It's Not a Frenzy Until the Old People Lose Their F***ing Minds

Gawker tipped me off to this piece at CNNMoney

Facebook’s initial public offering has been one of the hottest topics of conversation among seniors living in a retirement community in Boynton Beach, Fla., said 79-year-old resident Alvan Sweet.

Three of his retired friends — two former doctors and a business owner — have been badgering Sweet to help them secure shares. Facebook (FB) will officially price its shares Thursday night, and begin trading on the Nasdaq Friday morning under the ticker “FB.”

Despite his hesitations, Sweet’s friends are still chasing the Facebook IPO, hoping that their brokers will be able to secure them a piece of the pie, he said.

Sorry kids, Grandma didn’t leave you any money – between coach buses dropping her off at Atlantic City each weekend and getting filled at the day’s high for Facebook’s IPO, there just isn’t any left.

You still have that other grandma though, right?
