Not a boomer (I was born in 1970), but I got 18/20. I missed the Dylan one (Imthought it was "over 40") and the Pogo one.

I'm a "millennial" or so I've been told and I got about 15/20.


Many of those are so ingrained into American pop culture that it would be hard not to know some of them.

19 out of 20 but in my defense, I never read Pogo much, I was a Blondie fan.

I am 29, and have been for 39 years. Got 'em all. Anyone here know what L/S/M/F/T means? Or is that too easy with this crowd? Or do they still use it?
