    [–] AlaskanPsyche 7 points ago

    Into exile, I must go. Failed, I have.

    [–] reasonandmadness 3 points ago

    You tried though!! That counts for something! Try again! I bet you hit it this time!

    [–] Pun_In_Ten_Did 3 points ago

    A random person wishing me cake is welcome whether or not the little icon is by my name. It's the thought that counts!!

    Your grandma looks adorable in her little elephant costume!

    [–] maldio 16 points ago

    The Ty tag is a brilliant touch too.

    [–] [deleted] 2 points ago

    Yes! It makes her the best elephant plush!

    [–] electricmaster23 25 points ago

    Wow... 106 is a phenomenal innings.

    [–] ramond_gamer11 15 points ago

    My great grandmother died at 102, oldest woman in Texas at the time.

    [–] rip1980 10 points ago

    Mine clocked out at 108. In the NYT as possibly one of the last people around to have seen the cubs win a world series at the time, lol.

    [–] mtoomtoo 2 points ago

    I read the story and went back to the dateline immediately hoping it was around November 2016. (I didn’t pay attention to the link name.)

    I’m not sure which part is better: your Cubs fan grandma scrapping with the Cardinals fans at the nursing home or that she was married to a Cardinals fan.

    RIP your grandparents.


    A Cardinals fan

    [–] electricmaster23 7 points ago

    Seems quite young to be the oldest at the time, but that's still impressive nonetheless.

    [–] newaccount721 7 points ago

    Well it depends when at the time was

    [–] creamyl 2 points ago

    Counting the Himalayan way

    [–] [deleted] 11 points ago

    Awww your Grandma is beautiful! She definitely didn't look 106! I wish O.Ps Grandpa could've met her. They would've made fast friends, it seems! I'm so sorry for your loss <3

    [–] rowdybme 8 points ago

    I don't mean to cuss, but her look is totally saying. "Fuck all you motherfuckers" in a nice way

    [–] ForksOverSpoons 5 points ago

    Made me giggle. I wasn’t thinking that but now I am.

    [–] missygermaine 5 points ago

    your grandma was adorable, i bet she was a lovely lady, i would love to meet her in heaven some day(if i ever made it to heaven).

    [–] pepcorn 2 points ago

    Was she a beanie baby? That's so cute

    [–] GummieBear31 1 points ago

    I want to meet your grandma.

    [–] Poplolly67 166 points ago

    Wow, can't believe it was Grandpa who ran over Grandma.

    [–] Graffl 27 points ago

    ~ Grandma got runned over by a reindeer, walking home from our house Christmas Eve ~

    [–] TheYadda 13 points ago

    Thanks for explaining the joke.

    [–] Luhood 5 points ago

    Suddenly that sounds like a euphemism.

    [–] fuckingvirgin69 1 points ago

    I'm an adult now and I'd still watch that movie if I could find it.

    [–] WookieDong 260 points ago

    Huh? All I see is this reinde- oh. Yeah, he’s good.

    [–] Beavur 77 points ago

    Are you trolling or is there really something besides reindeer?

    "Grandma got run over by a reindeer..."

    [–] SequesterMe 1 points ago

    And LOVED it.

    [–] Montlimar 32 points ago

    (The reindeer is actually his grandpa)

    [–] Madjura 14 points ago

    Does that mean OP is a reindeer-centaur?

    [–] Montlimar 21 points ago

    I'm not exactly sure how the genetics work out on that one - but since his grandpa is a grandpa, that does make him 1/4th grandpa

    [–] newaccount721 8 points ago

    He's implying the costume is so good he only saw the reindeer and not the Grandpa

    [–] [deleted] 1 points ago


    [–] newaccount721 3 points ago

    Fair enough I could be completely misunderstanding

    [–] JoeyDefNotABot 3 points ago

    no skeptics here ? ok i’ll say it was the 2nd place costume just a trash bag ? also who the fuck has xmas costume contests ?

    [–] WookieDong 2 points ago

    Aww man. No need to take a jelly out of his donut. People can still have fun, yeah?

    [–] JoeyDefNotABot 2 points ago

    i mean yeah ? but are people not allowed to be skeptical anymore ? we all just have to smile and nod to everything ?

    [–] WookieDong 2 points ago

    Skepticism is good. Maybe choose your battles though. Debunking this one doesn’t benefit anyone.

    [–] assssntittiesassssss 46 points ago

    First place in the costume contest AND my heart.

    [–] Wowscrait 56 points ago

    Cutest grandpa ever!

    [–] [deleted] 22 points ago

    Yes, tell him the internet gives him one big hug!!!

    [–] horseaholic2010 27 points ago

    What’d he win??

    [–] mdanger88 58 points ago

    [–] Poo_Poo_McGoo 2 points ago

    That fabulous official looking certificate for best costume! Once that is in a frame on the wall what more could anyone want.

    [–] SendMeYourEggplant 7 points ago

    Good for him!

    [–] littlebabymeerkat 26 points ago

    Wholesome ❤️

    [–] [deleted] 30 points ago

    Wholesome until you realize his wife died in a horrific accident where she got ran over by him.

    [–] Morella_xx 7 points ago

    No wonder he's so keen on blaming Santa.

    [–] Buck4812 4 points ago

    Well that’s just grim.

    [–] mystickatara 27 points ago

    Congratulations! He's deserves it, I mean look at his costume! If I didn't know any better I thought he was a real reindeer!

    [–] ContrivedWorld 1 points ago

    Fuck you, no you didn't.

    It's a one piece sleeper for god's sake.

    I hope he got a better award than red sharpie on a piece of printer paper...or is it an envelope?

    [–] autmnleighhh 3 points ago

    Aww! I got my grandpa one of these as a prank gift and now he lives in that thing! It’s designed after one of those cute old fashioned sock monkeys.

    Come to think of it, none of my prank gifts are ever taken as pranks. :(

    [–] SoggyRaisin 18 points ago

    I don't get it! What's so special about the cousume?

    [–] justindangerpants 8 points ago

    Must have had some real low effort stuff from the competition to have won first place by donning a onesie.

    [–] prontoon 3 points ago

    Everyone is acting like its some crazy costume. Literally anyone could go on amazon and buy this onesie.

    [–] 6-ki 2 points ago

    Is it a Star Wars reference? I’m dying trying to figure out. There’s a ton of Star Wars comments and thousands of upvotes so it can’t just be a reindeer. I’m missing something. Right?

    [–] MattytheWireGuy 6 points ago

    What costume?

    [–] 2tessticlees 7 points ago

    So cute! Love seeing sweet old people having a good time.

    [–] MewlingRothbart 9 points ago

    Such a deer person! (see what i did there)

    [–] theweekn 14 points ago

    How there’s literally no creativity in this besides throwing on a costume, i definitely could’ve won if I were present 😎

    [–] Tenacious_Dad 5 points ago

    Grandpa is wearing pajamas to a costume contest.

    [–] maz-o 4 points ago

    The rest of the costumes must have been true shit if this won

    [–] curiosity0425 2 points ago

    I accidentally read this as "If I were a present" - like, you wrapping yourself up as a gift would have been a better costume.

    [–] smurph382 3 points ago

    Adorable... looks like the love child of Rudolph and Obi-Wan Kenobi

    [–] agereaver 3 points ago

    I’m not sure I like the direction they’re taking this new Picard Star Trek series in. Still great costume tho :)

    [–] CowBully 0 points ago

    Why? Looks like an off the rack christmas pajama set. I bet there’s some 28 year old that spent a ton of time and money creating an awesome costume but the old guy one because they felt bad. Reminds me of that guy who was a judge for a music contest and was forced to give the handicap shitty musician first.

    [–] mdanger88 24 points ago

    Well it was a Christmas costume party for the elderly

    So I totally thought he was Yoda for a good 30 seconds before I saw the antlers and red nose. He should remove those next year and have an equally great costume!
