Explaining Tumblr to old people is hard.
I asked my manager today at work if he just happened to know about Tumblr. He didn’t, so I tried to explain the best way I could so that he’d understand: “It’s like Facebook meets Twitter, microblogging a bunch of random stuff with memes and lots of gifs.”
He thinks about it and goes, “I want to microblog tumble now!” I mean, he’s not like 100 years old. He’s only like 10 years my senior and DJs on the weekends. He’s hip, just not in the loop.
I said, “No, no, it’s not that… like… ugh.”
"I can’t keep up with you kids these days." OK, bossman.
He then proceeds to show me the “Banned Skittles commercial”.
