Way Too Many Thoughts About Yeet

I actually saw the whole Judge Judy yeet incident Steve referenced here. Steve was out in the kitchen and I started laughing like crazy. At the time, I thought this “yeet” thing was just something this dopey kid and her dopey friends said. I mean, said dopey kid just hucked somebody’s laptop because she heard a guy say “yeet!”

Then, on Facebook, this meme showed up.
Text reads. Boomers: yelling at millenials for toast. Millennials: yelling at Boomers for ruining the world. GenZ: snorts tide pod and yeets into traffic. Gen X: Picture of a man standing behind what looks like an office window looking through the blinds with a satisfied smile on his face.
And \I realized that this yeet thing was an actual thing! It was a word, a word with a definition! I know this because I asked our Google Home what it meant, and it told me! So maybe I’m still somewhat young…maybe?

For other people who are feeling old right now, here’s what yeet means.

Yeet is an exclamation of excitement, approval, surprise, or all-around energy, often as issued when doing a dance move or throwing something.

Something good happened at work and for a fleeting second I thought “Does this qualify as yeet?” immediately followed by “If I don’t know, probably not.” And now I’m back to feeling old again, precisely “Yeet?” years old.
