Though he may type with one finger and take an hour to respond to a simple question, if you have a texting grandpa, there’s probably no other texter in your life who can measure up. If you aren’t lucky enough to be a regular receiver of funny old people texts, don't worry! We’ve gathered a collection of funny texts from grandpas that’ll have you considering buying Gramps a smartphone for Christmas.

As you’ll see below, average texts from grandpa range from questions about slang to revelations about his dirty mind. Some of these texting grandfathers are too old for tact, and love to reminisce about everything from their cocaine-fueled youths to their long-lost sex lives. Other tech-savvy granddads are still a little confused about you young whipper snappers and your YOLO and "Beyoncy."

Here are some of the hilarious, cute, and occasionally confusing texts that only a grandpa would send.
