9 words that describe millennials perfectly


Millennials are a race of superterranean humans destined by fate (and ICQ) to be mocked eternally by 42-year olds. If you've never met a millennial, you need to get out more, but less importantly, here is a list of words that perfectly describes each and every millennial alive today (and maybe one or two horses alive yesterday).

  1. Technology
    • Even though technology was invented almost two decades before the first millennial was born, millennials have wholeheartedly embraced the idea. Because no other generation has ever thought of making use of the things that were just invented.
  2. Award-winning
    • I once saw a millennial win an award for Best Triple Jump. Back in my day, we didn't give kids awards for fake sports just so they could feel special! (We gave kids awards for fake sports just to be sarcastic.)
  3. Barn-burner
    • I once watched a millennial burn down my barn. To that millennial I'll be eternally grateful.
  4. Morose
    • This is a compound word that combines the words mo money and dextrose. This means that millennials have "mo money" and consequently "mo problems," and this makes them good at liking the 6th season of Dexter (ugh!).
  5. Malapropism
    • A malapropism is when you confuse a millennial for a regular human and treat them as a non-stereotypeable person.
  6. Scoopable
    • If there's a millennial, you can bet there's also a scoop in which they will easily fit.
  7. Shake'n'flake
    • Because each millennial is as unique as a snowflake and as absorbent as a cedar shake.
  8. Millennial
    • A millennial is a person who was born before a millennium started, thus are good at things that other people are also good at. For instance, us millennials who were born between 1019-1001 BCE are notoriously good at abandoning cuneiform, inventing chairs, and predicting when messiahs will be born. 
  9. Awesome sauce
    • Is that something that the youths still say? I wish I was awesome sauce. Frowny cheeseburger emoji.
