Remember Beanie Babies? Yeah, feel free to gag. Beanie Babies were meant for children but they began to fill up the cubicles of the aggressively obese the way Trolls had done years before: filling the void in their lives where children, sex and/or a social life might have been. Beanie Babies thrived on the disposable income of the eternally single who had nothing more interesting to spend it on…like good books or cocaine. That’s why you had “collectors” (more like hoarders) trampling one another to get to the limited edition releases like they were grilled cheeses at Oprah’s house, dignity and social etiquette be damned.
