2005 – Year in Review (Comedy)

Well 2005 is about to expire. Over the course of this year, we have covered many topics on internet marketing in Calgary, advertising and business success stories.

To all my clients at KS2 Solutions Inc., the business relationships I formed in 2005, friends and family, I wish you a festive holiday season and a prosperous New Year.

Now I want to share a good laugh with you. I received this in my email box and it made me laugh as well as think about the great year 2005 was.

Just in case you weren’t feeling too old today, this ! will certainly change things.. Each year the staff at Beloit College in Wisconsin puts together a list to try to give the faculty a sense of the mindset of this year’s incoming freshmen.

Here’s this year’s list:

The people who are starting college this fall across the nation were born in 1987.

They are too young to remember the space shuttle blowing up.

Their lifetime has always included AIDS.

Bottle caps have always been screw off and plastic.

The CD was introduced the year they were born.

They have always had an answering machine.

They have always had cable.

They cannot fathom not having a remote control.

Jay Leno has always been on the Tonight! Show.

Popcorn has always been cooked in the microwave.

They never took a swim and thought about Jaws.

They can’t imagine what hard contact lenses are.

They don’t know who Mork was or where he was from.

They never heard: “Where’s the Beef?”, “I’d walk! a mile for a Camel”, or “de plane, Boss, de plane”.

They do not care who shot J. R. and have no idea who J. R. even is.

McDonald’s never came in Styrofoam containers.

They don’t have a clue how to use a typewriter.
