They have always had an answering machine.

They have always had cable

They don't know who Mork was or where he was from.

They never heard:

'Where's the Beef?'

'I'd walk a mile for a Camel '


'de plane Boss, de plane'.

McDonald's never came in Styrofoam containers.

They don't have a clue how to use a typewriter.
