    Heck the adult "men" are drooling over her.

    5) salt-water swimming pools
    Hadn't heard of this one (and sounds like a pain to maintain).

    Hybrids (not SUV's thanks to gas topping 2-2.50 a gal)

    Yep, the ribbons-I do have one...but haven't put it on my car yet-my brother in law and cousin are both serving in Iraq.

    and all those blow up Griswold Christmas yard ornaments...I can see one or two but we have some people with up to ELEVEN huge blow ups in thier yard!

    low, Low, LOW rise pants and baby shirts..I can live without that especially since many of these girlies shouldn't be showing off those belly rolls like that.

    and one last fad...what's with the hat wearing sideways all funky wicky thing?

    Merry Christmas :hatparty:

    People can keep Paris Hilton. I don't know what guys see in her. She painfully thin!

    2) those funky looking glass balls for your yard
    3) underwear hanging outta your britches

    Who can forget the EXTENSIVE and BORING discussion of Janet's "wardrobe malfunction"? Now people are claiming "malfunction" for all sorts of things to get out of responsiblity. THE catchphrase of 2004 MUST be "malfunction"! UGH UGH UGH

    I agree with you, don't know what people see in her. I won't go any further and say what i really think of her otherwise i will start a whole new debate!!

    PH resembles a carrot. There IS such thing as too much of Mystic tan, unfortunately no one has informed her of this.

    3) underwear hanging outta your britches
    That always amazed me, because if it's hanging out then it's really not UNDERWEAR anymore.

    You said it! I certainly hope we can forget that along with the word "snafoo." I'm hearing that more and more and I'm already sick of it, especially in the media. What's wrong with "error" or "mistake"?

    Other fads I can think of are awards shows and red carpet events for everything and shows counting down the 50 greatest whatever. I'm afraid programming has become so bankrupt that we're going to be stuck with nothing but "reality" tv and the "50 greatest countdown shows of all time."
