From having an 83-year-old granny who has her way with fkbois to the increasing number of kickass grannies appearing on TV and film, old ladies have been getting stuff done recently. And now we have a new entry to the “badass grannies” list: an 82-year-old woman who took down a would-be home intruder with her bare hands.
According to WHAM-TV, 82-year-old Willie Murphy was about to go to bed one night when a drunk chap started pounding on her door and demanding he be let in. After calling the police, Murphy was forced to spring into action when the dude broke through her front door.
The ensuing confrontation turned out to be a one-sided beat down for the ages… in favour of Murphy that is. She may be an 82-year-old lady who stands at only 152cm and weighs 47kg, but she also happens to be the 2018 World Natural Powerlifting Federation Upstate New York champ.
Chatting to Democrat and Chronicle, Murphy says she attacked the man with a stool and hit him so hard she broke the stool. As the bloke laid disoriented on the ground, she poured shampoo in his eyes before she continued wailing on him with a broom.
As Murphy was kicking the crap out of the intruder, she had only one thought going through her head: “If it’s my time to go to hell, I’m taking him with me!”
Damn, that’s awesome.
By the time the police arrived at Murphy’s house, the dude was ready for an ambulance (which was eventually called for him). The cops were so impressed that they stayed back behind and asked for a few photos with Murphy because it’s not everyday you meet an 82-year-old badass.
But the thing that sealed Murphy’s position in the “Badass grannies Hall of Fame” was the thing was her response after the intruder was taken away. When asked about whether she would press charges against the guy, she decided no because he’s paid for his crime already, saying “I already sent him to the hospital.”
Yep that settles it. When I grow up, I want to be cool as Willie Murphy.
