I screamed in WalMart the other day. Looking with my son at Yu-Gi-Oh cards, my eyes spotted something that my brain refused to comprehend. I did a double take. Finally, on the third look, I was ready to accept what I was seeing:
Oh. My. God.
Y’all don’t know how important “Wacky Packs” were to me when I was Zaphod’s age. I remember working my butt off to get money for a pack of Wacky Packages and a package of “Now or Laters”. (Amongst my friends, they were called “now-laters”.
This development fills me with a wistful nostalgia. The cards have not changed a bit; they are exactly as they were in 1975. Parody sticker on the front, the back has a single piece in a puzzle that forms a big parody package.
Now, if they’d just bring back clackers, I’d be in mid-life crisis heaven.
