It’s kind of annoying when people text in all-caps unless it’s to warn the world that “ALIENS HAVE LANDED IN TIMES SQUARE.”

Or unless it says this: “MY GRANDMA DID A KEG STAND AT MY BROTHER’S GRADUATION.”

Grandma did what?

GRANDMA DID A KEG STAND.

That’s what Madison Munoz tweeted earlier this month after grandma brought the party to a grinding halt by flipping upside-down and doing a hand-stand on top of a keg while taking a big ol’ swig of Michelob Ultra.

Munoz, 20, told Inside Edition her family was gathered to celebrate her brother Jake’s high school graduation in Arlington, Texas. The night before, a conversation with family and friends involved the topic of keg stands, and grandma said she’d like to try one, Munoz said.

Sure, grandma. Whatever you say, grandma.

But she wasn’t kidding. Out came the keg the next day, and everyone started egging on Muriel Holshevnikoff.

Two family friends flipped her upside down, Munoz took pictures and boom! Grandma’s gone viral. Munoz’s tweet has been liked more than 13,000 times and retweeted nearly 3,000 times since June 4.

Two of her photos show Holshevnikoff upside down. In another grandma is flashing two thumbs-up.

“She’s 79 years old, so we were super careful when we were holding her up and she went for a few seconds and took it like a champ,” Munoz told Buzzfeed.

That must have been one heck of a party ’cause grandma wasn’t the only one who pulled off a keg stand that day.

Holshevnikoff was kind of proud of herself. She’s using one of those photos of herself in midair as her Facebook profile photo.

“Everyone was shocked that she actually did it,” Munoz told Inside Edition.

“The whole party had a good laugh about it. She was definitely the star of graduation weekend. I had people messaging me saying, ‘Your grandma is my idol.’”

No.

GRANDMA IS A BOSS.
