In my day, we couldn't afford shoes, so we went barefoot. In the winter we had to wrap our feet with barbed wire for traction. And we had to WALK to school, in the ice and snow, two miles uphill, both ways, dadgummit!

In my day, we didn't have hand held calculators. We had to do addition on our fingers. To subtract, we had to have some fingers amputated.

In my day, we didn't get that disembodied, slightly ticked off voice saying 'Doors closing.' We got on the train, the doors closed, and if your hand was sticking out, it scraped along the tunnel all the damn way to the next station and it was a bloody stump at the end.

In my day, we didn't have virtual reality. If a one eyed razorback barbarian warrior was chasing you with an axe, you just had to hope you could outrun him.

In my day back in the ‘70s we didn't have the space shuttle to get all excited about. We had to settle for men walking on the crummy moon.

In my day, we didn't have days. There was only "time for work," "time to pray" and "time for sleep." The sheriff would go around and tell everyone when to change.

When I was your age, we didn't have fake doggie do. We only had real doggie do, and no one thought it was a damn bit funny.

In the old days, nobody asked you to sign petitions. The sheriff just came to your house and told you YOU was part of a posse.

Back in my day, "60 Minutes" wasn't just a bunch of gray haired, liberal 80 year old guys. It was a bunch of gray haired liberal 60 year old guys.

In my day, attitudes were different. For example, women didn't like sex. (at least, that is what they told me!)

In my day, we didn't have fancy health food restaurants. Every day we ate lots of easily recognizable animal parts, along with potatoes drenched in melted fat from those animals. And we're all as strong as ... ... AGGRRGH! ... (( THUD ))
