Welcome to 2015! I hope you had a great 2014 and that 2015 is even better. And what better way to start off 2015 than with a Friday Funnies joke. Have you ever wondered why people born between 1980 and 2010 are called Generation Y? I have and today I got this email titled Y Chromosome. I thought it had a fair bit of truth in it and that it was pretty funny. But before I tell you why they’re called Generation Y I’m going to give you the email in it’s entirety.
The Naming Of Generation Y
People born before 1946 are called – The Greatest Generation.
People born between 1946 and 1964 are called – The Baby Boomers.
People born between 1965 and 1979 are called – Generation X.
And people born between 1980 and 2010 are called – Generation Y.
Why do we call the last group -Generation Y ?
Y should I get a job?
Y should I leave home and find my own place?
Y should I get a car when I can borrow yours?
Y should I clean my room?
Y should I wash and iron my own clothes?
Y should I buy any food?
But perhaps a cartoonist explained it most eloquently below…
Yep, I reckon that cartoonist nailed it!
That’s the first of the Friday Funnies for 2015. I hope you enjoyed it and that 2015 brings you all that you could wish for.
