The Lighter Side


With world media again being dominated by yet another senseless act of violence, I refer to the terrorist attack in Lahore yesterday targeted at the Sri Lankan cricketers; I felt that for today’s post we would keep it light and humorous in the hope that it will bring a smile to peoples faces.

There is an e-mail doing the rounds that upon opening, immediately caused me to crack up, (no pun intended) as it reminded me of my girlfriend’s teenage son and his mates; the only thing missing is the skateboard under the caricatures arm. It was worded as follows:

What is Generation Y?

Hmm, I've always wondered this myself. Now I know.

- The Silent generation, people born before 1946.
- Baby Boomers, people born between 1946 and 1959.
- Generation X, people born between 1960 and 1979.
- Generation Y, people born between 1980 and 1995

Why do we call the last one generation Y? I did not know, but a cartoonist explains it eloquently (See above pic) ...Learned something new today!
