Two movies that make me feel old
"Ferris Bueller's Day Off" and "The Wizard of Oz" - Here's why.

I think the first time I saw the "Wizard of Oz" was when I was about 6-years old. At that time, the movie had it's 25th anniversary.

and then I realize that "Ferris Bueller's Day Off" is just as old today.

Aliens came out in 1986 - not half as many nightmares as Flying Monkeys.

1. The Wizard of Oz was made the year I was born,
so I should be the one to feel old. But of course, I am now.

5. Did they have anything rude to say about Marines wearing Army stripes?
I would think Marines would wear tutus before they'd wear anything Army.
