25 Hilarious Jokes from the 1980s That Will Stoke Your Nostalgia
Those of us who grew up in the '80s look at the world a little differently than everybody else. We're not afraid of turning up the collar of our polo shirts and wearing some light blue eyeshadow. We think "Born in the U.S.A." should be the national anthem and the Commodore 64 was the best computer money could buy—and sometimes, of course, we just want to shout, shout, let it all out. We know the euphoria of Baby Jessica being rescued from the well, and the smug satisfaction of believing we helped solve world hunger by buying a "We Are the World" cassette single.
Our sense of humor also makes us unique. We laugh at things that might leave other people stone-faced. If our cultural references don't always make sense, well, as that old saying goes, I guess you just had to be there. Here are 25 jokes guaranteed to put a smile on the face of anyone who came of age in the 1980s. As for the rest of you, don't feel bad if these jokes go over your head. Not everyone can grow up in history's greatest decade.
