A Treasury Of Your Best Weird Grandpa Stories

In a Twitter discussion about cooking and eating blood, Drew Magary got this reply:

That set off a string of stories about the weird things that people's grandpas would do. Some stories were about habits left over from different times. Some were about showing how hardcore they were. And some were pranks from old men who wanted to laugh at their grandchild's naivety.

There are a bunch of the best Tweets about grandpas and their weird ways at The Concourse. Found at Metafilter, where you'll find a lot more grandpa stories.

The only g'pa story I can think of is how he would stand in front of the open fridge, grab a carton of buttermilk, face upward, and drink it by pouring it into his mouth without the carton touching his lips. That way he wouldn't need a glass.

One of the stories mentioned putting butter on "bread so thick, you could see the impressions of his teeth in it after he took a bite." There's a Danish word for that! Tandsmør = "tooth butter".
