WHAT'S HOT, WHAT'S NOT

Since its inception, the term "Generation X" has held a sort of negative connotation. Those of us in that generation have been stereotyped as "not taking anything seriously" or "making fun of other generations." One twentysomething magazine has taken the criticism to heart with a parody of the What's Hot _ What's Not lists. Here's an example from Might Magazine:
