When I look at all these dang teens and their dang TikToks, it really gets me thinking.

A lot of what’s getting put out there on these attention-hungry social platforms is innovative and funny and great. But way more of it is just dumb cringe. And everybody is doing it. It may well never go away. And it’s going to age like milk.

Which brings me to my next thought – will Gen Z end up in a torrent of absolute humiliation, or will there essentially be no more embarrassment thanks to a sort of mutually assured social destruction? It will be interesting to see.

In any case, current teens might just end up embarrassed in the future by these absolute roasts their parents dished out on Twitter.
