I’ve always kind of loved the term “yesteryear.” Though I’ve often wondered if it’s supposed to mean literally last year, a recent year, or just some vaguely romantic notion of the past.

Of course, words only mean things based on how we use them, so it shouldn’t have come as a surprise to me when I looked it up and found the definition literally included all three connotations.

With that in mind, I hope you’ll enjoy being blasted right back into yesteryear, via these nostalgic memes.

13. The sacred arts

“But I was saying ‘honk shoe’ and everything!”

12. The rat

Why you gotta tell on me like that?

11. The situation room

You gotta get in there and make ’em understand.

10. Decisions, decisions

There are ancient rites of divination that must be passed down.

9. Latchkey kids

How did more of us not die?
Or did it just not make the news?

8. Now that’s sharp

The ultimate quest in uselessness.

7. The sick day

Price is right can stay, the rest is garbage.

6. Choose your fighter

Are you a decent soul like Yoshi or some Wario sociopath?

5. Caught on tape

Keeping tapes properly labeled was a feat no one on earth could achieve.

4. And that man was…

Mr. Feeeeeeeeeeny!

3. True fear

“Oh cool, so this is how it ends.”

2. The hate you give

She had a part to play and she played it well.

1. So catchy

On the playground is where I spent most of my days…

Man. Yesteryear really was something.
