Every time period has something good to offer, which is why there are slang terms from the '50s that should be brought back. The words may sound silly now, but think of all of the odd modern terms we have like 'selfie' and 'twerk.' The only reason those phrases don't sound strange to us is because we're familiar with them. Here are some slang terms from the '50s that you'll find silly, although they're no weirder than some of the things we currently say:

Have you ever walked through a parking lot, only to catch two people making out in a car? Well, that's what backseat bingo is.

Not everything changes as much as we believe it does.
