TikTok Challenge Leads to Massive Spike in DogeCoin Value (an Event Designed to Melt Boomers' Brains)
The spyware social media platform has boosted the Internet joke-money to double its value in a matter of days.
If there's one thing people over the age of 60 hate more than everything they don't understand, it's when one of those things starts making other people money.
Which is why the latest financial news is perfectly designed to make Baby Boomers' grey matter turn to jelly and slide gently out their noses: A trending TikTok challenge has led to a massive spike in the sale of satirical cryptocurrency Dogecoin.
To explain why this story is like salt being poured directly on Boomers' brain-slugs, let's break down its components—from the perspective of someone who was born in the 80s and is therefore almost equally alienated from the whole mess..

If you think that sounds like the words of a man who is about to be deservedly choked out, you're partially right. But before 36-year-old Nicholas Arnold Schock got taken down by a group of brave bystanders in Nokomis Florida, he would do a lot more to deserve such aggressive treatment.
The viral video of the incident opens with a belligerent Schock, half-naked, shouting at the staff of Pop's Sunset Grille to "call Donald Trump, he's gonna come get me out of prison." It's not evident what sparked the confrontation—whether Schock was refusing to wear a mask in the popular open-air venue, or simply wanted to strip naked. Whatever the case, Schock was seemingly convinced that Donald Trump would have his back in the ordeal.
