"I think today's music sucks. The Beatles were better than this crap."

"OK, boomer."


"OK, boomer."

Or you could just rib the person if they say something that sounds like something a boomer would say, such as:

"Have you ever seen this show on CBS?"

It is when someone old says something out of touch, and you dismiss them with "OK, Boomer".

Urban Dictionary to the rescue


OK Boomer

When a baby boomer says some dumb sheesh and you can't even begin to explain why he's wrong because that would be deconstructing decades of misinformationand ignorance so you just brush it off and say okay.


Boomer: Kids nowadays are so allergic back in my daywe just ate bees and wiped our asses with poison ivy.
Non-boomer: Ok boomer

Rick: *burp* mortyyyy when I was your age, television was called a book.
Morty: Ok boomer

"If you just stopped eating avocado toast you'd be able to afford housing and healthcare in no time."
"Ok boomer."

Boomer: there are so many more of those gays than when i was a kid. don’t you think it’s a bit much?
non-boomer: ok boomer

Which is ironic because 2019 has been nothing but a circle-jerk for nostalgic Boomers. Let’s go through the list:

The 50th Anniversary of the Inauguration of one of the most Controversial Presidents of the United States, that being Richard Nixon.

The 50th Anniversary of the Chappaquiddick incident, which resulted in the change in public perception of the Kennedy Family.

The 50th Anniversary of the Manson cult murders, with the most prominent of victims being renowned actress, Sharon Tate. Many attribute this as the official ‘death’ of the Golden Age of Hollywood, which spanned from the mid 1930s through the 1960s and was a cultural cornerstone to many Silents’ and Boomers’ childhoods.

The 50th Anniversary of the Apollo Moon Landings, which resulted in an end to the ‘Space Race’, and was a major turning point in the much larger ’Cold War’ between the capitalist/democratic values of the United States and the communist/authoritarian values of the Soviet Union, with the former now starting to have things lean in their favor geopolitically. And of course the major breakthroughs in science, technology, space exploration, and for humanity as a whole, notwithstanding. “That's one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind

And arguably the most personal to Boomers. The 50th Anniversary of Woodstock. Need I say more?

But of course, I know some Boomers would interject and say that I am missing a couple of things. Nonetheless, the mere fact that at the end of this current year, 2019, that after a long summer of Boomer nostalgic fantasies being shoved down our throats that you have this sudden backlash against the generation and the (current) values that they proclaim and represent, that shows how we have seemingly left an era of what I would call a ‘Baby Boomer consensus’.

Boomers, for how large their generation currently remains, are slowly but surely losing their grip in power, and they know this. Commemorating all of these cultural milestones of their generation is like a ‘Hail Mary’ in classic Boomer fashion. They’re scared sh!tless that they are no longer going to be the ‘star’ generation anymore. They see that people are no longer taking their bullcrap anymore. And ultimately, they are starting to realize that the system and its services that they had exacerbated (knowingly or unknowingly) is now creating a reckoning force against everything Boomers had incurred for themselves.

When you see Boomers complaining about the “#thesquad” in Congress and how they need to “wait their turn”, or the viral video of a Millennial politician in New Zealand shutting up a Boomer heckler by just simply saying “Ok Boomer”, Boomers (whether they want to admit this or not) know that their time in the sun is almost gone, and perhaps it’s fast approaching a lot more quickly then even young generations may give credit to. There’s already talk about a potential ‘youth bump’ in the 2020s & 2030s, as Millennials/Gen Z begin to start tying the knot, having kids, buying cars/houses, investing for the future, etc. etc. It’s time to buckle up, because it’s going to be a bumpy ride.
