Daily Trivia: 1/23/13

Question: What was the name of the robot on Buck Rogers in the 25th Century?

Last Question: What field guide by author Lisa Birnbach claimed, “It is the inalienable right of every man, woman and child to wear khaki.”?

Answer: The Official Preppy Handbook

Great job Kickin’ It Old School (@OldSchool80s)!!

Ah, The Official Preppy Handbook – the bible of all things preppy. This tongue-in-cheek book informed us that “looking, acting, and ultimately being Prep is not restricted to an elite minority lucky enough to attend prestigious private schools, just because an ancestor or two happened to arrive here on the Mayflower”.

So what comes to your mind when you hear the word “Prep” or “Preppy”? The first thing I think of is the collar turned up.

  1. Answer: Twiki. And an annoying little fella he was.

    When I hear Prep or Preppy, I think of pink alligator shirts and boat shoes.

    1. You got it Jim! I think I remember him being annoying too. I’ll take R2D2 over him anytime.

      Ah yes, the alligator shirts. I forgot about those. And the boat shoes were definitely preppy. Good ones!
