In the United States, at the time of writing, there are somewhere around 69 (nice) million Baby Boomers in the population.

They’ve gifted everyone with so much, and it’s time to celebrate that.

Specifically with these observations from whipper-snappers on Twitter.

15. Can you spare a dime

Wait, I say this too. Am I a boomer?

14. Barks and bites

And yet now that you mention it I have some concerns.

13. Run the risk

Stop pretending you don’t have all the national wealth, grandpa.

12. Believe you me

Somehow I doubt me you a little bit.

11. Purple people eater

Ok but like…imagine if for some reason purple people started existing.
Look me in the eye and tell me that older generations would be cool with it and not UTTERLY lose their minds.

10. Here kitty kitty

I’ve heard it both ways so much I don’t even know which is right anymore.

9. Bring the corn

I will never financially recover from this.

8. Need the drops

I think everyone above a certain age sort of thinks they’re a farmer.

7. Rude dude

It’s not accidental if it’s premeditated.

6. Listen up

Ironically, it probably is.


5. Free for all

And every cashier laughs, because they’ve definitely never heard that before.

4. Smoke ’em up

Do you even vape bro?

3. Of course!

Bruh have you even watched Seinfeld?


2. Nuke it

The future is now.

1. So exotic

It’s the little things in life.

Thank you, boomers, for these wonderful cultural treasures.

What’s something your generation is known for saying?
