Well, you say I'm twenty-something and I should be slacking
Twenty-something is not a nod to the show, “thirtysomething,” which aired from 1987 to 1991. The Beasties are commenting on the (then) newly described Generation X: twenty-somethings who were defined by a cynical- almost Nihilistic- lack of motivation, a generation of slackers.
Brad Pitt as Floyd in 1993’s True Romance. A slacker GOD with a water pipe/bong made from a plastic honey bear.
