Mailvox: changing the lyrics

Replace the word 'pillow' with the word 'murder'.

Hush now, hush now, the murder comes....

See, that doesn't work. It creates an image of a large group of crows landing on the Boomer for some inexplicable reason rather than one of him being gently smothered by a foreigner in his nursing home.

Why cant you mock the boomer without inciting murder?

But I most certainly can! And have! What part of "Proud to be a Boomer" incited murder?

I'm proud to be a Boomer

'Cos this world was made for me

And The Beatles were the greatest band in human history.

But I don't recall the Boomers being any happier about that one. Just can't please some people, I guess.

Resettlement, SDL. We need to talk about the resettlement of the Boomers in the Ost.

Now you're just playing dumb, Vox.

You wrote a scene in a fantasy tome turned comic book about crows anticipating a feast of carrion. We know what the crows want.

Speaking of which, don't Boomers have a lot in common with goblins?

Yeah that's a terrible lyrical edit. The soft opening and close of "pillow", with soft lilt of the double-l at dead center is a perfect complement to the double-"hush."

Try to ruin the song by replacing that with "murder?" Why not "herpderp" instead? It makes more sense, both sonically and lyrically.

Tin ear! Tin ear! Don't sing, you Boomers!
Shut up! Lay back! Your music always sucked.

"Invoking", not "inciting."

Boomers, you have to think in terms of trade and commerce. You are depreciating human resources that are rapidly becoming more liability than asset. The freely traded retirement assistance personnel with no blood or cultural relationship to you are sure to run a CBA against not changing your bedpan and rightsize your temporal position to encourage you to seek new opportunities in the world to come.

We appreciate L'Quandishandra and Shrivapataguptaram's cost saving initiatives, and we encourage you to be patient in this transitionary period.

"Ask not for whom the murder fluffs" makes no sense and sounds retarded. Then again, that puts it on par with what Boomers call "music"

"inciting murder"

Reminding you of the logical consequences of your actions is not inciting murder, boomer, any more than telling you that jumping off a cliff is going to result in a pretty nasty deceleration at the bottom.

"Tikkan Olam, and Oy Vey!" the Boomer screeched, as he reverse-mortgaged his ancestral home (depriving his entitled and ungrateful children of his ancestral home [that'll show them!]), while writing in his will that any excess monies be sent to Israel, "It's another Pillowcaust! Why do they persecute us so?"

You've got me thinking. Life expectancies have increased dramatically. Previous generations died earlier and passed on wealth to kids in adult prime.

I'm a genXer. When my parents die, I will inherit some wealth but I don't need it anymore. I finally got my head above water.

My kids however are struggling living paycheck to paycheck. It would be best for the boomers rewrite the wills and skip a generation. Get the wealth back to the younger adults starting families (or afraid to start a family)

As if genx and everyone else wouldn't have been in like a robber's dog if the peace bought by their fathers' blood had been bequeathed to them rather than their parents.

VII is the root - a masonic conspiracy against the Church. An opportunity for witness, repentance, grace and salvation if you know how to play the hand.

Sometimes the labourers who came later get less rather than more. Whatever. God would never allow any mortal to be born into a reality or age that did not have everything that particular soul needed to find its way to Heaven, if it wants to.

Blogger GAHCindy July 22, 2021 6:29 PM  

Just as there's a difference between judging others and warning them that there will be Judgement, there is a difference between inciting murder and observing that a death warrant has been signed, in this case by the Boomer himself. The Pillow cometh.

I hear the networks will reprise Tommy and Dicky Smothers’ comedy duo, once a boomtard favorite and soon-to-be hit with the younger generations. José and Pahjeet will play the new Smothers Brothers with the revamped show featuring pillows and the comfort they can bring, particularly in the final aspect of life. Check out the series The Smothering Othering coming this Fall, boomers, where you can star big. You know you want to star, and the rest of us will help the cause while enjoying the entertainment!

"You wrote a scene in a fantasy tome turned comic book about crows anticipating a feast of carrion. We know what the crows want."

In Irish mythology the death goddess Morrígan often appears as a crow to foreshadow someone's death. One of the trio of death goddess's name is Babd, literally crow.

@14: I've thought about this before. In previous times were people expected to inherit their parents' house? Did the wealth ever get transferred explicitly or was it more like welp dad died guess I'm in charge now? I don't know how things should work now but I'm reminded of a news story of a 40 year old korean guy wheeling his aged 90 year old dad into a board meeting apparently so he could affirm him being the new CEO or something. I guess his sole hope in life was waiting for that to happen.

"Did the wealth ever get transferred explicitly or was it more like welp dad died guess I'm in charge now?"


It was simply considered the right thing to do. A concept of "family wealth" which followed a lifetime in sharing the wealth with the family.

Many times I met boomers who had it all, birthright bonanza steady job out of school, upper management 20 years later, house and yard full or toys, the whole thing.
All while the kids were renting a room working nowhere jobs and broke.
And when the subject comes up, the boomers speak of entitlement and ungrateful.
Now maybe I could understand that some of them could be under the delusion that there are still plenty of bootstraps to go around. But they didn't even bother to foster an environment where some kid at 18 just put of the house could even have a bootstrap to pull up on.

They created a hostile low trust society of nepotism and tribalism, and then at the same time, did not think "hey family wealth and assets in such a hostile environment are way more important now".
So after ensuring their kids won't earn enough to own a house, after ensuring houses will be too scarce and expensive, their kids won't even get the house.
And that's all the reason to abandon them to the mercy of Shakasha and Torquisha from Ivory Coast. The bill for a lifetime of sin must be paid sometime, in this world or the next.

Not inexplicable....you subconsciously remember that a group of crows is called a MURDER.

He seems to think we are the threat. We support the rule of law.

The tribal he imported to serve him in his old age is the threat. Immigrate to America, disarm the boomer via red flag laws, take out an unauthorized life insurance policy, grab a pillow, and the tribal is now rich.

I live in a popular boomer holiday destination and used to be a waiter at a popular tourist restaurant. THERE IS NO PLEASING A BOOMER. Just forget about trying. Spend your energy on the local customers instead and warn your manager ahead of time that "there are old American tourists at table 12, pucker up".

Blogger Pathfinderlight July 23, 2021 7:41 AM  

Is it really murder when they're old, half-dead and you define them as not-people? Morally, this is just like defining a pre-born baby as a not-person just because it's inconvenient for mommy to birth her.

Boomers, you've had since 1973 to illegalize baby murder. You've even been warned about the day of the pillow by your small minority of pro-lifers. Why are you complaining about it now? Are you really incapable of thinking ahead?

I'm a boomer and reading this tripe confirms the thoughts that Gen X'er & Millennials believing they have a right to my lifetime of work solely based on birth and the idea it should be passed on to them is utterly ridiculous. It implies you have a right to it when your rights to my wealth ended at the age of 18 or 21. So go and piss off now, I have new toys to buy with my wealth.
