Idyllic? I Think Not

Everyone always talks about "The Good Ol' Days" like the '50's were some kind of innocent nirvana, while today life is such a chore.

Well, I was watching Grease the other night for the 389th time, and I couldn't help but notice how angry and sarcastic everyone was (except Frenchie) - in fact, Sandy "fit in" at the end by changing into a bitchy temptress for Danny (it was enough that Danny "attempted" to change)...don't get me wrong, I'm angry and sarcastic so it didn't bother me in the least, I'm just sayin' that maybe things weren't so peachy keen.

Rock On,

as a black dude I never refer to the 50s as the good old days.

i remember watching happy days and my dad or someone explained that the fonzies of the world weren't looked at with awe and admiration by his peers. apparantly, the college bound kids knew the greasers had no future. maybe that's where their anger came from. frenchie may have been a beauty school drop out, but she showed some initiative.

hey josh homer,

yeah, but what about your white half?

hey kimberoo99,

well, they SHOULDN't have been...they were ne'er do wells (did i write that right?). True, Frenchie was prolly a republican.

Rizzo is one of the bitchiest and sarcasticist (I know, I just made it up) character ever! that's why I love her.
She also thought she was knocked up. She was a slut too!

Harris,
My white half doesn't think it was the good old days either. He's scared he be shot for being a darky lover.
