Pool Crashing With The Elderly

Leave it to the elderly to start a new trend nobody needs. On Monday, a “somewhat elderly” New Jersey man decided to go pool crashing in his white-hot Cadillac. According to Fort Lee’s Patch, the hard-charging geriatric “crashed his car through a low concrete wall and ended up in the pool behind the Biarritz condominium on Center Ave.” A successful rescue operation was later carried out, and the dazed thrill seeker reportedly survived his hood-first nosedive. Obviously no member of The Greatest Generation would ever pull such a stunt, which means a Baby Boomer was most likely behind the wheel. Good grief, grandpa. At least he popped the trunk.
