As I mentioned in my last post, I'm the type of mom that is more prone to laugh when my son substitutes words for male genitals in a song than I am to give him a stern admonition about the propriety of doing so. I have also said (and probably demonstrated) that my unsophisticated sense of humor is stalled at a level on par with a 9 year old boy.
But every now and then, the generation gap rears its ugly head and waves a bony finger in my face to say "You're not so cool. You don't get it old lady. Go take some Geritol and floss your dentures." Those times are usually the YouTube times.
My daughter has become obsessed with making and viewing YouTube videos. The content that she puts out there is very silly and usually aimed at professing love for Miley Cyrus or whatever. Harmless, really. It's when she runs down to me, laptop in hand, to excitedly show me someone else's new, "hilarious" video that has 3 Million views. I appease her and watch them, but more often than not, I am left with a blank expression, muttering "Three million views. I don't get it.".
Here is a partial list of videos that she has shown me recently, that are totally lost on me. Please tell me that I'm not crazy and that you do not find them blisteringly funny. If you do find them funny, I will know that it is a flag of the defeat of my brain by the aging process.
Depending on your comments, I will either:
a) buy a cool new pair of boots and big, sparkly earrings
b) Buy a walker and orthopedic shoes.
My fate is in your hands. . .

I weep for the youth of America. Except when Homestarrunner is on. Now that shit's just funny.
