Outdated cultural references you still use

For example, when my wife asks me where her glasses are, I will always reply “his glasses! He can’t see without his glasses!”, which last night she informed me was far too out of date now as a reference. I will also say “alright, Mariah Carey” sometimes if someone makes a request for something, although she’s still around so I guess it’s not too dated. I’d like to hear more examples of this please.

They’re the best ones though! You’re right though, I said “if you’re gonna spew, spew into this” to someone at work the other day. No idea what i was talking about.

Still refer to things as ‘Totally fucking mexico’ on rare occasions.

All the Brass Eye ones, I guess too.

I told a group of students that they’d all be able to be successful in a task but one could impress me loads and move onto a successful solo career like Beyonce leaving Destiny’s Child.

The blank looks I got meant I had to explain that Beyonce had not arrived in the music world on her own.

I’ll always reply to hearing the word ‘question’ with most of the first verse of Independent Women. I know I am not alone in this.
