Not too long ago, one of the co-hosts of Buzzfeed Newsshared an old photo of his grandfather, calling him “a goddamn stunner” in the caption.
Fitzgerald’s next tweet invited others to share photos of their grandparents. Soon came a flood of images of grandpaps and nonnis, all looking amazing and virile enough to grab some elk on the way home for dinner.
Our grandparents were quite glamorous. No one wore their pajamas on the street. Imagine.
Someone even began restoring a few of the old photos just to be nice.
Twitter saw many wedding photos that looked like Hollywood events. The Kardashians should look so good.
What was it about that long ago era that made everyone look like they stepped out of a magazine? Any way to get that kind of mojo back? We could use it.
