editor’s pick: snap happy

our favorite ’00s phrase makes a comeback.

by katherine martinez

There's nothing better than a little good middle school lingo on a graphic tee to make you feel really old and awesome. There were so many good things about "Oh snap," but we only have room to highlight a few. First of all, the phrase essentially allowed you to curse without getting detention.  For example:

Teacher: "Please pass forward your Catcher in the Rye book reviews."

Me: "OH SNAP! I totes forgot they were due today."  

Secondly, it could be accompanied by a physical punctuating gesture, namely, the snap.  Again, nothing you could get in trouble for there---- if anything, it put you on par with Carelton from The Fresh Prince [insert snappy dance].

Finally----- it was the booming chorus of the 00's pop classic, "London Bridge."  Fergie would be nothing without "oh snap."

This tank top represents an important piece of history---- wear it well!
