"Most of the cultural crimes I talk about can be blamed on the "Baby Boomers", another topic I'm tired of hearing about. The Baby Boomers... Whiny, narcissistic, self-indulgent people with a simple philosophy: "GIMME IT! IT'S MINE!"
These people were given everything. Everything was handed to them and they took it all. Sex, Drugs and Rock N Roll. They stayed loaded for twenty years and had a free ride. Now they're staring down the barrel of middle-aged burnout, and they don't like it so they turn self-righteous. They want to make things harder on younger people. They tell them: abstain from sex, say no to drugs, and as for Rock N Roll, they sold them to television commercials a long time ago, so they could buy pasta machines, Stair-Masters and soy bean futures.
They are cold, bloodless people. It's in their slogans. It's in their rhetoric. "No Pain, No Gain". "Just Do It". "Life Is Short, Play Hard". "Shit Happens, Deal With It". "Get A Life"... These people went from "Do Your Own Thing" to "Just Say No". They went from "Love Is All You Need" to "Whoever Ends Up With The Most Toys Wins". They went from cocaine to Rogaine. They are still counting grams, only now it's fat grams.
The worst of it is that the rest of us have to watch these commercials on TV for Levi's Loose-Fitting Jeans and Fat-Ass Docker pants. Because these degenerate, Yuppie, Boomer cocksuckers couldn't keep their hands off the croissants and the Haugen Daz.
Fuck these Boomers. Fuck these Yuppies
And fuck everybody, now that I think of it."
--George Carlin, 1996
