Jump up, Bub!


Generational gap between my generation and my kids’ generation summed up in one word: Napoleon.

My generation hears Napoleon, we think Bonaparte. Theirs thinks Dynamite. 

My generation hears the term Napoleon Complex, we start singing the old Randy Newman song, “Short people, got no reason …” Their generation pictures someone who is obsessed with ligers. 

If you’re of my generation, you just said, “What the hell is a liger?”

Many of my generation have no idea who Napoleon Dynamite is. What’s really sad? Many of my kids’ generation have no idea who Napoleon Bonaparte is.

I am a good dad. All four of my kids know both Napoleons.
