90's Things We All Wish Were Still Socially Acceptable

- Page 1

If chokers can make a comeback, why can't something else?

The 90's were filled with a myriad of incredible trends with enough variety to please everyone.

But when Y2K happened, it's like no one ever cared about jelly shoes and slap bracelets anymore. Things changed, man. People got tech-savvy and everyone started paying attention to personal style and what's "cool."

Here are some of our favorite things from the 90's that we wish still had a place in our world.

1. Yelling "NOT!" after complimenting someone.

The ultimate roast. The ol' switcharoo. Making someone think you complimented them and then snatching that joy away with a simple word. No matter how many times you used this one it never got old.

2. Pushing People Into Pools

If you do this now, you better hope you have an extra $600 lying around to pay for their cellphone. And the thousands of dollars for the inevitable lawsuit that will come your way.

3. Wearing Visors

Sometimes it's just too hot for a full hat okay? And some of us may or may not have large heads that prohibit the proper wearing of a normal baseball cap. Does that mean we should have to be blinded by the sun? NO!

4. Middle Parts

Middle parts were just easier. They framed your face nicely and allowed for optimal "hands through the hair" conditions. Somehow over the years it turned into a "nerd" thing. Shawn Hunter was no nerd, let me tell ya.

5. Looney Tunes T-Shirts

There is absolutely nothing wrong with displaying your support for Space Jam while also being wildly comfortable. In fact, I think we should all be required to wear Looney Tunes t-shirts once a week. It'll bring down stress levels immensely.*

6. The Macarena

You can pretend you hated it all you want, but The Macarena was a staple in all dance repertoires. If you could do this, you could fit in at any party. It's easy, it's fun, and you can do it while not-sober. Ideal.

7. The Whatever Fingers

Easily the best way to blow someone off. Too bad it's not as well known anymore. If you made a W with your fingers now, people would have no idea what you mean. "What's that? Waluigi? Water? Washington?"

But that's not the only thing we wish we could still get away with...

20 Pages From The 1991 Wish Book That Will Make You Feel Like A Kid Again

Sears Wish Books were basically the best thing ever. I think we can all agree that when we would receive them in the middle of summer we would immediately start planning our Christmas lists. Some kids would start marking up the pages even before our parents could see it. They probably didn't love when we would do that, but we got it first! We have already shown you a few other Wish Books, including 1983 and 1990, but what did Christmas wish lists look like in 1991? Wish Book WebYou've got to be excited if it is in the Super
