A Collection of the Best 1990s Memes

Growing up in the 1990s didn’t make us special. I’m not mad at these “damn kids today” because they don’t know what dial-up is. I’m thrilled for them. It was horrible. Nobody deserves that.

Nevertheless, it hits some sweet, sweet spot in the brain to let memes transport us back to a time in our history that seems to have been curated entirely by that orange Nickelodeon blob guy.

I wonder what he’s up to. I hope he’s found work. Let’s reminisce with some 90’s memes in his honor.

15. I didn’t even have cable, so even this felt like luxury

14. Nobody ever bought these, they just sort of appeared

13. Seeing this meme is how I learned there’s a Rugrats reboot coming

12. The higher the hair the closer to God

11. This was broken 10 minutes in

10. Back when things were “on” at a “certain time”

9. Give your little brother the bad controller

8. I had two sisters and these were scattered everywhere

7. My heart literally just skipped a beat

6. Then DVDs came along and you’d end up returning them because “they had the black bars”

5. I mean, the world was slightly less on fire

4. It’s impossible to explain now why we thought these would be valuable

3. I STILL DON’T KNOW

2. Bottom right still gives me anxiety

1. Who could forget “tent pants”

Well, realizing how long ago all of this happened makes me think I should probably go join AARP.

While I’m gone, tell me in the comments what your favorite distinctly 90’s thing was.

Mark Hamill Had Some Words for a Youngster Who Was Told That ‘Star Wars’ Isn’t for Girls

Stories – however they’re told – are for whoever connects with them on the other end. Men, women, children, non-binary people, literally anyone…if you like a book or a movie or a television show, then if someone suggests its not “for you,” they’re dead wrong.

My blood is actually boiling at the knowledge that a kid had the stones to tell a little girl that she couldn’t be part of a fandom that doesn’t belong to him.

Luckily, I’m not alone, and the great Luke Skywalker himself is on my side.

First, the post…

Kristal Foster’s 5-year-old daughter loves Star Wars, was wearing her favorite movie-themed shoes to school when a boy in her class informed her that she shouldn’t wear them because the franchise “isn’t for girls.”

She tagged Mark Hamill in the post on the topic, and he responded epically.

First, quoting Princess Leia…

And then he reminded everyone that the films would have ended midway through the first one had Leia not been around to rescue both Han and Luke from certain death.

Other people jumped in on the #StarWarsIsForEveryone – rightfully so.

Oh, I’m sorry… is the galaxy only filled with BOYS?

And Leia! Remember Leia!

Star Wars ladies unite!

And who was the main character in the last three films? Ahem…

The next time you hear someone try to tell someone else that some piece of art or media “isn’t for them,” you have my permission to summon Princess Leia (or Carrie Fisher) and give them a serious piece of your mind.

And maybe a middle finger. Carrie wouldn’t have it any other way.

Allow Me to Introduce You to the ‘Taste of Streep’ Instagram Account That Pairs Meryl Streep with Food

There’s an Instagram page out there for everything these days, and this is one of the weirder ones that I’ve come across.

The folks behind this page Photoshop the one and only Meryl Streep into various food photos, and it is truly odd.

Take a look for yourself…

1. Totally tubular.

2. The pot pie queen.

Dark Moments from Kids’ Movies That Come out of Nowhere

Have you been in this situation? You’re watching a movie with your kids or your nieces and nephews that is supposed to be family-friendly – and BAM! A totally disturbing and dark moment pops up and traumatizes everyone?

These people sure did, and they shared them with all of us. So take note if you have kids…you might want to avoid some of these flicks.

These responses come to us from the Buzzfeed Community.

1. Clayton’s death, Tarzan (1999)

“The scene when Clayton gets tangled in vines and is essentially hanged. That isn’t even the worst part…because then the animators decided to add in the shadow of his hanging body swinging in the trees in the next scene. In a KIDS movie. Who even thinks of these things??? I’m still scarred.”

2. The nightmare, All Dogs Go to Heaven (1989)

“When Charlie has that nightmare that he’s in hell and sees some scary-ass demons and shit. Like WTF…who is this movie for?!”

3. The scream-sucker, Monsters, Inc. (2001)

“Honestly? The big scream-sucking machine scared the shit out of me as a kid. No one thinks about it, but like…forcing kids to scream and then collecting it??? It’s dark. It still scares me. It’s horrifying.”

4. Hellfire, The Hunchback of Notre Dame (1996)

“I recently watched this again as an adult and was horrified by Frollo’s whole song. The tone of the movie is dark from the beginning, but this really takes it to a different level. All the implications blew my mind…it’s a children’s movie. Ugh, I was disturbed.”

5. The shoe’s dip, Who Framed Roger Rabbit? (1988)

“The scene when Judge Doom dips the shoe in the ‘Dip.’ It still bothers me to this day. I hate it so much.”

6. Leslie’s drowning, Bridge to Terabithia (2007)

“Of course if you read the book, you already knew about it, but if you just went into the movie thinking it was a fantasy kids movie, then you were in for a shock. It really does come out of nowhere and in NO WAY did they advertise this ‘twist,’ which made it more difficult to process for me.”

7. The opening sequence, Up (2009)

“The opening sequence leading to the miscarriage. While small children might not understand completely what was happening, an adult woman who has gone through the same definitely does…”

8. The marionettes, Polar Express (2004)

“GOOD GOD, who let Robert Zemeckis make motion capture animated movies?!”

9. Todd’s abandonment, The Fox and the Hound (1989)

“My dad always taught me that, when you adopt an animal, you make a commitment to care for them for their whole life. It was traumatizing to see her drive him into the forest and just leave him there. His little face was so confused…it’s heartbreaking.”

10. Pink elephants on parade, Dumbo (1941)

“Nothing messed with me when I was a little kid as much as that part when he gets drunk and we’re subjected to ‘Pink Elephants on Parade’ song. Absolutely not.”

Yikes! Kids, cover your eyes!

Do you know of any really creepy moments in kids’ movies that caught you by surprise?

Jennifer Aniston Surprised a Bunch of ‘Friends’ Fans Who Were Visiting Central Perk

Friends is the show that keeps on giving, am I right? It seems like the hit TV show is more popular than ever, even though it’s been off the air for almost 16 years. Especially with all the rumors and innuendo about a possible Friends reunion, people are pretty fired up about the series.

As the debate swirls about whether or not there will be a reunion, Jennifer Aniston decided to have some fun with Friends fans for The Ellen DeGeneres Show. The Ellen show is taped on the Warner Bros. lot where Friends was filmed, and the iconic “Central Perk” coffee house from the show is still there for fans to visit.

Jennifer Aniston decided it would be a fun prank to pop out from behind the couch in Central Perk and scare the daylights out of fans who were visiting. That’ll be a good story to tell their friends and family when they head back home from vacation.

Here are some of the hilarious reactions. Be sure to scroll to the end to watch the video.

Enjoy this video of Jennifer Aniston in action scaring fans. It’s a hoot!

Now, wasn’t that delightful! Let’s keep our fingers crossed for that Friends reunion. Hopefully those Hollywood bigwigs will make it happen, and soon.

So what do you think? Will there be a Friends reunion or will they just let the hit show’s legacy stay in the past? Judging by this photo from a few months ago, it looks like it might be ON.

And now we’re Instagram FRIENDS too. HI INSTAGRAM 👋🏻

Amazon Prime Offers TV Programs for Your Cat

Amazon Prime has a brand new solution if you feel guilty about leaving your pets at home: TV for cats.

This is real.

The streaming service is full of videos to entertain indoor cats, featuring footage of birds, chipmunks, squirrels, and more birds. The service could keep cats from getting bored while you’re at work all day — or you could even throw the TV on for your indoor cat while you’re home.

The videos include such riveting titles as “Movies for Cats – Forest Birds and Chipmunks,” “Songbirds and Squirrels on a Tree,” and “Baby Robin’s Day Out.” The videos mimic the experience of looking out the window, watching the birds and other critters.

The only potential side effect of cat TV? Your cat may end up attempting to hunt your television. This genre gives “reality TV” a whole new meaning.

Photo Credit: Amazon Prime Screenshot

If you don’t have Amazon Prime, your cats can still enjoy the same experience, because YouTube is full of videos for cats for free. In fact, these free videos were the inspiration behind Amazon Prime’s Cat TV service, according to a blog post.

Amazon Fire TV software engineer Sue Kim says her cat Ruby adores these videos.

“I simply leave the video playing when I leave for work, and that occupies Ruby until her nap,” Sue writes. “She also doesn’t get so upset when I leave.”

Dogs would likely enjoy watching cat TV too, especially the shows with squirrels or chipmunks. Bonus: The nature-oriented videos seem pretty darn calming for humans, too!

These Celebrities Were All Cut out of Famous Films

When actors and actresses reach a certain level of fame, you might think they can demand roles and screen time – but it turns out that almost everyone has to work for their time in front of the camera, not matter how famous.

Just like the rest of us work for a living.

How do we know? Well, you’ll probably be surprised by these 13 celebs who thought they were in a movie, only to find out later that their part had ended up on the cutting room floor.

13. You might have thought Daisy Ridley was in Inbetweeners 2, but her part was chopped.

Are you excited for #Inbetweeners2?

A post shared by Inbetweeners 2 Movie (@inbetweeners2) on

It wasn’t her fault; her scene needed to be re-shot, but she couldn’t make it because she was already on set working on Star Wars.

12. Paul Rudd played one of Kristen Wiigs’ bad dates in Bridesmaids.

They said Paul was very funny, but the movie was long and we didn’t really need a third man in Annie’s life. See the cut performance here.

11. Angela Bassett shot several scenes as a villain in Mr. & Mrs. Smith.

Director Doug Liman told Entertainment Weekly that the character was cut when he rewrote the film’s ending.

10. Matt Damon reprised his role of Linus Caldwell (Ocean’s 11) for Ocean’s 8, but didn’t appear in the final film.

The appearance was cut for plot reasons, but also because of a petition that asked for his removal after his “thoughtless and sexist comments about Harvey Weinstein.”

9. Jena Malone was cut out of Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice.

She played Jenet Klyburn, a weapons expert and ballistics specialist at S.T.A.R. Labs who helps Lois Lane.

8. Leonardo DiCaprio was originally in the 1992 thriller Poison Ivy.

He recently told Marc Maron on this WTF podcast that he had a small role with a few lines, but he couldn’t get it right and the entire bit ended up cut from the film.

7. Princes Harry and William shot cameos as stormtroopers in The Last Jedi, but had to be cut out.

They were too tall, guys. That’s it.

6. Harrison Ford originally made a cameo in E.T.

His then-wife Melissa Mathison wrote the movie, and Steven Spielberg directed, but Ford’s role as the uptight principal who reads Elliott the riot act didn’t add enough substance to make the final cut.

5. Tim Roth was axed from the final version of Once Upon a Time in Hollywood.

Once Upon a Time In Hollywood – 34/100 Im going to say this in the nicest way possible so all the @leonardodicaprio and @bradpittofflcial super fans don’t attack me! This movie was not very good. Crap actually! Maybe I’m just uncultured to what the heck was going on. But from the hop I felt like I was watching Inception. I had zero idea what was going on! Before you say “you don’t understand it, it’s a @tarantinoxx film!” I will say…. “it still sucked”, because I loved Pulp Fiction. Also…why you gotta do Bruce lee like that, man was a King-fu killer. The reason this rating is so high is because of one person…. @margotrobbie • • • • • • #onceuponatimeinhollywood #moviereview #movie #movies #film #filmreview #review #moviereviews #cinema #cinephile #moviebuff #films #movielover #moviereviewer #movietime #filmreviews #filmcritic #moviecritic #movienight #reviews #cinematography #drama #movieaddict #horror #netflix #followforfollowback #comedy #leonardodicaprio #margotrobbieedit #margotrobbie

Though he delivered memorable performances in a number of Tarantino films, his role as a British butler didn’t make the final cut this time.

4. Ellen Pompeo filmed a key role in Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind – but you never saw her.

She played Jim Carrey’s ex-girlfriend Naomi. The director actually filmed a video essay that explains why he decided not to use any of her scenes.

3. Eric Stoltz filmed the role of Marty McFly for 5 weeks before being replaced by Michael J. Fox.

the best movie trilogy ever . . . #backtothefuture

A post shared by Raccoon (@theraccoon10) on

Director Robert Zemeckis claimed most of the problem was that Eric wasn’t delivering on the script’s humor.

2. Sterling K. Brown’s entire character was cut from Split.

Director M. Night decided that the professor/neighbor character took the film away from its main focus for too long – it’s one of the deleted scenes, though!

1. Robert Pattinson played Reese Witherspoon’s son in Vanity Fair.

Given that they’re only 9 years apart in age, casting them as love interests in Water for Elephants made more sense.

 

I’m totally surprised by some of these, are you?

What Is a Pooh, and Why Is Winnie One?

Winnie the Pooh is, in fact, a bear. He lives in the woods, he eats honey, he loves to sleep, he looks like a bear…all of the signs are there.

So why, then, is he referred to as “the pooh?” And what exactly IS a pooh, anyway?

I have to confess that I never really thought too much about it until someone asked me that question, and then, well, I just had to know the answer.

 

View this post on Instagram

 

A post shared by The Flour Co. Bakeshop (@theflourco) on

To find it we have to travel way back in time to the 1920s when A.A. Milne first published his stories about the Hundred-Acre Wood

When the stories were very first written, Winnie wasn’t Winnie at all – in the original drafts he was Edward Bear. Then, on a visit to the London Zoo, Milne encountered a very friendly black bear who had been named after Winnipeg, Canada.

And thus, Winnie came into being.

But what is Pooh?

Well, Pooh referred originally to a swan.

In the book When We Were Very Young, Milne included a poem explaining how Christopher Robin would feed the swan in the mornings – a swan called “Pooh,” which is “a very fine name for a swan, because if you call him and he doesn’t come (which is a thing swans are good at), then you can pretend that you were just saying ‘Pooh!’ to show him how little you wanted him.”

Then the swan character was shown the door and Edward was renamed; Winnie the Pooh was born.

If that doesn’t satisfy you, A.A. Milne wrote in the first chapter of the first Winnie the Pooh book, “But his arms were so stiff …they stayed up straight into the air for more than a week, and whenever a fly came and settled on his nose he had to blow it off. And I think – but I am not sure – that that is why he is always called Pooh.”

So there’s that too.

The reasoning, of course, doesn’t matter all that much because the name stuck. Winnie the Pooh – or just Pooh – became an icon for children all over the world, and the rest, as they say, is history.

He even has his own holiday (Winnie the Pooh Day is January 18th, if you care to celebrate).

However he came by his name, and however you came to find him, there’s almost no chance you don’t love him – and I would never “pooh”a Winnie the Pooh date with my kids.

Or myself, to be honest.
