The Near Extinction of A Once Ubiquitous Kid Phrase

Ladies and Gentlemen,

I am extremely sad to bring you the news of the survival status of a once common kid's phrase.

Many of you who were born before the 1980's would be able to share my sentiments.

As children at the playground, at school, at races, etc., we've always muttered those infamous words. It was in our vocabulary when we were less than 0.90metres tall.

Now, children scream "Ready. Get Set. GO!".

Yes. With the rapidly decreasing popularity of the cassette tape, the phrase
"Ready. Cassette. GO!" will join the league of the dinosaurs soon.

It's so sad, isn't it?
