    Right when I was believing it was a fake pose, I saw the clincher. The ivy over Rambo’s back. Now I know this was the real thing. I am scared. Please save the world Grambo.

  2. Audrey says:

    Hey! All my grandkids call me “Grambo” ‘cuz my last name begins with “Bo”!!! But I don’t need a gun – all my grandchildren are perfect – they never do anything wrong – do you kids? Love you, Grambo.

    While it’s been confirmed that this was taken outside the Hollywood Wax Museum (note “W” and “us” behind Grambo,) I tend to think “Rambo” is a real guy. Likely he’s one of the (seemingly infinite) number of people who (barely) impersonate celebrities outside of the Chinese Theater, Ripley’s Believe It or Not, Kodak Theater, etc. Grambo seems a little too snuggled in behind his knife to believe she was positioned next to a waxwork. The spread-eagle legs make more sense then, too. He definitely was getting in close to make a tight photo.

    • MC says:

      umm..have you ever been to a wax museum? The wax figures they have in those museums are usually very real looking. This is in fact a wax figure, not the real person.

    Aside from getting on her bad side, having this lady in the neighborhood would be somewhat comforting. 8^p

  5. Noneya says:

    I love this picture! She obviously knows how to have a good time and not to take life so seriously all the time. Good on ya.

  6. lalalala says:

    I told you to stay OFFA MY LAWN!

  7. Where’s her motorized wheelchair/getaway vehicle?

  8. Nathan says:

    Granny’s got a gun.

  9. DMF says:

    They’re just protecting the Hollywood sign until Hef’s purchase of surrounding land goes through…

  10. Pants says:

    Not awkward, just awesome!

    “Any of you boys want to shoot, now’s the time. There isn’t one of us that doesn’t want to be someplace else. But this is what we do, who we are. Live for nothing, or die for something. Your call.”

    Best AFP photo ever.

  12. m says:

    Nothing says “It’s time for combat!” like Sas shoes.

    This lady is awesome.

  13. cranky says:

    …for the last time, STOP PICKING MY HYDRANGEAS! >shakes AK-47 at neighborhood kids<

  14. Sue says:

    The hose are adorable, but I think they are trumped by the velcro sturdy shoes!

    World’s first Tea Party activist!

  16. luckybug says:

    Hah! I don’t know what it is about little old ladies and action films. My great-grandmother LOVED watching Arnold Schwarzenegger. I never thought to ask her about Rambo, though. My grandmother enjoys martial arts films and regular action, although I’m generally mortified to watch them with her if there turns out to be a lot of swearing.

    Get your hands off my Social Security, you damned, dirty politicians!!!

  18. Alan says:

    It’s Marnie expecting the arrival of guests for dinner. They won’t forget the regulation serving spoon THIS year!!

  19. SteveB says:

    Sooooo many wrecky aspects to this photo where does one begin?

    First thought: “That’s not the way you hold an M16. Get it right, Grandma, or I’ll cut you. Don’t think I won’t.”

    Second thought: The wide spread legs stance to try to hide the height difference.

    Third thought: Comfy shoes!

    Then I noticed the hose.

    • JustMe says:

      The wide spread legs stance to try to hide the height difference? Really? (Hey Marv, get out there and spread Rambo’s legs a few more inches….the old lady’s only 5-1 and the height difference is just awkward…)

  20. Don says:

    Two little known facts about our “Rambo” :
    1. He failed “Camouflage 101”
    2. Favorite album- Bryan Adams’ “Cuts like a …” well, you know.

  21. Mah says:

    Brigitte Nielsen’s plastic surgery seems to have lost a stitch or two.

  22. Tim S says:

    “I called BINGO first! Now you siddown!”

  23. Paul Metzger says:

    He looks like Nicolas Cage.

  24. ScoutC says:

    She reminds me of my aunt who passed away at age 102. At age 87, was complaining that she no longer could see well enough to pick off the woodchucks in the garden from the back porch. Ever since I could remember there was a shotgun and .22 propped behind the bathroom door. While she wouldn’t go in for that new-fangled high powered business, she knew how to handle a firearm.

  25. MaryCherry says:

    “I got yer death panel right here, sucka!”

  26. MMB says:

    Say hello to my little friend.

  27. cdean says:

    Oh my gosh. This is epic!

  28. Paul says:

    She’s about to take out some punk kid that’s peeing on her tree.

  29. I wish she were my Grambo.

    This woman is awesome.

  30. Lisa says:

    That is TOTALLY COOL!!!!! Not awkward, AWESOME!

  31. Amy says:

    This woman looks EXACTLY like my grandmother who has been dead for over twenty years. Whoever posted this, please let me know where you got this picture. Thanks.

    • M.C. says:

      Hi Amy. This is a recent photo of my great-grandmother. Yes she is still alive and well at age 91! (92?). This photo was taken by my aunt when they went to visit a wax museum.

  32. Zach says:

    Who are you calling “expendable” punk?

    • iLOLd says:

      “I’ll bust a cap in your kiester, you young whipper-snapper!”
      And, she’ll get Medieval on your hiney, when she starts having flash-backs!!!


  33. mindy682 says:

    Yes everyone, her stockings are adorable. we all have said it enough! I have to say this is my new favorite! What a spunky lady with a great sense of humor. Looks like this was in a wax museum. Way to go grambo, keep having fun and joking through life!

  34. Harry says:

    “Do we get to win this time??”
    “DO WE WHAAAT???”
    “Sure you can go for a swim.”

  35. Jen in CG. OR says:

    just love the baggy, saggy knee high stockings!

  36. Jen says:

    The sagging knee-high’s are the best part of the picture! No time to put down the gun and pull those up… too many people to shoot!

  37. Jen says:

    You sure as heck won’t stomp on HER flowerbed while playing in the yard!!!

    That picture just makes me giggle. Thanks for sharing!

  38. haleysmomma says:

    her pantyhose are the icing on the cake….love it!!!

  39. RHB says:

    I need you, Boomin’ Granny!

  40. michchick says:

    Stop! or my mom will shoot!

  41. Michele says:

    Love the knee highs around her ankles…I’d be shakin in my boots if I ran into this granny in a dark alley!

  42. Howdy-ho says:

    is that wax, or a lookalike, and where did she get that gun

  43. Bruce says:

    I thought her wrinkled stockings were priceless, but, come to think about it, she may not be wearing stockings!

  44. Franklette says:

    YES!!! Killer.

  45. Cat says:

    STOP! or Rambo’s mom will shoot!!!

  46. Hexipooh says:

    Grannie’s gotta gun! The whole world’s come undone! Everybody is on the run!

    (Damn, hot pink looks good with camo!)

    • Chad says:

      Look at the way she’s holding the gun. I know she probably has never held one before, but she apparently has never seen a movie/photo of a man with a gun.

  47. I don’t remember her character in the movie. Was she Crenna’s wife?

  48. Susan says:

    Love the socks!

  49. Jeepers says:

    I especially love the droopy hose. BIG WIN! 🙂

  50. TREEMAN says:

    first blood. yeah.

    from GERMANY with love
