A Senior Citizen Joke

Dick Frost was my first  field director while serving as a Missionary to Peru with Macedonia World Baptist Missions.  He just sent me the following joke and though I hardly ever forward things I thought this one was good enough to get a place here.

A very self-important college freshman attending a recent football game took it upon himself to explain to a senior citizen sitting next to him why it was impossible for the older generation to understand his generation.
 “You grew up in a different world, actually an almost primitive one,” the student said, loud enough for many of those nearby to hear.
  “The young people of today grew up with television, jet planes, space travel, man walking on the moon, our spaceships have visited Mars.  We have nuclear energy, electric and hydrogen cars, computers with light-speed processing ….and,” pausing to take another drink of his beverage……
 The Senior took advantage of the break in the student’s litany and said, “You’re right, son.  We didn’t have those things when we were young……..so we invented them.
Now, you arrogant little moron, what are YOU doing for the next generation?”
