And While You're at it, Get off our Damn Lawns!

'Elderly' no longer acceptable word for older people - Telegraph: "Words to describe elderly people such as 'codger', 'fogey' and even 'elderly' itself should be banned from media reporting, ageism campaigners are urging."

Well then what the hell do we call you?

Pre-dead?
Post-young?
Age-enhanced?
Ancestrally superior?
Overly seasoned?
Knockers on the doors of death?

Throw us middle-agers a bone here.
