Some faux reporter (I guess that could many anyone from the mainstream media) should go to the democrat convention and show some PETA folks pictures of naugahyde furniture. Then ask them if they’re in favor of banning the hunting of naugas.

They still make the stuff. I guess they just don’t use the term anymore.

I’ll bet at least 99% would fall for it!

“The concept stuck like a sweaty leg to a Naugahyde couch.”

It always amazes me how much gets lost in just a generation. My kids would have no idea what that meant but it’s the first thing that pops into my head when I hear the word.

Lost. Along with a half-frozen Pepsi in a bottle, the ring of those black 45-pound phones provided by the phone company, the healthy clunk of the channel knob on an old TV (”Don’t turn it so fast, you’ll break it!”), picking out your candy from the glass display bins at the dime store and so much more.

Not good or bad, I guess. Just different.

(I’ve turned into an old fart somewhere along the way! LOL)
