That S aint just an 80s thing, as kids we used to draw it in the 70s as well. The dad of a mate of mine was a machinist and made a couple of them in stainless steel and glued them to his Sukuki dirt bike fuel tank, we were so envious!
I remember all the “cool kids” drawing the S thing, and I never knew how until my sister, who is, let’s face it, cooler than me, showed me how.
I felt great and started drawing it on all my notes, only to find out people had stopped drawing it because it was no longer cool.
Story of my life.
All the cool guys drew the S thing and all the lesbian girls (I assumed they were all lesbians, since they wouldn’t let me touch their good-goods) wrote their names in bubble letters, over and over again.
I didn’t do either… I drew stick figure porn along with various pictures of a decapitated duck head attacking cities, with tanks and helicopters trying to defend against the seige.
The S thing, I remember people called it a “stoosee”. Around fifth grade the schools started filling our little impressionable minds with fear of drugs and gangs so I was terrified of drawing one, lest I got in trouble for “gang paraphernalia”.
Ummm, Middle School and into High School. I still draw a floating, ominous duck head from time to time .
I had one pog… I wanted “in on the craze”, but I only knew one person that had any pogs and they would only give me one. So I took it, and thus, I had one pog. I played with it for about 30 minutes, then I bent it in half (they were just cardboard-like material) and threw it away. Pogs… haha.
No, I just know you a little too well, in fact… whoa, stop that, put that down, you’re clean enough! You’re just gonna hurt yourself! Oh, I guess that’s the point, nevermind, carryon.
Interesting that a clothing company claims it yet it was drawn by kids twenty years before the company was founded. Wouldnt be the first time a company has claimed something stolen from the public domain
