The 90's vs. the 00's
Why the 90's are the Clear Winner
It doesn't matter what category you look at- the 90's were superior to the 00's in every conceivable way. From entertainment to politics, from fashion to slang, there's just no comparison.
Fashion- The 90's Stomp the 00's
You wore comfy flannel, whatever kind of old shoes you felt like wearing, and a style that was all your own. If your clothes were torn or something- fine. If you felt like wearing two or three shirts- great. If you liked wearing hats and six earrings on each ear, more power to ya'. Just put on whatever and hop in the mosh pit.
If you don't have immaculate, designer clothing, you are not worthy of being alive. You need toned abs for the half-shirts and $400 for the shoes. Style? What the hell is style? Just wear whatever they do on the gossip blogs. Now go bleach your teeth or they will make fun of you on MySpace.
Entertainment- The 90's Rocked
Jerry! Jerry! Back in the day, talk shows ruled. I had a friend on college who used to say, "bring on the freaks!" every afternoon when we were finished with classes for the day. Yeah- that's when people went to school and then college instead of deciding that they could educate themselves at home by designing websites.
Anyway, 00's reality shows try their hand at the freakshow that was the 90's, but carefully orchestrated weirdness just isn't the same thing. Reality shows? Please. There are 10 skanks who try to outskank each other in order to stay on the show so they can, um, I don't even know why. They're awful. Can't...look...away...

The Office (Ok, that one's fine)
?? I literally can't think of another one
Slang of Both Eras: 00's Lose
I think the 90's were da bomb- all that and a bag of chips. I would say that the 00's should come with and get some phat style, but I suppose 00's supporter would say, um, ho- that's a pimp, ho.
No really, that's like the only slang they have. Ho and pimp. I don't even want to go there. So yada yada yada- the 90's win. Damn skippy.
Music of the 90's vs. Music of the 00's
Please. There's no contest. Allow me to elaborate:
Red Hot Chili Peppers
Stone Temple Pilots
High School Musical
Some Random Girl in a Thong
Still don't believe it? Watch the two videos from each era below and make up your own mind.
