My little sister was telling me about how there’s this old joke book in her classroom and sometimes during breaks or free reading she and some other kids will sit around and read jokes to each other.
So one time one of them read a joke that went “How do you know if your dad is a space alien? He knows how to program the VCR”
And my little sister was the only one who laughed, the rest of the kids were like ??? So she explained that VCRs were old machines like DVD players and so it’s funny because it’s so old it’s hard to figure out
So I explained that back in the day, there was a whole thing about how when VCRs were new (and pretty much through their whole use), they were notoriously hard to program and people always made jokes about how difficult they were to program.
It’s just funny to me that the joke still works either way. It used to be “This newfangled technology is so hard to figure out!” and now it’s “This old-fashioned technology is so hard to figure out!”
