other weirdness about this new generation

My children were watching a teen show and over the course of days I kept seeing a recurring commercial.  At first I thought they were part of the show but then I realized it was a real product they were advertising.  The first one was fake pimples and shows three kids in the school hallway and one pops a fake zit, grossing out the girls he is talking to as white puss oozes out of it.  The other is a pad on the floor similar to hop scotch size, and a few scattered brown gooey blobs and a girl walking barefoot blindfolded trying not to "step in it" the add says.  yes, fake poop .

 

If our youth have become this idle and have sol little to do then perhaps we all should get them a pen full of chickens where they really have to work to "not step in it" and gather eggs with "it" all over them.

I saw the fake zits ad and was rendered speechless! I understand that to some kids, gross is an art form to be explored, but good Lord, this is just ........... I have no words!

I guess I was a bit strange when I was younger.  We used to go around and gather up dog poop with a shovel, put it in a paper bag, go to the house of someone we did not like, put the bag on the front steps.  Then we set the bag on fire, rang the doorbell and run!  Usually someone would come and stomp on the bag to put it out...

 

But we never used fake poop.....

We put a dead bird we had found in a classmates locker. We did not consider that the following week was spring break. When we returned his locker was a teaming mass of maggots.

This gag stuff, fake barf, fake poop, whoopee cushions, a ton of other things is as old as the hills. I'm 70 and I remember that stuff; we thought it was hilarious.

 

There were shops, ads in the comic books, etc.

 

We oldtimers need to guard against old-fogeyism, especially when the stuff we complain about is the same stuff we did!

 

Though we didn't have fake zits-- that's a good one.....

Old Fogeyism?...that’s hilarious.

 

 

“Mr. Smith, you have Old Fogeyism. I’m sorry but I am going to have to kick you in the arse...That is the only cure we know...you should’ve thought about that hip before you let yourself get this way, now turn around...Go on...” :D
