You remember when you could drink and drive.

You remember when bell bottoms and mullets were cool.

If you thought M.A.S.H. 4077 was highly advanced storytelling and loved the characters to bits and pieces and saw every episode you could, even the third time the series went on tv. Although you wondered if there ever was going to be a shot fired and how they could come up with a character as unreal as Corporal Klinger.

you watched Warner Brothers cartoons unedited/cut in full and found them hilarious, growing up unscathed by their 'violence'.

(PS:  Captain; depends on where you live. I know someone or several someone's rather like Klinger. While very odd and extremely funny, they are really rather terrific people.  It's possible.  Draw from real life.... it makes for the best writing.)

(Trust me, there were noone like Klinger in my world where I grew up. A man in a woman's clothes? As outrageous a sight as a man in a suit on a weekday...)

Remembering Top 40 groups and artists noone else seem to. Hermans Hermits, anyone? Harry Bellafonte? Falco?

Monkees were fun. Hard to think that Rolling Stones became popular at the same time as them.
