Enough already! Enough of these ridiculous "40 Under 40" thingamajigs every organization with commerce in its name feels obliged to give out these days. It smacks of rank ageism, doncha think? Hello, anybody home? Speak louder, you say? IT'S AGEISM, I TELL YA!
Not that I ever should've been under consideration, but when I was in my 30s, it was "30 Under 30," then in my 40s, it was "40 Under 40," and since then I haven't noticed any "50 Under 50" even or "60 Under 60."
So the only equitable way to resolve this inequity is to reverse the trend -- NO! Check that. Turn it on its cradle-capped head and show them young whippersnappers who's boss! We may be old, but we ain't turned to dust just yet, so watch our dust, and be sure not to choke on it.
So I'm announcing "60 Over 60." If those wet-behind-the-ears pups want to throw down the gauntlet, we're ready to throw up our challenge, as well as whatever didn't agree with us after we raided the fridge at 11:55 p.m.
