AARP Is Showing More Signs Of Dementia Than Usual

As if turning 30 this November isn’t bad enough, AARP is apparently ready to indoctrinate me as an official old person a full two decades ahead of schedule:

First they suggest that I’m officially an old lady, and then they add insult to injury by mentioning a FREE INSULATED TRAVEL BAG that I’m not actually eligible for. Think of what I could have done with that bag! I could have traveled with all manner of hot or cold food items if I only had a FREE INSULATED TRAVEL BAG!

Then, their Twitter feed was hacked (maybe? conflicting reports, I’m not sure), and the senior citizen crew tweeted a shout out in memory of the Notorious B.I.G. :

This is my new favorite thing ever, because whoever handles their social media proceeded perfectly:

Some of the submissions were so funny that I was almost able to cheer up after missing my opportunity for a FREE INSULATED TRAVEL BAG (which everyone knows is the ultimate in senior swag)!

@samscottmpls: Biggie Biggie Biggie, can’t you see, you’re the coolest guy in the AARP.

@TimTurnstone: #AARPRapSongs Baby Got Back Problems

@danielle_rules: These Young Kids Just Don’t Understand #AARPRapSongs

@greatwahl: All About the Benefits, Baby #AARPRapSongs

@ChuckieMom1: Got 99 Problems but a Hip Ain’t One #AARPRapSongs

@benschwartzy: LA-Z-Boyz in the Hood #AARPRapSongs

@Hbe8411: Laid Back. With my mind on my pension & my pension on my mind. #AARPRapSongs

AARP included their favorites in their blog, and ended the post with:

And, Biggie? We really do miss you.

Some people have said this was intentionally done as a way to pander to the media/future senior citizens, and some said they were trying to capitalize on the memory of a dead celebrity. I think they might just have a new marketing strategy that could work out really well. And to anyone that thinks no actual senior citizen would appreciate a shout out to Biggie…you clearly haven’t met my mom.

  1. I’ve been surfing online more than 4 hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours.
    It’s pretty worth enough for me. In my opinion, if all web owners and bloggers
    made good content as you did, the net will be a lot more useful than
    ever before.

  2. I really love your blog.. Great colors & theme. Did you develop this web site
    yourself? Please reply back as I’m hoping to create my own blog and would love to find out where you got this from
    or what the theme is named. Appreciate it!

  3. Hey! I know this is kinda off topic but I’d figured I’d ask.
    Would you be interested in exchanging links or
    maybe guest authoring a blog post or vice-versa? My blog covers a
    lot of the same topics as yours and I think we could greatly benefit from each other.
    If you might be interested feel free to send me an e-mail.
    I look forward to hearing from you! Superb blog by the way!
