I can remember when it was without the first '1' tongue '0818118181'

That makes me... hang on... Worse than the rest of you?

Damn. biggrin

Some of the other stuff is still applicable today though... I could get 10p Space Raiders from school til I left in 2004. Maybe they were working through the stockpiles ubblol

It was so much catchier without that extra '1' in there!

Posted:OMG... Sharky and George!

I had one of these the other day with some other points on it aswell. I shall try and dig it up!



Edit: found it:

You can sing the rap to "The Fresh Prince Of Bel Air".



You've worn leggings and felt stylish.



You yearned to be part of the Baby-Sitters club.



You use to love playing with your MY Little Pet Shop.



You remember when it was actually worth getting up early on a Saturday to watch cartoons.



You wore a ponytail on the side of your head and had scrunchies.



You remember reading "Goosebumps".

You know the profound meaning of "Wax on, wax off".



You have pondered why Smurfette was the only female smurf.



You took plastic cartoon lunch boxes to school.



You remember the craze then the banning of yo-yo's.



You still get the urge to say "NOT" after (almost) every sentence...Not...



You knew that Kimberly, the pink ranger, and Tommy, the green Ranger were meant to be together.



You collected pokemon cards.



You wore socks over leggings scrunched down.



You knew what it meant to say "Care Bear Stare".



You knew all the characters names and their life stories on "Saved By The Bell".



You played and or collected "Pogs".

You used to pretend to be a MIGHTY MORPHIN Power Ranger.



You had at least one GigaPet or Nano and brought it everywhere



You watched the ORIGINAL Care Bears, My Little Pony, and Ninja Turtles



Yikes pencils and rubbers were the [censored].



You remember when the new Beanie Babies were always sold out.



You used to wear those stick on earings, not only on your ears,but at the corners of your eyes.



You've gotten creeped out by "Are You Afraid of the Dark?"



You thought it would be so cool to be Alex Mack.



You know the Macarena by heart.



"Talk to the hand" ... enough said.



You thought Brain from 'Pinkey and the Brain' would finally take over the world.



You were made to wear a pair of leggings with the straps on the bottom.



Bum Bags, or Fanny Pax whatever you called them.



You collected tazos.



ubblove
