Do your parents not understand technology? Do they ask you stupid questions? Do they send you absurd text messages? Do they use words like "MyFace,""SpaceBook,"or "The World Wide Web?"
And thank God we'll never be as dumb as they are!

I just walked into my mom's office as she tried to drag a picture from her desktop onto her facebook page. I asked her what she was doing and she replied, "I want to change my profile picture."
My mom put the same song on a playlist 15 times so it would keep repeating.

I told my mother to stop using Internet Explorer if she was so worried about identity theft and the like and to use a different internet browser and she said, "We use Google."

My friend's status on Facebook said that he was coming home from Afghanistan. One of his friend's mothers commented "like" instead of pushing the like button.

My dad bought a year's subscription to megavideo premium.
I was showing my mom how to use her new gmail account when she asked me what I use for email: "intube or facemail?"
My dad called me in to his office because his computer "had a virus." My 80 year old grandfather had sent him an email in wingdings. When I changed the font the email read: "Just wanted to see if you were smart enough to figure this out. Love Dad."
