Get Off, My Lawn

There was some of us at work bullshitting on break the other day and we got to talking about old TV shows, cartoons, commercials and such as that.

I brought up one from pretty far back I’ll admit but I was shocked when this 40 year old guy said he had never heard of them, even after I described it.

Are you fucking kidding me.

Never heard of the Keystone Kops even as old as 40.

There was another young guy there who is 23.
He had never heard of 80% of all the stuff we talked about.

Jesus.
I’m going to be 58 here real shortly if I last that long.
I guess I really am getting old.

  1. To anyone younger than 40, everything before and including the Moon Landings is like telling them about trench warfare in WWI, the Middle Ages, or dinosaurs and cave men. Anyone born after 1990 is a permanent Baby Duck, and probably will be forever.

    And that’s before we get to the part where most of those dipsticks couldn’t pass a 4th-grade US history exam from 50 years ago, or a basic geography test anytime.

    Like perpetual new employees, all they can find is the exit, the time clock, the cafeteria, and the bathroom, throughout most of their entire lives. And the time clock is optional.

  2. I still still watch The Little Rascals, Marx Brothers and Abbot and Costello for the slap stick comedy and pity those who think Jimmy Kimmel is humorous

  3. “Looney Tunes” and “Merry Melodies” are timeless. “The 3 stooges” is timeless. Almost any Mel Brooks movie is timeless. Good shit doesn’t go bad.
