You can spend all the time you want in the gym, but there’s simply not substitute for a good old fashioned, manly beat down. That’s what 71-year old Phillip Graham taught a masked gunman that broke into his house in South Carolina. The best part about it, though, is that his weapon of choice wasn’t a baseball bat or a pistol kept under his pillow. This cranky old curmudgeon grabbed what was handy to beat the hell out of the would-be breaker and enterer. And, in this case, that happened to be a Swiffer and a dustbuster.

WYFF reports: 

"He told me to get down and I grabbed the Swiffer, started jabbing him with it and it broke off, so I still kept on jabbing,” Graham said. "I told him, ‘You get out of my house, you sorry son of a bitch, I’ll kill you.’ I kept jabbing him and he backed out and ran to the back of the house and then across behind the house."

You’ve got to respect that old school, white knuckle tough guy move. This is the sort of guy that, if you got jumped, would pound the table incredulously and put together a group of vigilantes to exact some black and blue justice.
