Another use for old people: art criticism

What would Grandma say about this? (Image: Vice)

Our politically correct friends over at Vice asked a few elderly women to critique several artworks because “old people have nothing better to do.” Sure, it sounds mean-spirited, but the results are hilarious. Though, to be clear, we object to the idea that senior citizens are novelty critics just because they’re old: all the women have a background in art. That said, the conceit did allow Vice to write this: “She’s totally a young person trapped in an old person’s body, just a little less coherent.”
