Death Metal Grandma
Q: “What am I doing today?”
This 93-year-old Holocaust survivor-turned-death-metal-grandma is Betty White meets Marilyn Manson, except a billion times cooler. She NEEDS to be a picture book, stat.

- Nobody knows why or the story. I need to hear the story, even if somebody makes it up.
