“World’s Best Grandma” Card Written in 2007 Still Holds Up
In 2007, Meghan Cax, who was six years old at the time, wrote a card for her Grandmother, Beverly Cax. It read “You are the bestest bestest best grandma in the world. I luv it wen you play with me and reed me books and mussaje my back.”
The card was leaked to the public and immediately received scathing backlash, with one reporter writing, “Cax is making brash claims with absolutely no empirical evidence to back it up. Despite what she may tell you, there is no agreement among the scientific community on who the objectively ‘bestest bestest best’ grandmother is.”
However, after 13 years of interviews and observational studies, researchers across the country have reached a consensus with Cax’s original hypothesis: Beverly Cax is in fact the best grandmother in the world. Researchers conducted experiments where Cax and other grandmothers played games, read books, and gave massages. After the experiments, the 75 researchers from the international panel unanimously agreed that Beverly Cax deserved the title.
During an interview about the findings, Meghan Cax simply stated, “I knew it.”
Cax had to leave the interview early in order to make it on time to her grandmother’s house for their weekly Diet Coke and Popcorn Party.
