The 80s were the anti-anti-worst decade ever, meaning the opposite of best. Everyone who disagrees was not young in the 80s, people like spuriousmonkey who insists on calling the 80s the best decade ever. Redarmy11 is a known 80s vandal who doesn't appreciate the 80s. Bbecause he had acne in the 80s. Whereas spuriousmonkey had every Duran Duran album ever made, including Japanese releases that he had to import specially, plus his favourite band member was John Taylor and he tried to copy his hairstyle once but, predictably, it all went horribly wrong and he got laughed at by everyone at his school. Anyway he's a big gay and probably fancies George Michael. The End. Redarmy11 dated Eileen. And he constantly moaned: 'come on Eileen' when he wanted to touch her small tits. This was turned into a smash hitsong a year later in 1982 by the Dexys Midnight Runners. Eileen declined redarmy11's desperate advances, causing redarmy11 to hate the 80s although he should also hate GeoffP and athelwunf.
