Baby Boomers: Not Necessarily The News
Tootie Landry gives her humorous take on the Baby Boomer generation in this edition "Not Necessarily The News."
"Hey! I’m Tootie Landry and this is what I found out today!
Landon Jones coined the term “Baby Boomers” as someone born between 1943 and 1960. Seventy-six million Americans were born during that time and by force of numbers alone, we are re-defining “old age” in America. Thanks to Spanx, Botox, and treadmills this generation is changing the way we grow old! A baby boomer turns 50 every 7 seconds, so that means only one thing… sales of hair coloring has tripled!! Throw away the elastic, our favorite piece of clothing is spandex! And what do Boomers have to look forward to?! According to an article by AARP magazine, cruise ships will be turning into Luxury Assisted Living Facilities! Communities of wannabe musicians, actors, and writers already exist for our age group!
The U.S. Census Bureau states the spending power of Boomers is more than 2 trillion dollars! And manufactures are cashing in, in very “creative ways!” Need a walker? They’re now available in metallic colors! And thinner versions of walking canes that include a magnet and flashlight are being sold on infomercials. Certain pharmaceuticals for men, their drug sales have been nothing but straight up!
And finally… a recent survey proved that most baby boomers, including me, believe that the 3 stooges are still alive, they’re just posing as politicians in Washington! And I’m Tootie Landry and this is “Not Necessarily the News!”
