T. Rex: I don't want a hit single to be a pop star...
T. Rex: I want to be a PUNCHLINE!
T. Rex: Think about it: you namedrop Wang Chung, you get instant hilarity.
Dromiceiomimus: Except to anyone under 35.
T. Rex: Uh, Dromi? It's not from the 50s???
Utahraptor: That's the limit of your ambitions? Cheap reference for hack comics?
T. Rex: Counterpoint: remember Ugly Kid Joe???
Utahraptor: No, not really. I was born in 1994.
T. Rex: Oh.
T. Rex: ...Well, they were pretty wacky.
T. Rex: Yup.
T. Rex: Pretty wacky guys

Speaking as an under-35 (at least for the moment), I think Dromiceiomimus is underestimating the timeless cross-generational appeal of the "Everybody Have Fun Tonight" hitmakers. But on the other hand I suspect many people born before 1994 don't remember Ugly Kid Joe either.
