Silly Bandz are So Dunzo

According to a Consumerist report from the teenage frontlines—that would be a movie theater concession stand in North Carolina—Silly Bandz are so, like, over. "I was at the movies recently in Charlotte, NC and saw a few Silly Bandz sitting on the cash register behind the concession stand. I turned to a local high school junior who babysits for several local families and asked if they were still a hit amongst the actual youth. '[For high schoolers] they were big this summer but not now that school has started... the middle schoolers stopped wearing them a year ago,' she said." [Consumerist]
