remember the Scat man?
He was cooool :D
Apparently he’s dead now… I guess poo isn’t good for you after all

Here he is looking his best

I remember them all. I was born in 82, though.

The worst thing is, I've still got CDs with those songs on, can still remember the lyrics to Fresh Prince of Bel Air and can still do the Macarena and Whigfield :oops:
