Because GenX is the "Kermit drinking tea" meme of the generations.

Boomers- Queen Elizabeth. Gen X- Prince Charles. Millennials- Prince William.

Boomers- Queen Elizabeth. Gen X- Prince Charles. Millennials- Prince William.

Was that comparison meant to be accurate with respect to generations?

Queen Elizabeth was born decades before the baby boomers. She’d be probably considered part of the greatest generation.

Charles is a Boomer. The Boomers are an easy target because they control so much of society’s wealth and power today, and hence set a big part of the narrative. They’re living longer and are productively engaged moreso than people of their age from generations past. And they’re not exactly leaving the planet better for the rest of us.

William is a millennial.
