The Jargon File

Spangle

1) The single form of bells and whistles.

2) The first thing anybody says when you say "You know you were born in the 80's if you remember..." because people are stupid.  Spangles ceased production in the early 80's, therefore, you must have been born in the 1970's to remember them.  It seems to be that in an an attempt to conform, everybody pretends to remember a sweet they never tasted.
