    Robby: “Where do you put the CDs?”

    Mom: “D’Oh!”

  2. Ida_Slaptem says:

    Wow, Greg Brady, You’re the grooviest!

  3. PromisedPlanet says:

    Is that Elvis?

  4. morethannoise says:

    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.

  5. Bryan says:

    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!”

  6. Jak says:

    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.

  7. Bob says:

    Does Robby look a helluva lot like Wil Wheaton or it is just me?

  8. amanda says:

    is that a pipe on the table?

  9. Geno says:

    Robby is awfully good-lookin’. Just sayin’.

  10. Springjack says:

    This IS my happy face; I was just really hoping for the eight-track player.

  11. Shyla says:

    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.

  12. Ego Nemo says:

    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?”

  13. Bec says:

    bummer, its not even a double cassette deck. will be hard to dub those tapes

  14. wajiii says:

    The chairs, my god… my head hurts. I need to go lie down now.

  15. durhay says:

    That wall outlet is totally photoshopped in.

  16. Gabba says:

    Sweet! I used to have that same boombox when I was a kid…..

  17. m says:

    The whole calendar probably says Grow your own dope, plant a man.
    It explains a lot.

    • mommydi says:

      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!

  18. Amber says:

    Nice! Compliments to Robbie on the Brooding Billy Zane look.

  19. Steve says:

    In your eyes/The light, the heat/Your eyes/I am complete…

  20. Bit says:

    This radio is cool right now!

  21. Ego Nemo says:

    Hey, not all ‘Make-a-Wish’ gifts are trips to Disney World.

  22. MCR says:

    I think I saw that boom box in a Goodwill rejects dumpster recently.

  23. Spud says:

    Does the calendar say “Plant a man”?

  24. caleb says:

    that boombox is totally rad.

  25. Elizabeth says:

    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?

  26. MyLeftNut says:

    Plant a Man? Wha???

  27. MyLeftNut says:

    I don’t know what to say other than, What’s on his shirt and what’s with those chairs???

  28. Spike says:

    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?

  29. Snowrider says:

    May, 1990. (The 31st was on a Thursday that year) “Plant A Man”?! What the heck does that mean?

  30. SEM says:

    Umm… I asked for an iPod.

    • nannabanana says:

      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.

  31. Leslie says:

    Epic Ghetto Blastah!

  32. tubist says:

    “In your eyes, I am complete…”

  33. J. says:

    Does that calendar say “Plant a Man” ???

  34. bmj2k says:

    That was not what I expected from a wedding band.

  35. Josh says:

    Yeah, that radio was cool in the 90’s…if you were Amish.

  36. Tim says:

    With her present and undying support, Robby knew the sky was the limit for his Karaoke career!

  37. Don says:

    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.

  38. durhay says:

    That kid wants his $2

  39. Cynthia L. Rector says:

    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!

  40. armchairhero says:

    Does that calender say “Plant a man”? I think it does. That makes me say, what the what?

  41. JimD says:

    Is that Wesley Crusher ?

  42. Cindy says:

    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.

  43. Bkkevy says:

    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?

  44. Dotte says:

    You just know they have a plug in microphone and he’ll be crooning to his sweetie. haha

  45. Boppie says:

    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.

    • ReginaPhalange says:

      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.

  46. Nicola says:

    The scariest thing is that the calendar doesn’t say 1980 something, but 199X… this was the 90’s!!!

  47. Tim S says:

    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.)

  48. Becca says:

    Gosh look so…happy.

  49. Jennifer says:

    HAHA I love the caption!
