102-Year-Old Loses Teeth While Blowing Out Candles

Some people are mortified by mishaps when all eyes are on them -- but not Louise Bonito. In fact, we're not sure anyone has ever handled an awkward situation this well!

When the 102-year-old leaned in to blow out the candles on her birthday cake, her teeth decided to take a closer look and toppled onto the table.

Rather than look stunned, Bonito got a real kick out of the dental drama, cracking up as her family dissolved into laughter as well.

My hero. My grandmother Nonnie. She'll be 100 next month, still going strong...

Bonito's granddaughter Lynsey told Rumble all about her newly-famous grandmother's life. Lynsey wrote, "She is very active, still cooking, living in her own house (where the video was filmed) and is totally lucid. She has 5 children, 12 grandchildren, and 18 great grandchildren."

Lynsey says the family was "hysterical for hours," and noted that her grandmother "didn't like to bother using denture glue, and was happy to give us all a laugh."

Here's hoping those chompers stayed put when she actually took a bite!
