  1. Tell Bruce Campbell or any fans of Ash vs Evil Dead that Groovy is out of fashion and they’ll tell you you’re an idiot.

  2. Most of these words went out of date 50 years ago. But I did recently use the word “whippersnapper”. I tied up my wife and took a riding crop. I said I was gonna whip ‘er snapper!

  3. I didn’t use the word “groovy” even when it was groovy to say it. I thought it sounded stupid then until you were talking about records. Back then, all records were groovy.
