Of Hippies and Pop Culture

February 21, 2007

A good old hippie friend of mine told me a story from around the summer of ’69:

He and his friends had sat down, cross-legged on his neighbour’s lawn, to enjoy some conversation and catch a few rays.

Suddenly, the neighbour came running out, armed with his garden hose. “Get off my lawn you pot smoking hippies” he screamed. “Damn Pepsi generation” he added, as he showered them with a spray of cold water.

Of course, they just sat there, flipped him the peace sign and soaked it all in….man.
