Gran aided by roadkill creates armchair

Recommended Posts

Still Waters

At first glance it looks like any other family picture, but this photo of a beaming woman from Toronto, Canada, in front of an armchair has meant she's now become the internet's grandmother.

John Armitage posted an image on Reddit of his grandmother, Nanny Pat, holding on tightly to the hand-made chair, not realising that the image would soon end up on websites in Russia and China with many pretending that his grandmother was their grandmother.

He said the chair had been 25 years in the making, adding: "She used to pick up road kill from the side of the road to compare thread colours. She also bought a peacock for colour comparison. I am not allowed to sit on it."

Of course that spurred commentators to ask more about her commitment to the project and what her plans were for it. More than 116,000 upvotes and 2,300 comments later, it would be fair to say Nanny Pat is a viral hit.

I was expecting a touch of the Ed Gein in there.

Lovely chair, but pick up the roadkill, all she wanted was the fur for the correct colours. (Minus the blood and dirt and tire marks ). 

Nothing about what happened to the animals after. 

Soup is ready folks.
