Is this where I can post my confusion about the inclusion of "Crowdfunding" on the t-shirt?

Millenials made crowdfunding a thing. They didn't kill it.

Every item on that particular shirt is authentically pulled from the headlines. Headlines of very very stupid articles.

That's just... wow. It's like the author was required to fit their complaint into a "Millennials have killed X" article regardless of whether X was killed or millennials specifically had anything to do with it.

Probably. It's very rare that article writers make their own headlines.

Between Boomers killing the environment, jobs, education, and the economy, and Millennials killing home ownership, cable TV, franchises, and vacation time, have Xennials killed anything?

Nah. We rolled our eyes at the boomers and then pursed our lips and slitted our eyes at the millenials, and then we grabbed the popcorn.

If millenials killed paper airplanes, then why do they keep throwing them in my classrooms?

If millenials killed running, then why is my neighborhood overrun with the local HS track and long distance teams every afternoon? And why are they hogging all of treadmills at the local gym?

Baby boomers keep telling me they are

Even if they are or aren't, it doesn't explain how these things I wish were dead are still very much alive and kicking.

As I mentioned elsewhere, we get accused of with working with boomers or Millenials.

Talk about your middle kid syndrome.

I think we killed avocados too?

Or maybe we're sustaining them with our blood. I don't remember.

We have a symbiotic relationship with them. They're the only things we eat so, in turn, there the only things that must thrive.
