      I was sitting talking to brothers-in-law about something when his 15 year old said “ok boomer”. After he picked up himself off the floor I ask him where he heard that phrase and asked him if he knew what it meant. He said he heard it at school and had no idea what it meant. His father told him never to say that ever again. He has never repeated again.

      If Jack Benny was still alive today, he would be a millenial because he is 39 years old, haha.

    9. Dragonaut111

      It's only offensive in a sense of why should we listen to such a privileged generation who collectively had all the opurtunities open to them and still most have to work into their old age? How does that even happen? Even as a millenial i'm on course to retire far before 60, we won't even mention housing or the enviroment.

      nothing but boomerism but okay boomer keep on believing in your own delusions and constantly continuing the damage and environment and the general public health with all your legal and illegal substances you purchase yourself and introducing covid-19 into the world with your lack of self awareness and extreme lack of self care and responsibilities towards your own children and pets and general public/population but anyways ok boomer you keep on destroying the earth and the environment we live on and Mother Nature going maximum overdrive towards your extinction with covid-19 you do you boomer

    12. Nameless Ghost

      All generations are shit.

    13. Boi Boi

      Being a boomer is like going for a 40 year long party and expecting everyone else to pay for it.

      Let It Go Lyrics The snow glows white on the mountain tonight Not a footprint to be seen A kingdom of isolation And it looks like I'm the queen The wind is howling like this swirling storm inside Couldn't keep it in, heaven knows I tried! Don't let them in, don't let them see Be the good girl you always have to be Conceal, don't feel, don't let them know Well, now they know! Let it go, let it go Can't hold it back anymore Let it go, let it go Turn away and slam the door! I don't care What they're going to say Let the storm rage on The cold never bothered me anyway! It's funny how some distance Makes everything seem small And the fears that once controlled me Can't get to me at all! It's time to see what I can do To test the limits and break through No right, no wrong, no rules for me I'm free! Let it go, let it go I am one with the wind and sky Let it go, let it go You'll never see me cry! Here I stand And here I'll stay Let the storm rage on! My power flurries through the air into the ground My soul is spiraling in frozen fractals all around And one thought crystallizes like an icy blast I'm never going back The past is in the past! Let it go, let it go And I'll rise like the break of dawn Let it go, let it go That perfect girl is gone! Here I stand In the light of day Let the storm rage on The cold never bothered me anyway!

      God, he's so unfunny his jokes they hurt my soul I've seen kids in the cancer ward and the starving children of Africa get more laughs if this gets put into trending by buying his way on to youtubes No.1 simp list. I'm going to have to make a pact with the Boomers to remove the curse that God bestowed upon man for making pickle Rick.

    22. Clorox Bleach

      Boomers were actually total friggin libtards in their youth. Most haven't changed.

    23. Clorox Bleach

      I'm what many would call Alt-right and I use "OK boomer." It's the only thing you can do with most of them. They're not even that conservative. All they care about is them. If you don't fit my generalization, congratu-frickin-lations.

      I was born in 2000 so figure whatever generation you want for that. I happen to know that fools running around saying okboomer are ignorant, childish arseholes so who cares what some low IQ nut says about anything? No one is really offended. People simply feel sorry for the most immature idiots is all.

        those geriatrics , who gave them that stupid name 'millenials' ,

      I read other mocking remarks about how Boomers were just trying to keep up with young people on how to use the Internet. AAAAA-hole; don't they know the Internet was INVENTED by a Boomer, Tim Berners-Lee. Millennials are just mindlessly using Boomer technology. OMG!!!!👍🐱😄💩 Simpletons.

    50. mole rat

      🎶 Your Day Will Come 🎶 lollol When you've been the victim of ageism at work and at school it ceases to be funny. Despite the description above, of this show, that OK Boomer is just "teasing", I've never seen it applied in that manner; it's always been demeaning, mocking. Do these jackasses even know the origin of the word? There was a boom in babies because horny soldiers back from WWⅡ couldn't stop fucking and fucking and fucking . . . and fucking and fucking. Millennials - the OMG Generation.

    52. Albert Nave

      I can't believe our little joke became this serious. Is this how trolls feel when they do something "for the lulz"? The power, the pride, it's invigorating!

    53. Tolerance

      When was it fine to disrespect your elders (e.g your parents)?

    54. Puddington

      Only Boomers can say 'Boomer' with a hard R.

    55. DigiFolk

      ok boomer isnt really an insult, its just saying ok followed by the generation... like ok millenial, or ok gen zer ... but we shouldnt use dismissive terms, we need to get past it, cuz were just sinking to the "boomers" level eye for an eye leaves the world blind (cheesy but true)

      1. DigiFolk

        @Abu Ali al-Husayn ibn Abdillah ibn Sina snowflake is somewhat more insulting because snowflake is a made up term aimed to insult the younger generation. Boomer was already an established term by the boomers themselves. But "snowflake" and "boomer" are used both as a dismissive term, which is not necessary if you have an intelligent argument. imo basically, anything can be an insult if its said in a dismissive manner. if i walk up to a group of plumbers and said "ok plumber", with a dismissive tone, it would come across as insulting.

      2. Abu Ali al-Husayn ibn Abdillah ibn Sina

        yep , like ok snowflake

      I know I'm late to this, but the mindset for older generations in any point in time is "respect your elders" and the younger generations have the mindset "respect is earned" which is why this whole issue started. The older generations disrespect the younger ones and expect respect in return but don't get any. People will adopt the ideas which benefit them while also feeling the need to feel oppressed. Remember when the boomers and gen x started cracking "Back in my day" jokes? Same thing. Now it's "Offensive" and "The New N-Word" like they haven't been calling the younger generations snowflakes for years. Do you know why they're snowflakes? You raised them to be. Respecting those who are older than you just because you're supposed to is, in my opinion, being obedient rather than a good person.

    61. JimmyG

      I don't know what it is but "ok boomer" is my favorite meme of all time

    62. okokok okokok

      Who can’t love calling someone a boomer, so insecure about their irrelevance they act like it’s a disease, god bless the fucking internet

    63. TwinGunsLLP

      Ok Boomer. Ok millenial, stfu and get back to work. My social security payment isn't going to make itself. #WIN

      Perfect ok boomer face

    66. Sam1982 whittingham

      A lot of the time ok boomer is used to dismiss anything an elderly person says. Is pretty much ageism and bullying if you ask me

      1. Abu Ali al-Husayn ibn Abdillah ibn Sina

        @111 111 Maybe I still would becouse I am still learning english :) you on the other side being a native speaker could improve your senteves though :)

      2. 111 111

        ​@Abu Ali al-Husayn ibn Abdillah ibn Sina Well maybe if you were as attentive to your comments as you want me to be, you wouldn't make so many grammar mistakes. :)

      3. Abu Ali al-Husayn ibn Abdillah ibn Sina

        @111 111 At least it shows to attentive reader that someone is joking :)

      4. 111 111

        @Abu Ali al-Husayn ibn Abdillah ibn Sina Ahh yes because every trolling post has to have a :) at the end. That's how you know it's a troll.

      5. Abu Ali al-Husayn ibn Abdillah ibn Sina

        @111 111 If you paid attention you would notice a smile in my first reply to you, but you do not read other people post and you probably do not listen well iether :)

    67. anik monette

      I watched several of these and I still don't get it... I mean, the OK Boomer meme. Yes, I know. It has been explained multiple times but the fuss about it is so stupid that I can't even!

      Ageism 😒

      1. 111 111

        @Abu Ali al-Husayn ibn Abdillah ibn Sina You do realize why that comment is hypocritical, right? You're dismissing something someone says purely based on your preconceived notion of what millennials are like. That's why you're getting upset at people using the phrase.

      2. Jesus él McNuggetCunt

        @Abu Ali al-Husayn ibn Abdillah ibn Sina I'd rather be a snowflake than a muslim

      3. Abu Ali al-Husayn ibn Abdillah ibn Sina
