When I was a kid, adults used to bore me to tears with their tedious diatribes about how hard things were. When they were growing up; what with walking twenty-five miles to school every morning.... Uphill.... Barefoot.... BOTH Ways.... Yadda, Yadda, Yadda....
And I remember promising myself that when I grew up, there was no way in hell I was going to lay a brunch of crap like that on my kids about how hard I had it and how easy they've got it! But now that I'm over the ripe old age of over thirty, I can't help but look around and notice the youth of today. You've got it so easy! I mean, compared to my childhood, you live in a damn Utopia!
And I hate to say it, but you kids today, you don't know how good you've got it!
I mean, when I was a kid we didn't have the Internet. If we wanted to know something, we had to go to the damn library and look it up ourselves, in the card catalog!!
There was no email!! We had to actually write somebody a letter - with a pen! Then you had to walk all the way across the street and put it in the mailbox, and it would take like a week to get there! Stamps were 10 cents!
Child Protective Services didn't care if our parents beat us. As a matter of fact, the parents of all my friends also had permission to kick our ass! Nowhere was safe!
There were no MP3's or Napsters or iTunes! If you wanted to steal music, you had to hitchhike to the record store and shoplift it yourself! Or you had to wait around all day to tape it off the radio, and the DJ would usually talk over the beginning and @#*% it all up! There were no CD players! We had tape decks in our car. We'd play our favorite tape and "eject" it when finished, and then the tape would come undone rendering it useless. Cause, hey, that's how we rolled, Baby! Dig?
We didn't have fancy crap like Call Waiting! If you were on the phone and somebody else called, they got a busy signal, that's it! There weren't any freakin' cell phones either. If you left the house, you just didn't make a damn call or receive one. You actually had to be out of touch with your "friends". OH MY GOD!!! Think of the horror... not being in touch with someone 24/7!!! And then there's TEXTING. Yeah, Right. Please! You kids have no idea how annoying you are. And we didin't have fancy Caller ID either! When the phone rang, you had no idea who it was! It could be your school, your parents, your boss, your bookie, your drug dealer, the collection agent... you just didn't know!!! You had to pick it up and take your chances, mister!
We didin't have any fancy Playstation or Xbox video games with high-resolution 3-D graphics! We had the Atari 2600! With games like 'Space Invaders' and 'Asteroids'. Your screen guy was a little square! You actually had to use your imagination!!! And there were no multiple levels or screens, it was just one screen... FOREVER! And you could never win. The game just kept getting harder and harder and faster and faster until you died! Just like LIFE!
You had to use a little book called a TV Guide to find out what was on! You were screwed when it came to channel surfing! You had to get off your ass and walk over to the TV to change the channel!!! NO REMOTES!!! Oh, no, what's the world coming to?!?! There was no Cartoon Network either! You could only get cartoons on Saturday Morning! Do you hear what I'm saying? We had to wait ALL WEEK for cartoons, you spoiled little rat-finks!
And we didn't have microwaves. If we wanted to heat something up, we had to use the stove! Imagine That! And our parents told us to stay outside and play... all day long. Oh, no, no electronics to soothe and comfort. And if you came back inside... you were doing chores! And car seats - oh, please! Mom threw you in the back seat and you hung on. If you were luckily, you got the "safety arm" across the chest at the last moment if she had to stop suddenly, and if your head hit the dashboard, well that was your fault for calling "shot gun" in the first place! See! That's exactly what I'm talking about! You kids today have got it too easy. You're spoiled rotten! You guys wouldn't have lasted five minutes back in 1980 or any time before!

I think Anti Monkey Butt Powder is the most hysterical product I have ever come across or heard of before. The name simply makes me laugh and I think it's a great product that will make people laugh. Anti Monkey Butt Powder is for everyone. The man, the lady and even for the baby.
This is a perfect product for the active guy in your life! Whether he takes part in physical hobbies or has a job that runs him around! Anti Monkey Butt Powder, invented by motocross riders, is designed to prevent and reduced friction and irritation that can result from excess sweat. That excessive sweat that can cause irritation of the buttocks and inner thighs, also known as "Monkey Butt". Unlike other powders, Anti Monkey Butt Powder has calamine and talc which gives it a cooling sensation instead of the burning that you might get from other powder products.
Anti Monkey Butt also has a new lady friend - Lady Anti Monkey Butt Powder which makes a great product for women too. Lady Anti Monkey Butt Powder delivers the same great results, but is made with calamine and cornstarch for a more silky texture. Perfect for frictional discomfort that women often experience when using exercise equipment, running, driving, cycling, bra straps/cleavage perspiration or just walking for ENDLESS hours in the mall while shopping!
