Over vs. Overdue for a Comeback

I am pleased to share with you my first Over/Overdue for a Comeback list. The Overdue for a Comeback component of my list has been a long time in the making. Coolio has been on this list since 1999. It was with a heavy heart that I removed Whitney Houston from the list last fall.

The Over list, however, is constantly changing. You can't step into the same Over list twice. Once something has been Over long enough, I'm too over it to even acknowledge it on the list. And once something is THAT Over, it's due to wind up on the Overdue for a Comeback list before too long anyway.

I have painstakingly culled this list with the help of a highly discerning team of Internet experts. Thanks to those who helped me brainstorm.

Without further adieu, I present to you:

Talk Like a Pirate Day
Keep Calm and Whatever Whatever
neons with neutrals
QR codes
Justin Timberlake (actor)
fake wayfarers with neon arms

*Eating cupcakes will never be over, I'm just over it as a thing.

**Eating bacon will never be over. But can we please pick another tasty symbol of American decadence??

Debbie Gibson hats
side ponytails
Planters Cheez Balls
body glitter
girl groups
Justin Timberlake (singer)
cottage cheese**

*Apparently I was not alone on this one

**I know you're scoffing, but who could have predicted the recent meteoric rise of Greek yogurt?

So if anyone needs me, I'll be listening to "Fantastic Voyage" and trying to figure out how to fit my Debbie Gibson hat over my side ponytail.

Discussion Question: What's Over and what's Overdue for a Comeback in your part of the world?
