What can I say . . .

I just love a good gotcha, don't you?

A very self-important college freshman was attending a recent football game. He took it upon himself to explain to a senior citizen sitting next to him why it was impossible for the older generation to understand his generation.

"You grew up in a different world, actually an almost primitive one," the student said, loud enough for many of those nearby to hear. "The young people of today grew up with television, jet planes, space travel, man walking on the moon, our spaceships have visited Mars. We have nuclear energy, electric and hydrogen cars, computers with light-speed processing, and....," pausing to take another drink of beer.

The Senior took advantage of the break in the student's litany and said, "You're right, son. We didn't have those things when we were we invented them. Now, you arrogant little sh*thead, what are you doing for the next generation?"

The applause was deafening.
I will try to create something in my scraproom and get back to you.

Thanks for tuning in.


  1. Great story, thanks, Leslie! I wish more of the younger generation would simply say "Thanks" to the elders! And take off their hats when going indoors, respect the flag and actually say or sing the pledge and song words, and ... well, I'll jump off my soapbox now.

  2. LOL!! Awesome! I'm of the younger generation but I have a huge love of elderly and previous generations and know we wouldn't be where we are today without the hard work of those that have gone before us! My generation is a whole lot lazier sadly!!
