OK Boomer: The Gift That Keeps Giving

The questionable punctuation in "OK Boomer" merch seems to beg we reclaim the phrase

We had our say about the emotional journey that the ever-popular meme OK Boomer took us on a couple of weeks ago. I thought this would fade away as quickly as the latest Kardashian dust-up but, alas, this one is proving sticky. We had some very fun interaction on our Facebook Group, haters and lovers alike.

But what I really enjoyed was AGEIST profile Jane Wald’s Twitter feed on the subject. You see, Jane is an attorney, and people in her line of work get very literal about language and punctuation, as they should. So should it be “OK, Boomer” or “OK Boomer,” or maybe OK Bomber?

On and on. If you would like to see the entire thread, here you go. Gotta love a smart Twitter feed. Go, Jane.
