    Hilarious Fred !😃😁😃😁😃😁😃! Almost wanted to stop, and take some notes, from making some good " One liner" jokes. Very clever indeed ! Liked the Bruce Jenner, and Al Frankin, examples. Had me rolling ! 😃👍

    First music piece was, "The Typewriter" by Leroy Anderson. I was also used as a boomer "remote control" by my parents. I still call computer apps "programs". Best cartoon ever for a boomer? That is a matter of taste — The Flintstones ran longer than Johnny Quest. However, each of the other comparisons were all too true, and very funny, too! As the old saying goes, "The more things change, the more they stay the same." Keep up the good work.

    Sorry, not working for me!  As a boomer in my mid 50's, I feel quite comfortable with technology and started using then new early home computers back in the early 1980's and an early adopter of quality technology. Facebook? Forget it! Streaming? Absolutely ? Cable/Satellite TV? Are you kidding? Baby boomers laid the foundation for our current digital state. One thing that I see with regards to millennials is they seem to be the servant of technology rather than the master. I use my many devices when it suits me, not the other way round.

    I thought about something the other day regarding recycling. We did a hell of a good job with glass pop bottles. Every house I went to had empties sitting in the garage or by their trash can or fridge. When Mom and Dad went grocery shopping they took them along to cash in. When you walked in the store the first thing you saw was the stack of empties people had recently dropped off. Typically an employee would write you a little note for the cashier to know how many you had. And for the pop that got drank in the car, they would be tossed along the side of the road. Some kid {me} would eventually come along and pick them up to cash in. It was a system that worked. Recycling plastic bottles – sorry, I don't have a story for that.

    I enjoyed your video! I was born in 1959. I’m very proud and so glad to be a baby boomer and have grown up in the 50’s, 60’s, and 70’s. Baby boomers also tend to have much better work ethics than the millennials. They had to work hard for things and were not handed down on a silver platter.

    Although this video made me smile, we really should give the Boomers more credit Yes, we grew up old school, ( which I wouldn't change a thing ) but give us credit for having the ability to adapt to change. . Steve Job and Bill Gates were/are visionary boomers ( lets not forget them )
    .. I wonder without their insight of the future ( and their fortitude to transform )…. where would Gen Y be without their IGadgets… The Boomers changed from old school to new.
    Do you really think that most of the Gen Y generation can change from New school to Old?

    Where they showed in the video text that baby boomers were from 1945 to 1965 is NOT TRUE AT ALL!!!  Go figure if a woman was born in 1945 and had her first child in 1958 then how the hell could some human born as late as 1965 be of her generation when her child would be age 7 already OR she produced a baby boomer child her self and the person born in 1965 would be younger than the supposed boomers child?  LOL??   That's a total JOKE and is just not true.  Also go figure when I was age 18 in 1974 that person born in 1965 would only be 9 years old.  Heres how it really goes .  People born in 1945 to 1950 were simply the younger brothers and sisters of people born in te 1930s war two generation.  I am age 61 right now and my mother was born in 1936 and her sister was born in 1944 well hear this as in when I was a boy age 6 in 1962 my Aunt Erjuanna was in the same league as my parents as far as having babies and being married and having a house and the thinking of a person born in 1945 is nothing like tat of someone like me that was born in 1956 but instead was like my parents born in the 1930s.  It was also always believed that my boomer generation was the adulst and makers of rock music groups in the year 1969 or so per say BULLSHIIT.  As a small example Michell Philips of the mamas and papas group and other were up in the age range of 25 when I was only age 13 so go figure again.  Boomers like me with similar ways and thinking and style is 1952 to 1961 and that's it!!!!  People born in 1945 I repeat again are just like people born in the 1930s.  And I assure anyone that in 1974 when I was age 18 no 9 year old kid was anything like I was period!!!!
