Grammy is an award for the best grandmother or grandfather of the year. At a large ceremony in Hollywood each year, millions of grandparents gather together and battle it out in a football stadium to prove who is the greatest.
“Twelve, and counting”
- Cheek pinching - this event involves one grandparent teaming up with a stunt child for a rapid fire cheek pinching session. It is a timed event, and the highest number of pinches win. Grandparents are allowed to shout phrases to spur them on during the event such as 'who's the cutest little pumpkin', 'my aren't you growing big' and 'you look more like your father every day'.
- Knit off - a large ball of wool is tossed into the crowd and the first grandma or grandpa who comes out with a poorly knitted xmas jumper wins.
- Life lecture - during this event the contestants lecture for as long and as boringly as possible. It is a duration event. The longest ever lecture lasted 8 months and 14 days.
Deaths during battle
It is inevitable that a strenuous competition for elderly people will result in some deaths, last year saw 32% of the entrants dead by day four of the seven day event. The most common cause of death is heart attack, followed by murder. It is a highly competitive event when the elderly have set their heart on winning the coveted grammy award.
