Happy National Grandparents Day!

Established in 1978 by President Jimmy Carter, Grandparents Day is a day when we honor the contributions of the wonderful people who raised the people who raised us. Not everyone has the same relationship with their grandparents. Maybe they spoiled you, maybe they mentored you, or maybe they brought you up altogether.

Whatever they taught you, wherever they may have guided you, however much you wish to someday be as awesome as they are, take the time to look at these photos and realize you probably never will be. In fact, they're probably flipping you off and throwing back shots of whiskey as you read this.

Skating to the party.

Sometimes it doesn't take much to be awesome.


Just be up for playing some video games.

Or do this.

But you can always go the full distance and take a shot with a frat.


Smoking weed with her is legal in a few states now.

Sometimes it's just a tattoo & whiskey day.


Join her on a surfin' safari.
