This one just makes me sad.
okay, seriously, is everyone who overhears those conversations never going to say anything?she deserved a good ass whooping and maybe some private lessons in history, awwww, just give her private lessons on everything.
My parents said they liked Batman when they were my age. Jeeeez.
I would have schooled her right there.
Your mother should have drowned you at birth.
Tangential to the discussion... I was getting really into Chip Techno back in High School and my Dad brought out his Hot Butter LP and played PopCorn for me... then he quoted Ecclesiastes 1:9 at me. (But I was an awesome kid so I thought it was awesome that my Dad was into something I was into.)
This brat needs a good smack with a certain book series.. or an IMDB article. Either one.
I'm guessing that her mom is 30-40 years old? If that's the case, there's a good chance that her mom's mom was a fan of "The Wizard of Oz" when she saw the film during it's INITIAL run! This kid's a double douche!
The original story (1900) and first film adaptation (1910) are more than a century old, so... yeah, it's quite probable her grand grand was into Oz...
Uh...Richard J. Marcej, considering the popular film version with Judy Garland was made in 1939, her mother could have been 85 years old and liked it when she was that age.You want some perspective? When I was that age, I liked Star Wars. I'm 48 now.
I sincerely hope that this comment was written with intentional irony, because if not... :|
How is this not a dope or a crazy? Is her mother River Song or something?
Oh yeah, because her mom is such a poser... for liking a movie that is probably older than HER MOTHER too!
My Grandma had all the Oz books. Now those were sweet.
When this movie came out all I thought was "Great, just what the country needs more of L. Frank Baum's turn of the century political commentary. Wizard of Oz is sooo '00."
I know, right? I mean, I HATE how my parents always try to prove how much we've in common. I start listening to Pink Floyd, and they say they used to listen to Pink Floyd when they were my age. I read The Hobbit, and they say they read The Hobbit at my age. I go and drink my head off, and they say they used to do that when they were my age. Fuck it! We're NOTHING alike. They're just POSING, trying to get me to like them. Arrgghhhh!!I bet that soon they'll probably tell me how they watched this really obscure, indie, humor group I just discovered; Monty Python. Quit trying so hard!
See, these kinds of people don't even need to be yelled at. All you have to do is casually mention to the person that WoO has existed since 1900 and the person will probably feel like an idiot. Done deal.
Unfortunately kids these days think that knowing anything is stupid. They are proud of their ignorance.
This is why I don't want kids, no matter what you do they always hate you as soon as they hit puberty.I know, I've been there.>.>
I hope she has ten kids...just like her.The Mother's Curse. It works!
I found a very old Elizabethan post-it from my great, great, great, great, great, great, great, great, great, great, grandfather. It said, " Methinks this Shakespeare fellow is totes awesome and his writing iseth the tits." God, what a freaking poseur! Stop trying to identify with me! UGH!
