Ah, the 1990s — what a magical and nostalgic time for humanity. 'Twas a time full of the greatest cartoons, questionable hairstyles (frosted tips, anyone?), and dial-up internet. Basically the '90s were a simpler time when the Sears air conditioner commercials were catchy, all you had to do to fix a busted video game was blow on the cartridge, and butterfly clips were the height of fashion. But this time was not only simple and full of some of the best pop culture this cold world has ever seen, the '90s were also pretty gross. Like, totally super gnarly, nasty, icky, grody, and all those other '90s era words for disgusting.
From the questionable '90s fashion choices, to the toys that might make you vomit if you really think about them, to the unacceptably disgusting snacks (in hindsight), to cringe-worthy TV shows that had us hiding behind our respective couches, the '90s were full of some intensely icky stuff. If it wasn't one thing, it was another. It's really a wonder that any of us survived the whole ordeal. But survive we did, and we're not that much worse for the wear (probably). At least now we're all well-adjusted adults, and the '90s are just a faint glimmer in our collective eyes (again, I mean probably).
