Jimi's Star-Spangled Banner
JIMI'S STAR-SPANGLED BANNER
Rank: Blade T
Nominated by T

In 1969, tension was high as many Americans were unhappy with the War in Vietnam. So naturally, when Jimi Hendrix performed his rendition of the Star-Spangled Banner (with bombs bursting in air) people took it as a political statement. But Jimi says it simply sounded "beautiful". He gave life to something that he believed had grown stagnant. His version of the National Anthem has become a symbol of the 1960's.

Easy Bake(R) Oven
EASY BAKE(R) OVEN
Rank: Pepper G-willi
Nominated by G-willi

The Easy-Bake(R) Oven deserves it's place in the National Toy Hall of Fame. But, the Easy-Bake Oven is more than a toy; it is a real mini-oven that bakes up personal cakes by the heat of a light bulb. These cute mini-ovens, often styled in pink, can be operated from the convenience of a bedroom closet. They are the perfect gift for any bachelor that is confident in his masculinity. And, if you bring-one to the office Christmas gift exchange, you will quickly learn which of your co-workers were gypped on their childhood.
