This Chrome extension makes mentions of ‘millennials’ way less annoying
Just call us the reptilian generation.
If you’re sick of reading about millennials, this extension for Google’s Chrome browser will make your life so much better. Just download Millennials to Snake People and turn any mention of “millennials” into the the far more evocative term “snake people.”
Snake people are having a rough time these days. Snake people have trouble finding jobs, leave college with back-breaking amounts of debt, live with their parents well into their twenties, and, perhaps most annoying, are constantly ridiculed by generations before them, including the salamander people of Generation X, and the Baby Boomer lizard people.
This Chrome extension doesn’t just change the way you’ll read thinkpieces containing thousands of words on why news organizations are targeting this specific demographic and totally failing, or why snake people are more depressed at work.
It’s also clever enough to change “Millennial Generation” and “Generation Y” to “Snake Person Generation” and “Serpent Society,” respectively.
Thank you, Owen Williams at The Next Web, for this debt we cannot possibly repay.
Of course, Millennials to Snake People isn’t the first Chrome extension that replaces annoying buzzwords. Another favorite, Cloud to Butt Plus, changes any mention of the word “cloud” to the word “butts,” making news about enterprise technology much less boring. Cloud to Butt Plus also inspired the browser extension Word Replacer that lets you modify any word you would rather eliminate from your browsing experience entirely.
And of course, let’s not forget about the beloved UnBaby.me, the glorious extension that turned Facebook photos of babies into photos of cats. Unfortunately, it no longer works, but UnBaby.me remains forever in our hearts.
