Does anyone remember the craze for stealing badges off cars (VW's?) and making them into pendants? Or is it just me?

How rude!

Poor Jo comes here with a mystery that's probably been keeping her up at night and you dismiss it as nonsense. That's awful.

How would you like it if someone didn't take this post with the due seriousness it deserves, eh?

Its coming back around... only with luxury marks in the U.S. You can steal the badge off a Caddy or you can pay through the nose to have a chintzy replica at the end of an oversized chain.

Wasn't that a Beasty Boys thing?

There was also that "attaching Grolsch bottle tops to your shoe laces" thing.
