If you're a child of the 80s like I am, you might remember the Garbage Pail Kids. Whenever I'd get a dollar from my grandparents or find some change in the couch, I'd go down to the local convenience store, The Food Bag, and buy a pack of those cards.
Yesterday I was cleaning out the glove box in the car when I was visiting my parents and SoJo was napping, and I found an old travel Scrabble game, which I must have made its way into the car from one of our road trips. It was mine when I was a kid. For kicks, I opened it and found this inside
It's Pollutin' Newton! I had to post this because I think I should make him the unofficial mascot of Green and Clean Week here next week.
I found this website that helps you find the card that is closest to your name. Unfortunately, it doesn't have the picture so you have to do a search on the card to see what it looked like. I was always disappointed that there was no Kathleen, only Catty Kathy, which looked like an even more obese Garfield, and since I already had body image issues, I never pinned Catty Kathy to my bulletin board.
Does anyone out there remember these? Which one was your favorite?
