Tickle-Me-Elmo was just the popular toy one Christmas season that everyone wanted and as often happened with those things, American parents decide that they've somehow let their child down if they don't get them the big popular toy of the season, which led to people fighting over them. I worked at Toys R Us in the stock room that year. I should have stolen a box, I had my hands on one once coming off the truck, I probably could have made $10,000 on eBay.
Therefore, I think "Hampster Dance" should be allowed.
And I saved these for last just because they made me laugh, but what about pogs?
And a few things I left out: crystal pepsi, America Online, Stater jackets, and the color teal. In the early to mid 1990s used the color due to the fad, from the Charlotte Hornets of the NBA, the Florida Marlins and Seattle Mariners (who existed before the '90s but adopted teal in that decade) of MLB, the San Jose Sharks in the NHL, and the Carolina Panthers and Jacksonville Jaguars in the NFL. And why the NFL decided to introduce two southern teams who were both named after large jungle cats and both wore teal is a mystery to me. I know people who still confuse them (though I must admit, I am not one of those people).
(Also note the lack of an apostrophe in SUVs, since it's not possessive. One of my biggest grammar peeves.)
Over here, overalls means the same as boiler suit whereas dungarees have the straps and don't cover your arms.
I guess overall means literally that - over all of your body.
Except your head.
