There are some things in this world that are just meant to go next to each other: peanut butter and jelly, tom and salsa, and perhaps the most important: Millennials and avocado toast. Or possibly Millennials and participation trophies, alternatively Millennials and entitlement. Either way, honoring National Avocado Day we definitely seemed to perform it would be appropriate to bring you most Millennial and avocado-related memes around the occasion!
Us Millennials kind of got the short end of the stick in life. We inherited a ruined economy, most of us are in a crap-load of student debt, and then to round it all out our Baby Boomer parents like to blame us for being “lazy” and “entitled.” Not an entirely fair accusation coming from a generation that makes us work for free in exchange for “exposure.”
Anyway, enjoy these memes that might make you feel a little more understood as a member of Generation Y.
The Twitter trend #MillennialAwardCategories plays off of those tried-and-true stereotypes about Millennials that we’re all very well aware of. You know, like our tendency to be triggered over absolutely everything and our affinity for participation trophies. As is such, Twitter began creating memes dedicated to making up hypothetical award categories that reinforce those amusing stereotypes that we all know and…love.
Many of us Millennials will think back to the ‘90s as the superior decade that can never be beat. We were the kids that got to experience ’90s boy bands, Tamagotchis, and the rise of the internet. However, we don’t always stop and think about all the annoying sh*t that we had to deal with on a regular basis, much of it technology-related. These memes and pics highlight those struggles that we’ll never have to deal with again! (And thank God for that.)
Generation Y gets a lot of sh*t constantly for supposedly being lazy, entitled and easily offended. Are these things actually true? The answer to that is of course subjective, but if you’re a Millennial then you’ll know that stereotypes about us tend to be a bit (or a lot) overplayed, and these tweets make light of that.
Behold, hipsters in their natural habitat! Mating season is upon us which means that the hipster must reach peak irony levels in order to attract a mate. This objective can be achieved by completing totally mundane tasks with the most gratuitous of gestures, or by offering potential suitors a slice of free-range vegan avocado toast. Let’s scroll down to examine the specimens more closely.
Regardless of what you think of the Millennial generation, we can all probably agree that the stereotypes surrounding them are pretty damn hilarious. These tweets poke fun at Generation Y’s need for safe spaces, their obsession with avocado toast, and their addiction to technology. Now if only they’d quit demanding affordable healthcare – the horror!
A quick warning: if you’re a Millennial then scrolling through the following will probably make you feel really old and sad. Believe it or not, kids today (AKA Generation Z) will never understand the struggles of dial-up internet, or fangirling the crap over the Backstreet Boys. If you’re not feeling old yet, then don’t worry because it’s only a matter of time!
