Myrna Tellingheusen is the name of the internet’s most loved grandma ever. Because the grey-haired lady has been making her 137.3K followers on Twitter chuckle every day since 2015. And she's nowhere near ready to stop.

Her satirical pearls, insightful wisdom bites, and humorous puns have been perfectly capturing the stereotypes old folk face on a daily basis. From “loving the sound of a good vacuum seal” to wishing she could “offer a refreshing slice of my delicious gelatin fruit loaf to all the firefighters,” Myrna is definitely one of the most likable, yet absurdly funny virtual personas out there.

"My story is long and fascinating. However, the short version of this story is I want to make social media fun," the grandma previously told Bored Panda, so the stage is yours, Myrna. Oh, and after you're done, don't forget to check out more of Myrna's wit on our part 1 and part 2.

As a kid, I misplaced my cordless landline phone way more often than I misplace my cell phone.

Bored Panda reached out to the internet’s most loved grandma Myrna to find out how her life has been so far. Myrna said that after a rewarding career as an executive assistant at Hughes Aircraft company, she decided to bring her organizational skills to her neighborhood of Vaca Muerta Estates, a retirement community just north of San Diego, California. Today, Myrna is a chair at the First Presbyterian Church, “where she also serves as a member of the Handbell Choir.”

Some of her followers want to believe the old lady behind all the life advice is real, while others think she's nothing more than a fictional character. The truth remains largely a mystery, but it’s obvious that whoever the grandma is, it doesn’t make her internet presence any less real and funny.

Myrna said that she receives her inspiration and strength from the Holy Bible. “You will find no greater book that gives purpose and meaning when life sometimes seems hopeless.”

She also considers herself a student of life, since “through careful observation from my binoculars, I gauge what’s happening around my neighborhood, whether its potholes in the Cheesecake Factory parking lot, Doris throwing beer cans on my yard, or Carol substituting Cool Whip for heavy cream with Cool Whip.”

The grandma is convinced that she knows all the answers to many of society’s problems, and she’d help everyone “if people would only heed my advice.”

Myrna also confessed that she wishes she could tweet thousands of times a day, “but casseroles don't make themselves.”

When it comes to building her viral Twitter account, Myrna said that it all started when her nephew Lyle “downshifted The Twitter onto my computer to distract me from writing tersely worded letters to our newspaper's editor.” As time passed, Myrna realized that she “no longer needs to be invited to dinner parties to rearrange people’s furniture.”

“I can still provide my sage, no-nonsense advice to people who are clamoring for a sense of decorum in a stressful world.” But while grandma has a huge audience following her every tweet, she is sure to remain “true to myself in every sense of the word.”

*snert* OK that one was hilarious as well as being true. Seriously, there are thousands of apps I can use on my phone, but half the time I can't use it to talk to someone and be understood. The only app I want for my phone is 'phone'.

I was thinking that just the other day. We have government quarantine facilities to get returning citizens and residents into the country but keep their rona out. I wish I could put all the gross pro-Tr*mp trolls from the NZ Herald comments section into a managed isolation facility until their bad personalities go away.
