funny piece of teen advice, 26 October 2004
Author: beckydi from Maidstone, Kent, England

This is hilarious stuff! Poor old Ginny. She tries so hard to be popular by 'parking' with the boys in their cars - but where does it get her?

Do you think this piece is possibly about underage sex?!

The good girl is actually the most annoying of the two - far too smug. But the dating scenario is very insightful and realistic. O.k, I'm being sarcastic now! Considering I'm from England where we don't really do the dating thing, this is pure class. Wooden acting, authoritive male voice over, 2.4 family, typical 1950s suburban white middle classes, ice skating parties, high school canteen - it all adds up to a nice piece of kitsch Americana. Obviously intended to be taken seriously (much in the same way as 'Reefer madness')it is now, in the light of contemporary cultural context, very funny and entertaining.

Definitely worth a look!
