"Hey, what the--I can't get this thing off!!!"
Their ability to accentuate the finer points of one's toenail.

It was the next logical step after the fingers, ears, eyebrows, lips, tongue, navel, nipple, and naughty bits.

Goofy haircuts and rotten music completely fail to irritate the older generations anymore...
