Seriously, what the actual fuck is with his generation’s pride in being ignorant of anything before 1990. I guess he doesn’t know who Jimi Hendrix, LBJ, Laurel & Hardy, Vivian Leigh, Al Jolsen, Life magazine, Beethoven, hell, the New Testament he’s always quoting. “Before my time” is the stupid ass’ retort.
I discovered Mad comics, the precursor to the mag, almost 30 years after they were published and they were still funny. I admit I didn’t get all the references, but it spurred me to find out what the joke was and I didn’t have Google to do it either.
In fact, that’s what the fuck is wrong with Mayor Buttplug’s generation: he wants to find out about something, the Googles it, gets a one sentence explanation and thinks he knows what’s up now. That’s why he doesn’t know shit. about any cultural event before he was a teenager, which is a disgrace and a reflection of his intellectual incuriosity. Stupid fuck.
