Humour: The “Y” Chromosome

People born before 1946 are called The Greatest Generation.

People born between 1946 and 1964 are called The Baby Boomers.

People born between 1965 and 1979 are called Generation X.

And people born between 1980 and 2010 are called Generation Y.

So why do we call the last group Generation Y?

Y (Why) should I get a job?

Y should I leave home and find my own place?

Y should I clean my room?

Y should I wash and iron my own clothes?

Y should I contribute money to the home?

Y should I help buy food?

Y should I get a car when I can borrow yours?

But perhaps this cartoonist explains it best of all:

Just thought you might like to know “Y”.
