I Used To Be A Renegade

Huey Lewis spoke the truth.  It really IS hip to be square.  First we had the swagger wagon parents (see below if you are unfamiliar with them. You will be sad they're just now coming into your life) and now we've got the Geico grandpa who is soooo hip!  And not the prosthetic kind, although that may certainly apply here too. 

Some (fashionably?) square things I do?  Play Boggle, own a shirt with a picture of my dog on it, quote Huey Lewis and the News, watch the Disney channel, and french cuff my jeans.  Just kidding about that last one.  I also tell lame jokes.  But you already knew that.  Here are a ton of videos starting with the Geico grandpa, a commercial I borrowed from my friend Margi at The Maverick Crafter who had it on her blog yesterday.

What hip and square things do you do?

Love the swagger wagon. I got me one of those, figuratively.

And um not to be crass, but does anybody out there agree that Grandpa's junk in the first clip is hanging all out of his pants. I couldn't pay attention to the commercial, I was too distracted.

And ummm. . .basically I'm just square. No hip in this chic. Though as seen in this comment, I can be crass, and I think sometimes thats seen as hip. So maybe there's hope for me yet.
