Old men offered free "bad advice" as a joke at first, but now it's a phenomenon


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.
