    Just had the piss gently taken out of me in the office due to my  quite markedly receding hairline.

    When I retorted with

    ” It’s not baldness, I suffer from premature Kojak-ulation”

    I was treated to  a shocked, tumbleweed laden silence.

    It was only then that I realised that I was the only person in the place old enough to have ever been alive when Kojak was a common cultural reference.

    I didn’t even follow up with my Ray Reardon references.

    I’m only 47 but, today, I feel very, very old.

    I remember Kojak. My Grandad loved it.

    Ha, there must have been loads of times in the past when I failed to laugh at my Dad. Now I understand why.

    47? Not that premature.

    Not that premature.

    I’ve been using the same line since I was 26.

    It’s better than that broccoli joke that just won the fringe…

    I mentioned JR Hartley to a colleague recently and he looked at me blankly. That BT advert came out in 1983. My colleague was born in 1997. I felt very old at that point.

    I used to go to a Crossfit gym and whenever an 80s hit came on their stereo I would think back to when I bought the album etc and then realise that no one else in the gym had been born back then…..

    I think your audience were just a crocker thickos. Kojak was remade in 2005 starring Ving Rhames as the bald fella. Everyone knows that 😀

    Two of my colleagues don’t know what a photocopier is.

    To them it’s a “3 in 1” or “scan to print” machine. Although the idea of copying physical media is kinda of alien to them.

    I’m not really into football but I was having a conversation with a younger work colleague who mentioned: “Jordi Cruyff is a really good player”

    “Not as good as his dad though.” I replied.

    Pause …

    “Who?”

    For some reason a conversation with a colleague got onto morning facial massage routines. I mentioned American Psycho, she looked totally blank and said “I don’t know that film”

    in a pub the other week, and the card machine stopped working.

    “What did you do????” exclaimed my twentysomething colleagues, when I came back from the bar.

    “I…paid with cash. I usually take cash with me on a night out,” says I.

    “Wow, that’s really oldschool!”

    Er, is it?

    Nah, Kodiak was better. Drafting a backwoods bear into the NYPD with hilarious fish out of water consequences. IIRC they based Due South on it.

    Kojak is long overdue a reboot. I was going to post this when I saw that Telly Savalas did Aberdeen too.

    Straw poll: Who’d play Kojak in a remake?

    These young people….

    Colleague of mine…I lost my fountain pen. She was like “a wut?”. Never heard of a fountain pen. Mind you, same colleague announced to the office that “I’ve just eaten an orange!” she’d never had one before. 23 years old. Barely lived. Oh, same colleague – “you’re the same age as my mom, you’re old enough to be my dad!”.

    Thanks.

    I work with someone who has never bought a CD, never been in a music shop.

    And didn’t know what a mix tape was. I don’t think he really knew what a tape was.

    I occasionally forget that most outside the NHS and emergency services don’t have a very dark sense of humour. A pun a or retort to unfortunate situation can be met with silence and cold states.

    Ffs did you not read the OP? Perchypanther obviously. Although I’m sure Harry Hill’s agent is on the case too.

    I can’t do it.

    I’m already committed to play Ray Reardon in a remake of Pot Black.
