me the second worst should be Elephant pants which I at one time owned and they didn't even make the top twenty ...


and I am a little upset that the poll even included Lava Lamps as number 12.


Where else can find bubbles that actually rise and fall with music?

I don't even know what the hell these ones are.

Shell suits
Crazy Frog ring tone
The bubble perm
Adidas popper tracksuits

Though I think you could just call ring tones in general a worthy shit fad. Is it wrong that I want to punch people in the face when they sit and wait for their fucking idiotic lo-fi ring tone to finish before proceeding to have an overloud, inappropriate and annoying conversation in my proximity. In fact, lets just say that cell phones are a curse and their use should be curtailed with extreme prejudice. oh yeah, and get off my lawn you kids...

Apparently a Shell suit is a shiny two piece, glamour track suit. Pic here http://i.dailymail.co.uk/i/pix/2008/05/07/article-1018442-0129209B00000578-215_468x885.jpg

Bubble perm is just that, a tight curled perm in the shape of a bubble on men & women. had one of those in the 70s too.

As for Adidas tracksuits, I don't think you should wear anything with the name of your shoe on it, including a shoe that has it's name on it.

And yes it is probably wrong to punch someone in the face for listening to their ring tone unless it some kind of rap tune and they are doing it on your lawn.

662

That is the number of Syrian refuges that the Harper government has brought into Canada.

From the Globe and Mail:
However, the government is facing criticism because 2,374 Syrian refugees have so far been settled. Of that number, only 622 - or 26 percent - were assisted by the government. The others were privately sponsored by individuals or non-government. The others were privately sponsored by individuals or non-government organizations. The NDP argues that in addition to private sponsors, the government should immediately accept 10,000 Syrian refugees. Liberal leader Justin Trudeau said the target should be 25,000 government-sponsored refugees, which he estimates would cost Ottawa $100-million.In other words the Harper government that banters around the 10,000 plus refugee number has brought in 622 refugees or about 170 families.

The other 2,352 so called refugees that Harper has allowed to emigrate to Canada consist of wealthy Syrian Christians who paid their own way in, hightailing …

Election close call, Omar, Bob and move over Warren

Wow that was a close one:
With the NDP leading in the polls at the beginning of September, I started to prepare myself, for the very first time in my life, to vote for the NDP. Mulcair looked good enough for me, with some of the best lines about Harper's Government during most of his interviews, except that he would always add the phrase, "just like the liberals" to the end of it and I thought, if I'm one of those Harper hating, Liberal voters that you probably need to vote for you, why the hell are you insulting me with this partisan bullshit.
