Telephones: everyone uses them. Doctors, lawyers, moms and even pop culture icons need to make phone calls. While we favor cell phones over landlines, many of these incredibly awesome (and pop culturally-significant) phones had curly cords.
Today we bring you a fun list of 5 of the most pop culturally-significant phones.
Juno’s Hamburger Phone
Juno famously tells the person on the other end “Can you hold on for a second? I’m on my hamburger phone. It’s just like really awkward to talk on.” We still want to know if she got fries with that phone.
The Jersey Shore Mallard Duck Phone
Regardless of how you feel about the show, it’s definitely a pop culture sensation. One of the strangest parts of the show is not the incessant partying or fist-pumping, but the phone shaped like a Mallard Duck. Why? The better question is “Why not?”
Clarissa Explains it All’s Anatomy Phone
Clarissa Darling was a 90s teen that 90s teen girls wanted to be BFFs with. As her pre-adolescent concerns (boys, pimples, annoying siblings) played out onscreen, she made regular phone calls on her super cool anatomy phone.
Zack Morris’ Brick Phone
We mentioned Zack’s brick phone in our story about phones in entertainment. However, this beast of a phone is truly a pop culture icon. It’s so popular it even has its own YouTube video.
The Flinstones Dino Phone
You might think your iPhone 3GS is a dinosaur phone due to the release of the iPhone 4S, but you’ve got nothing on the Flinstones. However, they were way ahead of their time when it came to telecommunications.
What pop culture phones will we be writing about ten years from now? Perhaps these will still be on the list, or maybe some wilder, wackier and more outrageous phones will have infiltrated pop culture. We can’t wait to find out.
