Challenge #9: What is your favorite Decade

So, you think you know the '90s? NOT! From Seinfeld, the show about nothing, to Tickle Me Elmo, the hottest most annoying toy of the '90s, to Titanic, the biggest blockbuster in movie history. The 90's definitely is "like a box of chocolates. You never know what you gonna get!" From Beverly Hills 90210 to X-Files, flannel shirts to the "Rachel" hairdo, from "Rico Suave" to Monica Lewinsky ... Are those Bugle Boy Jeans you're wearing? You down wit "O.P.P"? And most important of all: Where's Waldo?!?!?! The 90's were about gettin' jiggy with it. I think this is why I had to pick "The 90's as my favorite decade" plus this decade played a huge part in my life, I graduated, turned 18, turned 21, and grew up with Friends.
And don't forget...

Garth Brooks made being a goofy looking cowboy cool!
People finally cared about ice skating thanks to the Nancy Kerrigan/ Tonya Harding soap opera
The particularly un-sexy Right Said Fred tells us they are actually "Too Sexy"
Jesse "The Body" becomes Jesse "The Brain" and governor of Minnesota
Battle of the baggy pants rappers: MC Hammer Vs. Vanilla Ice
Mark Wahlberg back when he was known as Marky Mark! "C'mon, c'mon. Feel it! Feel it!
Julia Roberts stars in the gritty, all too real look at the bleak world of prostitution: Pretty Woman
George Foreman becomes heavyweight champ of boxing, and the heavyweight champ of fat reducing grilling machines, at age 45
Sharon Stone becomes a superstar overnight by a racy part in 'Basic Instinct"
Amy goes to jail and Mary Jo takes a bullet in the face- Was Joey really worth it?
92' Olympic basketball dream team feels great about themselves as they squeak past Angola 114-48 and win the gold with a win over Croatia, where basketball was introduced in 1990. Or how we witnessed the evolution of Jason Priestly and Luke Perry's sideburns over the years on Beverly Hills 90210

How could you not love, the 90's and laugh until you've "fallen. and you can't get up!"
