Pop Culture Made Me Do It

Pop culture is a crazy thing. Random blips come into fad-dom and are almost immediately replaced by "the next big thing". It's a vicious cycle. 

Even though I participated in most of these, they make me question society.

1/  The Macarena 
Seriously. Why was this a thing? Don't get me wrong, I macarena'd with the best of them when I was in Jr. High (because that's how old this shit is) but again, why people?!

2/  Acid Washed Anything
I can't wrap my head around this one. Acid wash looks terrible. It doesn't matter what it is, it looks like you got in a fight with Clorox. 

3/  Colored Ketchup
What asshat came up with this? No really. Colored ketchup. Just googling this makes me want to spew my delicious Ben & Jerry's all over the place. 

4/  Lucite Heels
There is no faster way to show the world that you do things for money than by wearing lucite shoes. 

As much as I could continue to go on with the mistake of American society, I can't. It's honestly making my brain, and eyes, hurt, to know that all of these things were once super popular. Obviously I left out Tomagatchi's because, hello they were awesome!

What are some of the fads you would shame us for?
