Retro Tuesday- Lasers!

Tuesday, July 14th, 2009
By Glinda

There is a website entitled “We Have Lasers!” and it is a homage to those once-ubiquitous backgrounds in school photos. I think the laser backgrounds were all the rage in the mid-eighties, and their popularity didn’t diminish until the mid-nineties or so.

Sadly, I own no portraits with lasers in the background. I believe they might have been a choice for my senior prom, and I chose a cloud-ish background instead. I know, bo-ring.  Do you have your own laser picture lurking somwhere around your mom’s house?  Submit it and become instantly famous!

Here are some delightful examples of the photos they have over at the site:

Our most recent Caption Contest is our most hotly-contested one in memory, and the competition was as tight as money back in the day when this picture was taken. After much thought and not a little Bombay Sapphire, we’ve chosen a winner from among the many worthy entrants:

Pepe, you idiot! First you forget the cherry tomatoes, feta cheese and onion quarters, and now you don’t even brush them with olive oil after you spit them!

Congratulations and imaginary prizes to FFE for what is, I believe, his first win in our illustrious contest. Now, to the virtual presentation of the hypothetical swag: in this case, we’ve chosen the snappily retro Jaxon Rude Boy hat from TheVillageHatShop:

Jaxon Rude Boy; boy oh boy, thats a snappy hat
