#MyAgeInAPhrase is trending on Twitter and the answers are all different and brilliant
"Back in my day"...
Twitter is a fantastic place where people just start random hashtags about anything in the hope that a big old thread of answers will follow.
We don't know who exactly started this one but hats off to them whoever it was.
My age in a phrase is trending on tinder and what is so fantastic about it is that, while it gives you a fair idea of what era the person might be from, it doesn't actually reveal their proper age.
The feed was refreshing every few seconds with tens of answers each time but here are a few that we decided to pick out and talk about.

Ross is one of the funniest characters on Friends. This phrase is still thrown out from time to time and whether you watched Friends in real time back in the 90s or know this from the millions of re-runs, it's still a classic.
I'm "In west Philadelphia born and raised, on the playground was where I spent most of my days" years old.

Not sure if Scott is referring to the first time someone landed on the moon or if he's on about Michael Jackson's moonwalk.
