This week’s Throwback Thursdays is all over the place. Rap metal? Check. Fat camp? Check. Mr. Feenie? Super check. I’d waste more of your time, but I’d rather just get right to the action. Let’s go back in time.
Limp Bizkit – Nookie
Don’t even try lying to me. You know there was a time in your life when you actually enjoyed the antics of Fred Durst and the rap rock phenomenon that they called Limp Bizkit. It was angry. It was raw. And it was probably the lamest phase in the history of fads. Limp Bizkit was quick to fall from popularity, but they paved the way for more angst-driven bands with misspelled names like Linkin Park, Trapt, Korn, Staind, and Papa Roach (which is spelled correctly, but still makes no sense).
Boy Meets World
Now it’s about time for me to ruin your childhood. Boy Meets World is without a doubt one of the funniest sitcoms of the 90’s, but what you probably didn’t realize is that the entire show is about the struggle for Corey Matthews’ sexuality. Let me explain: Shawn Hunter had a gay crush on his best friend, and was afraid of his feelings. Hence, his repeated insistence that if Corey and Topanga aren’t together the world will end (remember that creepy Halloween episode? I do: Part 1, Part 2). Think I’m wrong? Go back and watch old episodes and just see how gay they are.
Some of you might be too young to remember this movie, and in that case: prepare to get educated. You know White Goodman, Ben Stiller’s character from Dodgeball? Well, he existed years before that, but his name was Tony Perkis and he ran a fat camp full of disobedient chubsters. Kenan was in there. So was Goldberg from The Mighty Ducks. If you haven’t seen it, then I highly recommend that you find it and watch it – you won’t regret it.
