For those who didn’t know, “Okay, Boomer” is a disparaging comment in reference to a member of the Baby Boomer generation. It’s also, quite possibly, the funniest one-line put down to come out in the last 20 years.
I laugh every time I hear it – and thankfully, I’m a Gen-X’er so I can use it, too. Boomer.
So, one of the younger kids in our office waltzes into my office and says, “Hey, did you hear Mötley Crüe is going on tour with Poison and Def Leppard?”
Now this is cause for my heart rate to quicken a little bit. I’m a HUGE Crüe fan. I’ve seen them every time they came to Detroit since the late ’80’s…
Then, he looks me dead in the face and says, “Yeah, that’s my grandma’s favorite”.
