12 ’90s Phrases or Terms That Everyone Said But Made Zero Sense

By  | 

“Cut. It. Out.” “As if!” “Whatever.” These are all phrases and terms that have become synonymous with the ’90s ever since the likes of TV shows like Full House and classic films like Clueless. However, they can somewhat make sense. (Ex. “As if… I’d ever consider going out with you.”) Then there are those other slang terms; you know, the ones that everyone said but actually made zero sense when you really think about ’em.

1. “All that and a bag of chips.”

8. “Talk to the hand (because the face ain’t listening).” It kinda makes sense because you’re throwing up your hand, but still…

9. “I’m rubber, you’re glue…”

10. “Cowabunga!” “Tubular!” and “Radical!” also fall along these lines.

11. “Da bomb.” Taking it one step further, “bomb diggity.”
