TOTD 2019-12-26: Fads of Christmas Past


I remember the Pet Rock craze, do you? Someone came up with the idea that the person who had everything needed a stone to call their own. (Do you like the rhyme?) Did anyone buy one or get one? If you got one what did you do with it?

And for a limited time only the Ratburger Store is selling these. (Picture below.)


If you know what this is please tell us in the comments.

Here is a fad that started over here in Japan.

You could learn from this little device how to raise a pet from an egg. If you made mistakes and didn’t take care properly the pet could get sick and die. Here is an excerpt from the Wiki page.

Pets have a Hunger meter, Happy meter, Bracelet meter and Discipline meter to determine how healthy and well behaved the pet is. There is also an age and weight check function for the current age and weight of the pet.

Can anyone top these three fads?

    I thought the Ratburger store would be selling pet sock puppets in your likeness…

    Er, ahem, the store is for premium members not the hoy polloy.

    No problem, I have a member that peruses for me.

    Communism. For a while, all the cool kids were doing it.

    I suppose you could say the cool kids are doing Communism now.

    At least, they are the cool kids to half of America.

    No, I would not care to.

    If I did you would be greatly surprised.
