15 Grandparents Who Are Funnier Than I'll Ever Be

Grandparents are magical beings. They provide all the fun of mom and dad with absolutely none of the restrictions or consequences. They're also some of the most accidentally hilarious people on earth.

Below is a list of 15 grandparents who are far funnier now than I ever have or ever will be. These endearing family figureheads are deserving of our love, our care, and most importantly — our laughter.

It looks like he found a use for his e-reader after all!

"My dad likes reading so I got him a Kindle for is[sic] birthday," explained Redditor repliers_beware. "He's using it as a bookmark."

I myself would opt for a bookmark a little less clunky, but I agree that the satisfaction of physically turning a page far outweighs any technological convenience.

This grandpa has nearly mastered the fine art of printing.

The fact that a 97-year-old man even knows how to turn a computer on is impressive in and of itself. It took me 45 minutes to figure out how to turn off the Spanish subtitles on my TV just the other night.

Just call me Bob.

Starbucks is an intimidating and downright confusing place at the best of times. I swear every time I walk into the building I feel like I'm about to have an anxiety attack. It's understandable that this grandma would be confused, given the barista's wording of the question.

The psychological landmines of true love.

This man didn't make a mistake; far from it. This is a cold, calculated move to passive-aggressively take a mental potshot at your partner. Trust me — I do the same thing to my fiancee by leaving wet tea towels on top of the countertops.

Saying a friendly hello!

I'm honestly not sure what's more impressive: the fact that this Reddit user's father was able to fix his son's mower or that he was able to cut such perfectly shaped letters into the front lawn.

How do you fix a dimly lit tablet?

You get your grandfather to shine a flashlight over your father's shoulder — that's how! I shouldn't judge too harshly, this is precisely the kind of thing I'd expect to walk in on my own father doing.

That's one way to keep from bumping your head.

Redditor chl000e said that the sponge was her fiance's grandfather's makeshift solution to keep from bumping his head on the corner of the cabinets. I would never critique another man on his craftsmanship, but you don't have to be Bob Vila to know that device won't hold.

It's the thought that counts.

OK, I'm not going to lie — this is the cutest thing I've ever seen in my life. This is exactly the kind of confusing gift I'd expect to receive from my own grandmother were I ever to one day become an Uber driver.

When you're sitting at opposite sides of the same tree and don't even know it.

According to a post made by Reddit user bigred1987, "My grandparents were waiting for each other at the mall."

This is one of the sweetest and one of the most hilarious things I've seen in a very long time.

Family recipes forever lost to the fall of ancient times.

This grandmother wanted to cement her legacy to her family and pass down her cherished recipes to the next generation. Unfortunately, she put them on an outdated floppy disk —which made retrieving the recipes all but impossible.

Did you just fart?

That's the question this grandmother asked in shock after her son snapped a photo of her immediately after farting (while seated at the dinner table no less!). It's the face of shame and disappointment that every son knows all too well.

That's most definitely not a cereal clip.

Redditor ur1m had torn the house apart looking for their fisheye photo lens. Then one morning, as they went to pour a bowl of cereal, they noticed that the lens was being used as a makeshift food clip.

From top to bottom.

In my opinion, the only thing better than a good pun is a poor one. I'd also be lying if I said that I wasn't intrigued by the contents of "Bottom Drawer." The possibilities are endless — I have to know!

Every grandparent has their favorite grandchild.

Most are adept at hiding it but some wear it on their sleeve — as you can clearly see by their choice of gift wrap. All I know is that Lisa is going to have a lot of fodder for a therapist when she grows up.

When you put absolutely zero thought into your Christmas gifts.

So if I'm correct, I believe what we're looking at is a screenshot of a picture — of a picture. Clearly, this grandpa struggled when it came to figuring out how to work the power and home buttons simultaneously.
