26 Hilarious Times Baby Boomers Tried to Use the Internet and Failed

By Pippa Raga

Some things are amazing together. Peanut butter and jelly. Movies and snacks. Convertibles and sunglasses. But other combinations should definitely be avoided at all costs. Like, Cheetos and milk, or peanuts and Coke, or baby boomers and social media.

I can't count on two hands the number of times I've tried to pry the phone out of my mother's hands after she posts a private message to her whole Facebook wall, or chain-mail circulates a meme to my entire extended family on Whatsapp.

But it seems I'm not the only one who finds grownups using the internet, or at least attempting to use the internet, a hilarious sport. 

Below, 26 times baby boomers really tried to make their mark online.
