Whose Braided Up Grandpa is This?

I was minding my own business when someone sent me the pic below on Tumblr.

Braided grandpa

CHECK GRANDPA OUT!! Lol! Why is he so adorable? Sitting in a computer lab with his bookbag, jean jacket and… slicky ricky straight back BRAIDS (also referred to as jail braids). Chile iCackled.

Sooo you know Granddad has a braider in his neighborhood or retirement village who comes to whip his mane into submission every 2 weeks religiously. His braids look all neat (well as neat as braids with hair that fine can look). They look fresh. I ain’t mad. E’em though I could be, since it should be a misdemeanor for any grown man to still rock cornrows.

I’m actually impressed by the fact that he ain’t got no male-pattern baldness. ALL of Grandpa’s hair is present. Thin, but present. And for him to choose to rock braids in his sunset years though… lol. Lemme find out Snoop got a Vanilla Granddad he ain’t tell us about. Or Uncle. Walking around look like a bleached Slim Thug. I love it.

Oh and you know this OG be pulling all the geriatric ladies. You can tell his swag is on a hundred thousand fiber pills. He prolly runs things at Bingo night. WHO MAD?

      I think locs would be better. I accept locs because they can look great on everyone, grown or not. Finger waves? NAWL!

    Yer Mostest Awesomelynessis,
    He reminds me of the rather smelly dudes who use the public library for web-surfin’ porn.
    Got the Wal-China shoppin’ cart parked out front.
    With a Disabled tag hangin’ on it.
    In the Handicapped spot.

    (Does he have an old copy of XXL mag in his black garbage bag … luggage too?)

    He is too cute! And the fact that he is actually working a computer tells me he has some smarts too. Game run game.
