"Fox & Friends" reports she was trapped under a 500 pound tree after trying to chop it down in her yard.

Grandma just took "get off my lawn" to a whole new level.

Sounds like subby confused dumb and bad

/sappy tag was acceptable as well

That "badass" is "farking retarded".

Even a small tree is bigger than you think. Always notch well the direction of fall, THEN go around the back and chop through HIGHER than your notch. remember to make the chips fly, cut wide and keep your ax sharp.

When did "badass" become "dumbass"?

\didn't get the memo...

'Saves' = called the police.

I thought she might have lifted the tree off the old lady and threw it into the air...

I hope the neighbor has good insurance, though Medicare will likely cover it.  A helicopter trip starts at $15k and goes up.

No creepy pedo comments yet about how she could lift YOUR tree anytime? Wow, I'm proud of you today, Fark.

I could see my grandmother (RIP) doing this back in the day.  Probably with some WW2 surplus rusty ax she found out in the shed.

She was a tough old bird...

Sock Ruh Tease: "Fox & Friends" reports she was trapped under a 500 pound tree after trying to chop it down in her yard.

And it's pretty obvious she wasn't "trying" to chop down the tree. She did it.

She doesn't run as fast as she used to, though.

Has this story found its way to Reddit yet?  If so, I'm sure that the pedophile/ephebophile debate is already raging there.

I'm not sure if I'm really impressed by a teenager looking for the source of "Help"-cries and calling 911 and dad, but I'm, like, impressed that the 16yo didn't say "like" once while telling the story.
 
2013-04-13 07:22:59 PM
All right, I don't usually complain about the Hero tag being watered down but it's getting ridiculous today.  She called 911, then ran to fetch dad who was the one to lift the tree.

There was a Farker who told the story of him and another young idiot trying to weld. Typical noob stuff was happening until Grandma came out of the kitchen, walked out to the welder and laid down a perfect bead. I think the Farker said she worked in shipyard during WWII.

Video doesn't load for me, but yeah... There's a reason I don't play with chainsaws unless there's at least someone within screaming distance to point and laugh when I lop my foot off.

Oh old people, never admitting when they should let young people handle shiat. But always the first to offer you candy. :D

Um, Granny was doing it old school, with an axe. No chainsaws were harmed in the process.
 
2013-04-13 07:58:29 PM
And Little Audrey just laughed and laughed, 'cause she knew all along that her grandma couldn't carioca.

(You'll need to Google it if you're under 85 years old.)

Granny had 69 years longer than I had to figure out how to drop a tree safely... :P

/ like I said, the video did not load for me.
// was given an axe long before I was given a chainsaw.

How far do you think that social security check goes? Especially now that it's been cut and medicare rates are going up? Boot straps son, boot straps

Grandma is far from "badass".  Maybe you got dumbass and badass confused.

BGates: Grandma is far from "badass".  Maybe you got dumbass and badass confused.


She is already eating cat food and she needed the wood to keep from freezing at night. I think she wanted the tree to fall on her so she could spend a week or so in a nice warm hospital bed with 3 squares a day.

As a Protestant Christian, I'm okay with this. It's a beautiful sculpture that sends a powerful message. And I don't understand why Catholics would have a problem with this. They LOVE iconography of Jesus suffering. The bloodier the better. Maybe that's the problem. There's not enough blood.

How many old ladies must be crushed to make you Jesus freaks happy?  I thought you only did figurative human sacrifice.

Many years ago, the 86 year old woman who lived next door came over and asked if she could hire me to shovel the snow off of her wood shed.  She said she would do it herself, but that she had fallen the year before while doing it.

/ Old people like doing things for themselves, as Max McGee.
//in other news, all you have to do now days is call 911 and you are a hero
