Generation X, or Gen X, encompasses everyone born between the years of 1965 and 1980. Gen Xers are known for being direct, independent, and straight-forward.

The generation also came of age during the glory years of MTV, and are associated with the grunge subgenre that sprang up in the 1990s.

Gen Xers definitely have their own brand of humor, and it’s not always immediately accessible to people who are from other generations.

Here are 15 tweets that anyone born in Gen X will get, but that just might not be that funny to literally anyone else.
