Old Men Offered Free "Bad Advice" as a Joke at First, but Now It's a Phenomenon

By Mustafa Gatollari

What started off as a joke for a group of men from Utah ended up becoming something of a phenomenon.

One of the undeniable perks of getting older — aside from developing a so-corny-it's-amazing sense of humor — is the wisdom that comes from having been around the block once or twice. Your collective life experiences,  as varied as they are, should afford you a certain amount of useful, real-world knowledge.

Being able to share that knowledge with whoever will listen is another perk. The older you are, the more people are likely to listen to you ramble on, because who wants to be the kind of meanie who shuts down a geezer (or geezette)? Not me, that's for sure.

Anyone who's lucky enough to have grown up around their grandparents will know what I'm talking about.

Even if you didn't, chances are there's a group of elderly gentlemen or women in your area who hang out at the local diner or deli and share stories — like this group of friends from Salt Lake City, UT. 

Once they realized they'd heard all of each other's stories, they decideed to stir things up a bit by setting up a table at their local farmers market and giving out some free advice.
