Robby was hoping for something a little more impressive to hold over his head.

Robby: “Where do you put the CDs?”
Wow, Greg Brady, You’re the grooviest!
Is that Elvis?
I got this cassette/radio from my wife back in the early 90′s I believe and I still use it. It’s a GE brand with a 3 band graphic equalizer and detachable speakers.
I just joined this site tonight. I wished I could have captioned it. “Anybody got 20 “D” batteries? my Twista tape is starting to sound like Johnny Cash!”
Now thats funny Brian hahah
Rob is painfully aware that between sexist calenders and re-gifting of decades old presents, Mom’s hostility to the penis having community is never far below the surface.
…tears in my eyes!
Does Robby look a helluva lot like Wil Wheaton or it is just me?
is that a pipe on the table?
A pipe? That looks like the power cord to me.
Robby is awfully good-lookin’. Just sayin’.
This IS my happy face; I was just really hoping for the eight-track player.
The chair everyone keeps commenting on is obviously a high chair for a baby. You can clearly see the metal arms where the tray slides on.
As for ‘Plant a man!,’ I’m not totally sure, but that could be a ‘student art’ calendar with selections from the local high school or whatnot.
It looks like a cartoon of a person buried up to their head.
I bet that the part of the image that we can’t see says “Man a plant?”
The calendar says “Grow your own dope….Plant a MAN!”
bummer, its not even a double cassette deck. will be hard to dub those tapes
The chairs, my god… my head hurts. I need to go lie down now.
That wall outlet is totally photoshopped in.
totally lol for me.
Sweet! I used to have that same boombox when I was a kid…..
The whole calendar probably says Grow your own dope, plant a man.
It explains a lot.
I now understand why there are duplicate responses!!! Your reply was NOT showing when I replied!! lol!
*Slaps head* But, of course! Thank you for filling in the blanks.
Grow your own dope…. plant a man…
Bumper sticker/t-shirt/keychain blah blah blah back then…
No I didn’t have it memorized, I googled!
Nice! Compliments to Robbie on the Brooding Billy Zane look.
In your eyes/The light, the heat/Your eyes/I am complete…
If I have that stuck in my head for the rest of the day, the blame lies entirely with you, Steve.
This radio is cool right now!
Hey, not all ‘Make-a-Wish’ gifts are trips to Disney World.
Just an FYI, I spit Diet Coke out of my mouth when I read your comment.
Wrong! Bad-bad you! (laughing my rear off)
I think I saw that boom box in a Goodwill rejects dumpster recently.
Does the calendar say “Plant a man”?
that boombox is totally rad.
I think I’m more disturbed that the calendar says “Plant a man” than the fact it’s 199_ something. I mean, what kind of calendar is this?
Plant a Man? Wha???
I don’t know what to say other than, What’s on his shirt and what’s with those chairs???
I think that white&polka-dot chair is a kid’s highchair.
Either my retinas are playing mean tricks on me or the calendar actually reads “May 199x Plant A Man!!” Is that the hairdo she planted in January?
Where does one purchase mullet seeds, I wonder?
May, 1990. (The 31st was on a Thursday that year) “Plant A Man”?! What the heck does that mean?
Umm… I asked for an iPod.
and i would have settled for a walkman. but now, i’m gonna have to buy about 600 D batteries for this old-school mammoth jambox you got me.
Epic Ghetto Blastah!
“In your eyes, I am complete…”
Does that calendar say “Plant a Man” ???
That was not what I expected from a wedding band.
Yeah, that radio was cool in the 90′s…if you were Amish.
With her present and undying support, Robby knew the sky was the limit for his Karaoke career!
Robby looks like the type of guy that can’t be tied down. He’s always moving, a true, free spirit. This “contraption” would simply slow him down. He obviously was wishing for a Mr. Microphone.
That kid wants his $2
The opportunity to reference multiple John Cusack movies from this picture……….Priceless!!
You could do John Cusack or John Hughes. Lol.
If you can read the date on that calendar, your eyes are a lot better than mine! Hey that radio was cool back in the day!
Does that calender say “Plant a man”? I think it does. That makes me say, what the what?
Is that Wesley Crusher ?
Dude! it is!!!!!
My brother had this same radio. He got it for Christmas in the late 80′s or early 90′s. Now I have to go find pictures of him when he opened it. I can only hope he looked this excited.
“Stellar jukebox, sir!”
Why can’t you be in a good mood? How hard is it to decide to be in a good mood and be in a good mood once in a while?
Gee. It’s easy. (Insert sarcastic Joan Cusack voice)
I really got in trouble for using that line once! I don’t think she saw the movie or the humor.
You just know they have a plug in microphone and he’ll be crooning to his sweetie. haha
…..and change his name to Ritchie so he could sing “La bamba”!
You know, just because Prince made ‘party like it’s 1999′ sound cool and futuristic, the 90′s really weren’t that advanced. I mean, this radio was cool in the ’90′s. ‘Nuff said.
Cool in the ’90s? That radio wasn’t even that cool in the ’80s. Packing up your home stereo system and carrying it around on your shoulder was the minimum.
The scariest thing is that the calendar doesn’t say 1980 something, but 199X… this was the 90′s!!!
the scariest thing is that i think the calendar says “Plant a Man!!” What the**?
Plant a man AND a pic with a head growing out of the grown. WTF?
Grow Your Own Dope! Plant A Man!
Sadly it was 1996. Even more sadly, I looked that up.
And does it say “Plant a man”?!?!
That’s what it looks like to me too, “Plant a man”
1990. I checked, only May to end on Thursday in the 90′s. So not as bad as say 99.
May 1996 started tuesday and ended thursday as well. But dear whatever some people call god: I hope this was 1990, at least then we can say it was 20 years back, and people didn’t know better. :p
Maya – On what Planet? 1990 was the only year that May 1st was on a Tuesday…
No, I think the scariest thing is there is a small child evident in the photo who witnessed this in his formative years.
Oh, it says “Plant”? I thought it said “Rent” seriously…
May 1996 started on wednesday and ended on friday it had to be 1990… Thank God!
It’s a super-heterodyne mobius klein bottle!
(it’s OK if that doesn’t make sense, I’ve just always wanted to use those three concepts in one sentence.)
Gosh Robbie..you look so…happy.
He’s so grateful…
HAHA I love the caption!
I second that! Brilliant!
