79 is the new 19.

According to The Tampa Bay Tribune a 79 year-old grandmother was arrested for possession of crack cocaine this week. In a search of her house not only did they find enough crack that she's charged with intent to distribute but a wealth of shotgun shells. In case granny had to pop a cap in someone's ass for walking on her lawn?

But don't worry, she knows the drill. This was her 13th arrest.

What ever happened to grandmothers just having a dish of candy?


  1. No kidding. And it was always that horrible kind -- nut goodies or ribbon candy -- the way the universe was meant to be.

    On the other hand, can you imagine the holiday gifts that you'd get from someone with crack money?

  2. My Pop used to come to the house with coins in his pocket and we'd be overjoyed to get a couple of quarters each.

    Crack Granny would probably come by with bars of gold. Or maybe dentures of gold.
