Brief Rant: The Disney Afternoon is What's Wrong with My Generation

So as a free member of D23, I was perusing their newsletter recently and came across a link to audio of the Disney Afternoon theme song.  The Disney Afternoon aired from 1990 to 1997 - so basically when people my age were in elementary school and middle school.  

A flood of memories immediately rushed to mind.  What a great song!  But, have you heard the lyrics lately?  Here is the chorus:

"There's so much to do
Getting ready just for you
Everybody's busy
Bringing you a Disney afternoon (hey!)
Can't you feel the buzz
Well, you're gonna' feel the buzz because
Everybody's busy
Just a little dizzy
Bringing you a Disney afternoon."

Getting ready just for ME!  Everyone is working to bring ME a fun time?  My my, I must be the center of the universe after all!  I don't have to do anything but sit here and expect my 
delightful entertainment to begin!  This is an excellent message for an 8 year old.  

No wonder Millenials are viewed as lazy and entitled.  


Guys, you DO know that I'm not blaming Disney or the song for the problems of the Millenials right?  Just want to make that clear.  LOL
