Alert the Media

A TikTok celebrity hailing from Gen Z complains of being confused with millenials.

“Just because you’re so old you can’t remember the difference, doesn’t mean it’s OK to lump us altogether,” she said.

(Poppy Noor, “So Gen Z-ers hate millennials now? A handy guide to the generation wars,” theguardian.com, 6-22-20)

Wait. Did I say alert the media? These ARE the media!

The least not-OK thing about this forgettable puff of tiktokery in The Guardian is the shit-eating photograph used to illustrate it.

In the same issue, however, the newspaper redeems itself from Poppy’s folly with this photograph illustrating the prettiest word of the day: “noctilucent.”

And with this photograph illustrating the prettiest whimsy of the day: a concert for plants in Barcelona.
