Was ist?

    B forwarded this clip to me on Friday. It may offend some people who are defensive about getting old and self-righteous about how people treat senior citizens. But I say, by now, we should be able to laugh at ourselves.

     Indeed, for those of us who have children, I think we know that embarrassing or flummoxing our children is one of our last lines of defense. That being said, I am NOT sending this clip to my daughter, who needs no more ammunition in her arsenal of ways to make fun of her dad.

     This clip has been around for a little while, so maybe some of you have seen it, and if so, my apologies (although I'm sure it will make you laugh, even the second time around). There's an English version, but for some reason, the original version, in German, seems even funnier.

     The daughter is visiting her father, helping him in the kitchen. She says, "Tell me, Dad, how are you doing with the new iPad we gave you for your birthday?"

     The rest is self-explanatory . . .

I've seen it a few times and always laugh. It's great, Tom. Thanks for sharing it again. Well worth the time to smile and commiserate. Hahahaha! :-)

That's the first time I've seen the clip, and it DID make me laugh. Thanks for sharing it again.

I have seen it a few times, and I adore it! I dread the day my little old cell phone dies and I have to get one that knows more than I about everything.

After they pried my flip phone from my cold dead fingers I have adapted--somewhat.

Since I work in IT it is hard to get so far behind the times that I would think to use something that looks like an iPad for a cutting board. However, I have seen some high tech cutting boards that looked kinda of scary. And a high tech Japanese toilet looks about as complicated as the cockpit of a fighter jet to me.

Looks like this is the cutting edge of technology to me.
