As an old person, I am usually not down with the youths of today, so I would have been equally flummoxed by the text message Twitter user Satomaa sent her dad. You probably know this already, but apparently “let’s get this bread” is a phrase akin to “let’s go to work,” “let’s go make some money,” and as I like to imagine it, “let’s go attack the day.” But when Satomaa texted that message to her dad, he took it literally:

and then so did her mom:

which caused other people to send their “let’s get this bread” responses from their own parents:

I don’t know why I find this so hilarious, but apparently I’m not alone as Satomaa has now gone so viral, she’s promoting artwork via her Twitter feed. Maybe I’m just viewing my not-too-distant future.

Hang in there, old people! Everything becomes a meme eventually, and sooner or later we’ll figure it all out. [Gwen Ihnat]

Taco cat is not just the greatest food palindrome, but taco cat is about to be a hit on the ski slopes of Steamboat Springs, Colorado this winter. There, Steamboat Ski Resort has rigged up a snowcat, which I can only describe as a military tank crossed with a snowmobile, to serve tacos to hungry skiers and snowboarders. It’s named, appropriately, Taco Beast. [Kate Bernot]

The use of “bread” to mean “money” is way older than the Boomers... like, 18th-Century old. You crazy kids today, trying to sound old-fashioned! ;)

Maybe the phrase would make more sense if you took out the “this”? Like, whose bread are we tawkin? When you say “this”, someone’s expecting something specific, like Mom who said that the picture didn’t come through.
