Yes it could be this. But it could also be because living with someone for a long time is hard. I mean, I wonder if we could replace a spouse with a long term housemate in the average boomer comic, and it would describe the same things but to a different audience. Sharing a home space with other humans is hard

should have thought of that before you decided to love with someone long-term

This is an AI-generated comic strip about millennials killing things

Beneath it there's a link to the Boomer-written article that spawned it

yesterday I said baseball tickets were too expensive and it's logical to just buy MLB.TV and watch every game from home for the price of 2 mediocre tickets, if you're into that

Boomers had a field day with this comment. "Millenials just want to cry!". "You can afford it, stop whining!"

I was like OK boomer, you can't claim millenials are fiscally irresponsible while deriding them for not wasting money on exorbitantly priced dumb shit. Like those two beliefs are incompatible. You have to pick one. And that is the heart of boomerism: a refusal to acknowledge the systemic ways our society constrains us all economically. Instead they blame individuals and easy to identify cultural trends like cell phones and avocados. While spending $240 per month on Comcast cable and a land line. And baseball tickets with $12 Miller Lites. And even when we don't partake in this dumb shit it's still our fault that cost of living has increased disproportionately to wages.

Boomers, man.

Corporate capitalism killed Sears. I wish millenials had the organization to cohesively band together and selectively kill malignant aspects of society. I used to work at fucking Sears. The writing was on the wall 30 years ago. Ask Mitt Romney about extracting every possible drop of value from a brand before tossing it in the headline graveyard of things millenials killed. Applebee's, you're next! I'd kill you if I could, but you guys already know what you're doing!

Anyway we're putatively kicking boomers, so I though I'd chime in while I take a shit at work like a good lazy millennial. Hope that's OK.

Just like a millennial to tell me i have to pick various beliefs while discarding others that are logically incompatible! You uppity fucken millennials think ya got the whole world figured out! Well guess what! You’re one sperm droplet away from having been wiped off your mamas taint area! So there! I was here when you were just hanging out in the darkness inside my ballsack! Try that on for size ya big smarty college boys/girls!

References to the maternal taint was not quite what I expected from the Mormon doom cult patriarch.

I don't know who created Pokémon Go, but I want to figure out how to get them to have Pokémon Go to the polls!

He’s a complicated man

He probably would have said “bush area” though, now that i think real hard on it

Probably i was still thinking of the mr show sketch when i posted earlier

You sure did approach it with the velveteen touch of a dandy fop.
