The Silent generation, people born before 1945.
The Baby Boomers, people born between 1945 and 1961.
Generation X, people born between 1962 and 1976.
Generation Y, people born between 1977 and 1989.
Why do we call the last generation Y?
I did not know, but a caricaturist explains it eloquently below.
There were three generals, one Chinese, an Iraqi, and a French.
They were bragging about how good each of their armies were.
The Chinaman said, "My army would kill themselves for their country!"
Then he put a platoon in a little room and told them,
"When this feather hits the floor I want all of you to shoot yourselves!"
He then went outside the room and five seconds later there were numerous gunshots and everyone in the room was dead.
Next came the Turkish General and he said the same thing to one of his platoons.
About seven seconds later they heard gunshots and once again everyone was dead.
Finally came the French and he did the same to his platoon.
Several seconds past and there were no gunshots.
They decided to wait a little longer.
Then several more seconds past and still no gunshots.
Finally they went in and the whole French platoon was on the floor blowing
under the feather to keep it up.

Two drunks stumble out of a pub in Ireland at about 4:00 in the morning.
They stagger to the nearest lamppost and lean against it when along comes a policeman.
The first drunk pipes up, "Excuse me, ossifer, but I wonder could you tell
me if the last bus to Dublin has left yet."
To which the policeman replies
"Of course it has. It's 4:00 in the morning."
The second drunk then weighs in and says,
"Sorry, sir, but I wonder if the last bus to Galway has left yet."
The officer again replies "Of course it has. It's 4:00 in the morning."
The first drunk then starts up again and asks,
"Could you tell me please, ossifer, has the last bus to Cork gone yet."
The policeman is really irritated now so he shouts,
"It's 4am, all the bloody buses have gone!"
And with that the first drunk turns to his friend and says,
"Ok, Mick, we can cross the road now."
The Lumber Jack Song ...Eric Idle and Monty Python
There was once a king of a wealthy island nation.
The king could have built a large palace on the island.
However, tradition dictated that he live in a modest grass hut
like the island's other inhabitants.
Wanting to enjoy his wealth, he called in engineers.
They suggested that he build an elaborate throne.
They designed the throne, along with a series of ropes and levers to raise and lower it.
That way, he could lift it up to the top of his hut when not in use,
leaving more room for other activities.
The king was happy for a few months.
But soon the ropes frayed and the throne tumbled down and shattered.
This goes to prove that ...
... people who live in grass houses shouldn't stow thrones.
