Have you met the Internet's adopted grandfather, Kenneth Harmon, a.k.a. "Sad Pawpaw?" He became famous after his granddaughter, Kelsey Harmon, tweeted this photo of him munching a burger at his home in Dibble, Oklahoma. He'd grilled 12 burgers for all six of his grandchildren, but none showed up for supper except Kelsey, a student at Northwestern State University.
The tweet went viral. One reader replied, "I'd give anything to have a burger with my grandfather again," and ten days later a massive, public cookout was held in Harmon's honor. Folks came from Pennsylvania, Virginia, New York, California and Germany. Guests could buy a burger for $2 and a souvenir T-shirt reading "I ate a burger with Sad PawPaw" for $16. Money raised will cover cookout expenses, and anything extra will be given to PawPaw to use as he sees fit. BTW, he's not sad anymore.
