Wow. That smarts a little. I saw Animal House in...6th grade? 7th? I had to convince all the seniors in our church youth group—which my parents led—to tell Mom and Dad it was TOTALLY appropriate for a 12 year old.
There was a lot of stuff I didn't get. What I did get, and love: Pretty much everything John Belushi did. Hopping across campus like some kind of psycho ninja. Being a zit. The "nothing is over 'til we say it's over" speech. And, for some weird reason, the fact that he keeps saying "Holy shit-TH" after they accidentally kill the horse.
But wow. 30 years. That just sounds like a really long time.
