When we were growing up, we thought nothing of being obsessed with certain things. There was always some trend going around that hit everyone, and schools were no exception. As soon as it was break or dinner time, we would huddle around in our friendship groups and discuss these novelty crazes, saying how stupid they were but getting totally involved, as kids often do! Yes, we are talking about the weird obsession everyone had with making scoobies and wearing those horrendous ‘GEEK’ tops.
Here are 17+ weird and completely random things that were topics of conversation and which we were obsessed with!
1. This Huge Polo Mint
Talk about supersize – we already had the king size jaw breakers but who had one of these? After fruit Polos (which were my particular favourites) this Super Mint was right up there with them. When I first saw it, I thought it was one huge Polo and the only way I was going to eat it was to divide it into four. I actually stored all my Polo mints in here.
2. Big Fish, Little Fish, Cardboard Box
Who remembers this ridiculous dance that everyone used to do? I swear people used to make up different things that followed on from it. This was the ultimate chav dance at one point. If you learned the moves, then you were the ultimate cool person, in your own mind, that is!
