FFF: Letter People Day

Welcome back to Funky Foto Flashback, the internet's most steadily growing meme!

circa: 1983

Do you remember The Letter People? My kindergarten had a Letter People Day wherein we dressed up like our favorite letter person. Mine was Mr. H- Horrible Hair. Seeing this picture as a mom cracks me up - Gabriel has a hard time smiling in pictures too, he usually has to make a silly face! I wonder how many times my mom asked me to please just smile nicely before she gave up.

(Shout out to my peeps in the STL! This show was created in the land of Budweiser and Nelly! Wha! Whaaaa!)

This post brought to you by Sprite's Keeper and Sprite's bad hair day.

I know you want to play. Not sure how? Its easy!

  • Just post your funky foto on your blog
  • Copy and paste the code for the Funky Foto Flashback button (optional)
  • Sign in to Mr. Linky
(Mr. Linky thinks its ok to take a day off now and then. This problem is being addressed by the HR department of Adventures of the Grigg Boys)

Since Mister Linky is being difficult I will do this the old fashioned way...

That's exactly how I intend to do my hair tomorrow.

Oh that's hilarious, I love your horrible hair! Mine looks like that all the time, is that bad?

I didn't get to play today, sorry. It's been a "H" for horrible week around here and I'm way behind in everything in my life. Next week, I promise.

And I remember the letter people, I googled them a few months back and the new versions of them are spensive. Sheesh.

I've never seen The Letter People. I loved the Mr. H song, it's awesome. And your hair! What a cool activity, we never did anything fun like that in Kindergarten and our teacher used to bang us on the knuckles with a trainer pencil. Good times.
