The 90s might be in the past, but that doesn’t mean the language from that decade needs to be.
The years between 1990 and 1999 gave us the words of quotable movies like Clueless and Titanic. They popularized the acronym TGIF (“thank God it’s Friday”), when we all ran home to watch a solid block of quality TV programming on ABC. And of course, the ’90s gave us marketing slogans such as wazzzzzap that we haven’t yet forgotten.
Sure, some of the catchphrases aren’t as durable as others (Booyah! and Not! come to mind), but there are a few we’d like to keep around. If you’re yearning for the days of butterfly clips and Tamagotchi, try out these words from the ’90s for those days when you’re feeling especially fly.
