Polaroid pup flashback

The year is 1982. Eye of the Tiger is your favorite tune and all you wanna do is phone home until you get a new puppy then you spend the rest of summer with your new insta camera [In dolphin shorts and Vans.]


Nice one MO'Neal, King of the Polanoids!

AWWW!!! Such cute puppage!

 |  Aug 30, 2007 at 12:43 PM

this is so cute . it could totally be used in advertising. i love it.

 |  Aug 30, 2007 at 12:55 PM

I assume Mr. Puppypants is in heaven now. (man.. I hope I'm not a nuff for saying that!)

Hey.. Polaroids are GREAT.

 |  Aug 30, 2007 at 12:59 PM

Why NSFW? They appear to be knee-length.

Now the puppeh, *that* ain't safe for work. Meltingks, asplosions. Somebody call OSHA.

 |  Aug 30, 2007 at 12:59 PM

i think those dolphin shorts have been re-styles a bit.
i think ours were hi waisted, didnt have a drawstring, and they were made out of either nylon (that was very thin) or some cheap-o shiny stuff that was supposed to look like silk. (oh ya- they were gross) but we thought we were pretty hhhhhot!
AND worn with a tube - top and some nice wedgie sandles OOOOO baby! what a fox!

 |  Aug 30, 2007 at 12:59 PM

i wub when a puppeh has a pink nose

--makes me think he has a cold like when Chilly Willy (http://www.80stees.com/images/products/Heart_Chilly_Willy-JrTee.jpg) would fall through the ice and his friend the dog would pull him out frozen in a block, thaw him and the block out by the fire and then Willy would have a pink nose to indicate he had a cold along with sneezing and blowing and his nose.

my parents didn't let me wear dolphin shorts either 0_o

 |  Aug 30, 2007 at 01:08 PM

oh yeah liz I remember. And yeah we didn't think we were hot we knew it. Our hip huggers, tube tops, body suits, and they're all coming back in style.

That puppy is always in style, I'd wear him anytime.

 |  Aug 30, 2007 at 01:08 PM

gahhhh! stoopit link doesn't work now, try dis one:


 |  Aug 30, 2007 at 01:09 PM

LOL at the hover text!

And LIZ, don't forget the Dr. Scholls.

 |  Aug 30, 2007 at 01:09 PM

Dr. Scholls that claimed to exercise your legs. I need me a pair.
Mini skirts, maxi, midi.

 |  Aug 30, 2007 at 01:11 PM

omg, body suits...

 |  Aug 30, 2007 at 01:17 PM

my shorts back then weren't dolphins...they were "Hang Tens". With the little foots logo and everything...and in satin along with a matching satin trimmed teeny t-top. The bestest things to wear if you had a good tan. And some of my friends wore "titties" shoes. :))

ceejoe, they could be very dangerous you had to be careful with the snap so you didn't take some skin with it. too much info.

 |  Aug 30, 2007 at 01:20 PM

What about jump suits.. was that what they were called? Pants and a shirt all in one?

 |  Aug 30, 2007 at 01:20 PM

well, i didnt get the dr scholls shoes.
my mother about had a hissy when she found out a pair of Sanfrancisco Riding Gear were (freaking out now) ALMOST THRITY DOLLARS!!!!!
so, i didnt get any.
but I did have puppies and kitties and all kinds of pets. so it was all good.:)
oh ya- we did have "earth shoes" that had thick souls in the front and tapered off to zero soul at the heel. oh ya. and Clogs! Crazy weird!

 |  Aug 30, 2007 at 01:22 PM

jump suit's usually came with the "camel toe" hahahaha!

 |  Aug 30, 2007 at 01:23 PM

And i drove Gran Torino...ala Starsky & Hutch. And we tanned with baby oil spice with iodine. Any else remember that?

 |  Aug 30, 2007 at 01:23 PM

;)) i left out a word or two in my previous posts...forgive my haste

DejaMew (tx-usa)
 |  Aug 30, 2007 at 01:25 PM

EEEEH GAD and to think we though we looked good in jump suits. How about the hideous pants suits. In gym we had one piece shirt set blue striped zipper in back. We would turn it around to look cool.

 |  Aug 30, 2007 at 01:26 PM

i had a 72 monte carlo and we "tanned" with baby oil and a spray bottle of water. My BFF used the iodine thing a couple times.
but usually we just layed out and fried our butts all day til we couldnt move.
(stupid) live and learn.
oh. and we drank wine coolers til our heads felt like they were going to explode.

 |  Aug 30, 2007 at 01:26 PM

If this is not the most beautiful puppy ever, it's very close. Man!

What a super-gorgeous face! That face was made to be photographed, branded and licensed.

 |  Aug 30, 2007 at 01:26 PM

Don't forget the sun in for your hair for the lovely orange streaks.

 |  Aug 30, 2007 at 01:29 PM

very sweet pup pic, btw.

My Gran Torino was a 72 and i had a blast with it! Passed it down to my lil sister who'd rather have a truck. :)) She was more tomboy than me. But that was a sweet ride for a high schooler back in the day.

 |  Aug 30, 2007 at 01:31 PM

hey! and the QT for when the sun wasnt HOT enough!

 |  Aug 30, 2007 at 01:31 PM

I still have my pink with blue stripe shorts... I never really wore them, my legs are way too short. I wore Jams. I loved my Jams. Almost as much as I love this puppy!

Yes, my name is really Cricket
 |  Aug 30, 2007 at 01:32 PM

Oh, y'all are talking about the linked shorts, not the shorts on puppeh's human. Nevermind.

I couldn't bring myself to click away from CO when I saw that pupper.

 |  Aug 30, 2007 at 01:34 PM

yep. I used that "Sun-In" product at times and also the clairol home blonde highlights...with the cap and crochet tool to pull hair thru the holes. :))

DejaMew (tx-usa)
 |  Aug 30, 2007 at 01:34 PM

omg, I remember those gym suits! and I'm in Michigan! to think, we all wore those ugly things all over the country!

 |  Aug 30, 2007 at 01:36 PM

ceejoe, I can't believe it you wore them too. I'm from MD. Oh the torture of it. When we started turning the suit around to have the zipper in the front we were sent directly to the showers. slap hand

 |  Aug 30, 2007 at 01:39 PM

but no matter what i was up to, i was always cruising to "Running on Empty" by Jackson Browne...cranked up all the way.

Ahm so in luv with that puppeh.

My unfortunate dolphin shorts were for track team, blue and white striped (school colors, natch) and purchased next door to a Peaches Records and Tapes, so to this day, whenever I hear Billy Squire's opus "The Stroke," I can't help but cringe on many levels. Recently, I saw a picture of myself in them and happily wasn't nearly as chubby as I remember myself being, though!

 |  Aug 30, 2007 at 01:42 PM

Oh wow dejamew, ME too! Oh the days. Marco Polo, Green light red light, kick the can. Hold it I'm giving my age away. No cell phones, tv dinners, no backpacks.

 |  Aug 30, 2007 at 01:43 PM


 |  Aug 30, 2007 at 01:46 PM

no lap tops, dvd players or even vhs tapes! no mp3 players, no cable (when we were very young).

How did we LIVE???

 |  Aug 30, 2007 at 01:53 PM

ugh. culottes. dont get me started.
i got SO teased about the culottes.

 |  Aug 30, 2007 at 01:54 PM

Liz, Amazing isn't it that we got through that awful time. LOL
Didn't need a cell phone when we were little we just came home when the street lights came on.
Elementary school had to wear dresses and pants under them when it was cold. Went to school in the snow, mud, rain.

 |  Aug 30, 2007 at 01:56 PM

Culottes are back in style and have been for some time. They just are called something different.

 |  Aug 30, 2007 at 01:57 PM

Oh, I had the Dr. Scholl clogs with the buckle on them. My friend and I use to kick them in the air to see how far we could make them fly. Well, her's flew behind her head and hit me in the eye. My first and only black eye.

Oh 80's!

 |  Aug 30, 2007 at 02:00 PM

are you talking about skorts?
those lil shorts with a skirt attached?
those are cute!
yep, girls were not allowed to wear pants at school til i was in about 4th grade.
and we DID wear pants under when it was cold, and sometimes shorts under if the dress was too short and you wanted to go on the monkey bars at recess...!

 |  Aug 30, 2007 at 02:02 PM

ooooooooooooooooooh !!

pup perfection !!!!

 |  Aug 30, 2007 at 02:02 PM

omg... i came for the cute puppy and now i'm having neon-madonna-bracelet and spandex bikeshorts worn as clothing flashbacks... gah! oh, bartles and jaymes, how i loved thee.... XD

 |  Aug 30, 2007 at 02:02 PM

Would love to stay and geez but I have to turn off my computer, calculator. Get my cell phone, turn alarm off my car, call in a pizza ..........Oh Yes the 80's.

 |  Aug 30, 2007 at 02:03 PM

NotSupposedToBeDoingThisAtWork -

ugh- the "copy madonna" years.
what the heck were we thinking?
how about the big-long-layered hair, with the stickin-up rooster hair sprayed solid like "working girl" hair do! oh the humanity!!!! make it stop!

 |  Aug 30, 2007 at 02:07 PM

liz, lol! yeah, i love going through the old photo albums, if only to reind myself to never do that again... :D

i don't know about you, but i had "Working Girl" hair PLUS Jersey girl hair... all with lace headband bow thing, of course. also neon.

 |  Aug 30, 2007 at 02:12 PM
