*It was fun being a baby boomer..till now.

6. Johnny Nash - I Can't See Clearly Now

7. Paul Simon - Fifty Ways to Lose Your Liver

8. Commodores - once, Twice, Three Times to the Bathroom

9. Marvin Gaye - I Heard it Through the Grape Nuts

10. Procol Harem - A Whiter Shade of Hair

11. Leo Sayer - You Make Me Feel Like Napping

12. The Temptations - Papa's Got a brand new Kidney Stone

13. Abba - Denture Queen

You need to be a certain age for all of them to make sense. Here's another one that boomers can relate to.
How can you tell it's 2005 instead of 1955?
When you walk into a store you can ask for a condom in a loud voice but need to whisper when you ask for cigarettes.

I'm so senile, when I wrote a check last week (which I rarely do anymore), I was filling in the date, and started to write 19. . . and then couldn't figure out why I was so stumped with what came after that!! :shock: I looked at the young girl clerk and quickly tore it up, saying I had put in the wrong amount. :o

unfortunately in my case the opposite is true. the mashed potatoes are feeding my newly formed man boobs and soft flabby body.
