Old Folks Home

The Whitest Kids U’Know have a song about visiting a nursing home. The guy’s really dreading it because he’s a horrible grandson and can’t imagine being in his grandma’s place. But that changes quickly, and he and his friends make nice with everyone in the home. That’s a joke, but it hits awfully close to home.

Where I live, young folks steal drugs from their grandparents all the time, which leaves a bunch of unemployed young drug addicts, the middle generation taking care of those kids’ children, and elderly people who don’t have the medicine they need. Four generations and entire communities are suffering. (via Tastefully Offensive)
