Joe might be happily married, but he’s wading into the dating scene again anyway thanks to a push from his grandson.

The 89-year-old man has already had some introduction to the modern dating world through learning about the terms people use today and the art of wingmanning. Now, he’s learning about another essential part of the modern man looking for a date: Tinder.

In an elaborate ruse to get laid, Joe’s grandson Cole made him a profile as a 21-year-old filmmaker—and Joe got ready to play the “senile old man card” when Cole swooped in for the rescue.

It essentially blows up in their faces, because someone isn’t likely to go out with you when you and your grandfather just lied to them. If nothing else, though, Joe had some fairly interesting conversations, and it’ll make for a good Tinder story for the girls. Plus, Joe now knows what pegging is, so there’s that.
