People Have Finally Worked Out What Defines “Boomer Culture” And It’s Very Funny
"Boomer culture is calling sushi exotic."
As we approach the end of the week, not much has changed. Australia’s weather remains bonkers, Allen’s continue to not bring back the blue snake, and boomers are still getting mad that we’re calling them boomers. And that’s boomer culture!

For example, a lot of boomer culture revolves around phones and a boomers inability to use one silently or effectively.
