Another sign I'm getting old...

I was watching The Walking Dead last night with my 19 yr old son and a bunch of his friends at my house.

That Geico commercial came on with Gallagher running up and smashing the watermelons. I thought it was hilarious.

Nobody else thought it was funny; they had never heard of Gallagher...

Yep... 44 is the new 70...

You think that's bad?

I was over at a buddy's house and one of his kid's friends (13yo) had NEVER heard of AC/DC!

WTF?

I told my 6 year old nephew that I didn't have a cell phone when I was a kid.
"WHAT, why?!" He demanded.
"because they weren't invented yet..."
"WHAT?!" he didn't believe me.
Then I said, "Do you know what a VCR is?"
"noo..."

Ya'll are funny. I usually preface stories to my kids by saying "back in the late nineteen hundreds..."

When I was a kid I thought the USMC hymn was 400 years old.

I'm just about your age but gotta say, I never found Gallagher funny (especially the whole watermelon thing.)

I took the cushions off my parents sofa and jumped on it because I saw Gallagher do it on one of his comedy specials back in 88.

BTW,his sofa was really a trampoline.It took me a few years to finally realize that.

I was having coffee downtown one day and found some documents belonging to one "Charles Bronson" sitting on a chair. I turned them in to the store manager (guy around 30+ yo) and asked him, "So Charles Bronson comes in here, huh?"

His response: "Who?"

Of course, I told my son that story and he said "Who?"

Fun. I've since been immersing him in the classics.

One of the things I use to like about having a Florida CCW.... Signed by Charles Bronson.

Gallagher was after my silly days so I found him not funny... Still goes. I would laugh out loud if he would smash that green lizard though!!!

Not knowing Gallagher isn't necessarily a sign of youth. I had to call on Google for help. Even then, I didn't recognize him when I found his picture. I'm 75.

Something like a third of the students (18-20 year olds) did not know AC/DC.

I immediately stopped the class and dug out my iPod. Some things are more important than physics.

Mr.C has had a few similar experiences teaching his classes!

I can't get one line from the commercial out of my head, "does your cauliflower have a big carbon footprint?"

Don't know why, but it just makes me laugh every time.
