Something Else

ts-somethingelseI’ve always heard people make fun of elderly women by referring to them as Grandma Moses. Turns out that she was a cool lady, and she’s a good example of someone finding real success pretty late in life. The woman’s an inspiration. Think of that next time you call someone Grandma Moses, and reconsider whether you want to pay them such a compliment. Brainstorm in advance for some other insulting names instead. I’d offer you some suggestions but I’m not some jerk who insults people just for being old.

  1. I always use ‘Methuselah’ when I’m mocking my elders.

  2. I have a relative that calls old people “Q-tips”. Cruel, and yet funny.

  3. In today’s society, isn’t calling them old bad enough?

    Dude, you’re too old for Botox. (which sounded like an insult until I remembered that Botox is basically embalming fluid, and therefore stuff they use on DEAD people, so…yeah.)

  4. My son is at the age where he feels the need to announce to me, loud enough for all to hear, that (s)he is old. Or has funny hair. Or smells bad. Or has funny feet. Or a big butt. You know, it runs the gamut of embarassing declarations.
