Wow, that is one preachy teeny-bopper!

Instead of concentrating on the death of authentic values, and the rise of crass commercialism, I might choose instead to point out that those are the UGLIEST FUCKING THINGS I've ever seen attached to a teenager that wasn't a pimple, or Ron Jeremy.

So what do do we have now, the "Gimme everything before I kill you" generation? That would seem to be the logical progression.

That was the Greatest Generation. The current generation is the Please Don't Bring Back Debtor's Prison Generation.

How bout those crazy Texas mums!

We didn't do any of this gay stuff in the 90's.
Thank you Curt Cobain.

Texas did, despite Gibby and David Yow's best efforts.

I can only hope that something akin to the South Sea or Tulip Bubble occurred in this town. The local florist or craft shop invested heavily in mum and mum-related decoration, and was ruined when the bottom dropped out.

Or, better yet, someone spent their college fund money on the biggest mum available, precisely at the point that it was no longer cool.

Sadly, it looks like the tradition is still going strong:

THey went from the biggest mums to the biggest moms.

Interestingly enough, Texas teens look *EXACTLY* the same 24 years later. Its a fact!

I am British and was briefly confused by the idea of people wearing their mothers.

Its hard to think that I was around at this time. I spent most of my time in the arcade, but I was there. How terrible we all looked.
