A stunning senior moment

A stunning senior moment

Apparently, a self-important college freshman attending a recent football game took it upon himself to explain to a senior citizen sitting next to him why it was impossible for the older generation to understand his generation.

'You grew up in a different world, actually an almost primitive one ', the student said, loud enough for many of those nearby to hear. The young people of today grew up with;

Television
Jet planes
Space travel
Man walking on the moon
Our space probes have visited Mars
We have nuclear energy, ships and electric and hydrogen cars
Cell phones
Computers with light-speed processing...and more. '

After a brief silence, the senior citizen responded as follows:


'You're right, son. We didn't have those things when we were young ........so we invented them. Now, you arrogant little ****, what are you doing for the next generation?
'The applause was deafening.......


It's not the will to win, but the will to prepare to win that makes the difference.
- Paul "Bear" Bryant (Former college football coach)

LMBO, thanks for sharing AL

I am concerned for the security of our great Nation; not so much because of any threat from without, but because of the insidious forces working from within. Douglas MacArthur
