I realize ripping on The Hoff wasn't invented yesterday, but nobody does it better than, well, The Hoff. This video is a masterpiece of self-ridicule. I've got to hand it to him, he pulls it off so brilliantly, it almost looks like he's not kidding.
When I was a kid, someone like The Hoff would have been referred to as a "Larry." As in, "what a fucking Larry." I'm about to bring "Larry" back. Other words and phrases I'm working on bringing back:
janky: "My janky Ford Festiva won't go over forty without leaving the transmission on the side of the road."
jam-up: "Damn, girl, those biscuits & gravy were jam-up! Give me another plate!"
