Love the gender-swapped Avengers! And I remember almost all of those Old People things, alas, yes.

Holy crap. I'm so old I fart dust.
3,7,10,17,18,23,26,33,36,37 are still
at use in my house. Some of the kitchen
stuff within the past week.

Oh Dear God - No - No - No - NO!

Remember: Growing old is required.
Growing up is optional, and you're
never too old to learn something stupid.

Happy Friday Miss C!

I don't know Captain America, but I see a Tina Fey type, third down on the right.

Well I admit I'm old, but... I'm not familiar with #44 (too new for me) or #29 or #8. #12 is still served at a local cafeteria, so it does not belong on the list. But otherwise, yes!

How did #25 get replaced? And seriously, how do people today prepare them without #10 and #17?

#50: Pfft! I remember gasoline before unleaded was an option, at $0.37.
