I bet Party Ben misses this one.

It’s an awesome rap video from the 83-year-old “Funky Fraulein.” (“I have to be in bed by nine.”)

All my grandmothers were dead long before I was born, but I’m such a mama’s girl I always mourned never having had them. I’m sure at least one of them would have been like her. Cutest of all, the grandson who no doubt talked her into this (she hefts quite a few wine glasses in the video) makes a cameo.

Enjoy.

FACT:

Mother Jones was founded as a nonprofit in 1976 because we knew corporations and the wealthy wouldn't fund the type of hard-hitting journalism we set out to do.

Today, reader support makes up about two-thirds of our budget, allows us to dig deep on stories that matter, and lets us keep our reporting free for everyone. If you value what you get from Mother Jones, please join us with a tax-deductible donation today so we can keep on doing the type of journalism 2020 demands.
