Remember when the most people on this site in one day was about 60?
Today it says the most people in one day is 1023. WOW! This site has grown!

When I saw the title I thought of this :teehee:

Remember when HIPPIE meant big in the hips
And a TRIP involved travel, in cars , planes and ships?
When POT was a vessel for cooking things in
And HOOKED was what grandmother's rug might have been?
When FIX was a verb that meant mend or repair
And BE IN meant simply existing somewhere?
When NEAT meant well-organised, tidy and clean
And GRASS was a ground cover, normally green
When lights and not people were TURNED ON and off
And the PILL might have been what you took for a cough!
And CAMP meant to quarter out-doors in a tent
And POP was the way that the weasel went?
When GROOVY meant furrowed with channels and hollows,
And BIRDS were winged creatures like FINCHES and SWALLOWS?
When FUZZ was a substance that's fluffy like lint,
And BREAD came from bakeries, not from the mint?
When SQUARE meant a 90-degree angled form
And COOL was a temperature not quite so warm?
When ROLL meant a bun, and ROCK was a stone,
And HANG_UP as something you did to the phone?
When FUZZ was a substance that's fluffy like lint,
And BREAD came from bakeries, not from the mint?
When SQUARE meant a 90-degree angled form
And COOL was a temperature not quite so warm?
When ROLL meant a bun, and ROCK was a stone,
And HANG_UP was something you did to a phone?
When JAM was conserves that you spread on your bread
And CRAZY meant barmy, not right in the head?
When CAT was a feline - a kitten grownup
And TEA was a liquid you drank from a cup?
When SWINGER was someone who swung in a swing
And PAD was a soft sort of cushiony thing?
When WAY OUT meant distant and far, far away?
And a man couldn't sue you for calling him GAY
When DIG meant to shovel and spade in the dirt
And PUT-ON was something you did with a shirt?
When TOUGH described meat too unyielding to chew
And MAKING A SCENE was a rude thing to do?
Words once so sensible, sober and serious
Are making the FREAK SCENE quite PSYCHEDELIIOUS
It's GROOVY MAN GROOVY But English it's not
Me thinks that our language has gone straight to POTů.

I don't remember any of those things, Jan. :teehee:

I don't buy it, either. Slang is eternal. :teehee:

I'm with Jan on this one! What started flying around in my head were things like... $.40 a gallon for gas.... $.89 a pound for hamburger.... $.25 for the buns...

They say if you can remember the '60s, then you probably weren't there :)

The little slang thing made it sound like before the 50's, no one every talked in slang. My point is that people were always talking in slang (try reading Dickens sometimes-or Shakespeare! :teehee:), the words have just changed.

Really? When was the last time you birds wore your psychedelic bells?

I was a 60's child (actually young married) and I do remember it. Vividly (not acid-vivid).

Heh, well, I was just going by what the infernal "They" say.
