In today’s day and age I would imagine that a status symbol for a child in elementary school would be their iphone or even possibly the kind of cell phone they have. Hell eventually it’ll be whether or not they had sex the night before. Kids today are just too advanced and it’s quite disturbing.

It’s a shame they stopped making the metal lunchbox. Though I’d image that today they’d be used as weapons. Here are some 80s lunchboxes that were probably sure to open up the popularity gates.
Even More Uncoachable Stuff
