white picket fence, 2.x children

The inflation of the American dream:
“I don’t want kids. I don’t want 2.1 children and a white picket fence and a mini-van. I like my life how it is. Still…”
“But then they managed to do it anyway, and they got married in a big, gay church and then they all lived happily ever after in a house with a white picket fence, a minivan, and 2.2 children…god please just let it end now please please please… WHY???”
“Asian Man: You will grow up to have 2.3 children, live behind a white picket fence and drive two domestic cars that get bad gas mileage. Twinkie Boy: Yes. I will.”
“We usually remember the 50s as the movies present it, America

One thought on “white picket fence, 2.x children”

  1. Way cool work!
    It’s funny how the cliche adopters can’t decide on a number. I always remembered it as 2.5 kids, but times have changed since that was the average. White people aren’t reproducing as much as before, and it’s quite possible it’s going to be 1.2 Kids, and the white picket fence.
    Lies, Damned Lies, and inflated statistics…
