Millennials have gained a reputation for a number of things as our global takeover slowly progresses, with Generation-Y either changing the way things are done forever or slowly destroying the world as we know it (depending on whom you ask).
One of our defining features is a love of white text placed over image macros to make a point about something — or, as they’re more commonly referred to: “memes.”
Whether it’s a stock photo model complaining about dirty dishes or animals giving life advice, there’s a meme for basically every situation. And if there isn’t, you’re free to make one up.
That’s what the person behind “Scumbag Baby Boomer” did, and the result is a bunch of passive aggressive statements pointing out hypocrisy (but the overall execution could probably support a number of the hypothetical complaints from older generations…).
In that sense, it’s the perfect meme: It might not stand up to much criticism, but it might make you look at things a little bit differently before moving on with your life.
