Spuds MacKenzie - you know you're old when...

Today I was talking with a young woman in her 20's, and the conversation turned to "attack breed" dogs - specifically pit bulls.  Somehow we got stuck on the difference between pit bulls, bull terriers, and pit bull terriers.

At the same time we each pulled a popular iconic dog into the conversation:

Her:  "like the Target dog!"

Me:  "like Spuds MacKenzie!" said with the conviction of this being common knowledge.

She looked at me like I had a 3rd eye and spoke a foreign language.

Her:  "Who?"

Spuds MacKenzie

The more I explained Spuds...

"you know, The Original Party Animal, Bud Light, from the 80's."

...the more I knew I was in trouble!

Your feels the need to watch "Remember the 80's" on VH-1 Realtor,
