Of course. But this is the Argue Thread, after all, and I figured Etch-a-Sketch was funnier. At least for those of us old enough to remember them.

Except for those (who will remain unnamed out of courtesy) who are too old to even remember pencil and paper, and long for the good old days of charcoal on animal skins.

Has anyone else heard of any other Lame ideas used on RV's?
Silver Lamé Jumpsuits?

Here is the argue thread mode:

I don't think Etch-a-Sketch is the least bit funny. In fact I have an excellent sense of humor and didn't even get it.*

Platform shoes, Leisure suits. I'm convinced that some of the fashion and design of the 70's were a direct reflection of a very hung over and over drugged nation from the 60's. Shag carpet. Shag haircut, Ford Pinto, Chevy Vega, talk about LAME.

Lets keep this little list going. Bob you got me started with the Lame' jumpsuits.

Adios,
Dan

Ken, when you are in the "right" frame of mind the Etch a Sketch can be very interesting and amusing

Do I need to start another thread to illustrate bad 70's klitch? Does anyone want to argue about that? Cmon you guys. I'm all ready for Burning Man and bored.

It is not possible for me to be in the right frame of mind. I am left handed.

I despise the 70's. Every time the subject comes up someone drags out a picture of me with a perm and fu manchu moustache.

Ken

Ken, a day spent with me, without the kids, regardless of or because of your left minded thinking and I could have you on the gaucho twisting the knobs with a blissful, bloodshot eyed look on your face.

I never had a perm but did have hair halfway down my back and a full beard for about two years. The 70's were certianly interesting.......not

Shine it on Brotha,

Dan

I sure hope this unfamiliar expression -twisting the knobs- has to do with drugs and not sex.

Yes Ken, It was a test phrase to see where your mind would take it. We know now where your thought process is centered. Drugs and Sex. I'm not so sure I want you sitting on my gaucho. Didn't you grow up in Renton or White Center? That would explain a lot.....

Dan

Hey, I grew up in the posh suburb of Normandy Park with all the other spoiled rich brats. I started my job with the FAA in 1971. I'm sure a lot of people are still alive today, because I've never had much interest in drugs in the 70's. Sex is another matter. I read the other day, that the average male spends 16 hours a day thinking about sex. The other 8, he is dreaming about it.

Ken

Ken, Wow you're pretty old. Normandy Park is still nice down on the water. I think thats where the original "Saltys" seafood restaurant is. This whole area has gotten crowded. It seems like half of California has moved up here in the last 20 years. Buildable land is scarce, zoning is extremely restrictive and real estate is still relatively expensive when making a comparison with other areas of the country. If I could pry my wife out of here I'd be gone in a shot. Was it really Normandy Park? Lots of people say Normandy Park when they mean Burien.......

Oh well, times up, back to thinking about sex.

Adios,
Dan

I get up there a lot, my daughter lives in Bothell, a couple miles from the nicest RV park in the Seattle area. I drove through my old stomping ground last year. Salty's is in Redondo. That's kind of a suburban slum of Normandy Park.

Ken

P.S. Old is a state of mind. I'm still young.

Ken is left handed? So am I, but now, I'm thinking of switching so I can argue with him—maybe I'll type with my feet.
