    • Sick

      Find some pics from the '70s and then look at your parental units — that will give you an idea 😛

    • Jorge V.

      nowadays who has the time for a hairstyle like this?

      • troy

        What's funny is this shit's comming back, every middle school kid wears skinny jeans and loud bright prints just like the 80's.

  • D-Bag Steve

    I feel like if I could go back to the 80s, I could kick all the guys asses and get the finest bitches.

    Hey: the 80-ies were hard on everyone, ok? I have some photos of myself from that decade that would make a lot of these look rather normal.
    # 26 is cool in my book. Look at that jacket 🙂

    • HANK

  • CE25

    #12 I would also hide my face if I were him…

  • Motofoxe

      and #9 definitely has the kind of booty that I could saddle up to!

  • Pufffdragon

    #10 Steve Urkel!
    #28 looks like she wants to run but is held by his awesome virgin grip

    • Choppers

    So I guess the only reason anyone ever got laid back then is because EVERYONE looked weird as hell?!
