Steve Asks 100-Year-Old Sisters If They Get Along – Replies Have 100 Million Dying Of Laughter

No matter who we are, close friendship can bring a lot of meaning to our lives.

Although we meet people who matter to us at different phases throughout our life, some people are special enough to stick with us through thick and thin. We often think of friends as people we meet along our life’s journey, but sometimes the best friends we can ever have are our family members. The older we get, the closer those bonds can become.

That’s the case for two sisters in West Virginia who have recently risen to social media fame.


The sisters are Genevieve Musci and Arlene Cody Bashnett, who are 103 and 98 years old respectively.

To their fans, however, Musci and Bashnett are known as Gramma and Ginga! The two sisters were born to an Italian immigrant family in Clarksburg, West Virginia and have lived very full and exciting lives. The two were raised in America in the early 1900s and made it out of a rural, relatively low-income life to become an international phenomenon.

Although the two are notorious for bickering with one another (and for having foul mouths), the bond between Gramma and Ginga is undeniable.


The social media phenomenon first rose to prominence after their grandson, 47-year-old Frank Fumich, took note of their unique dynamic.

Fumich initially posted videos of Ginga and Gramma on his Facebook page. Still, the videos grew in popularity so much that he soon needed to make them a dedicated YouTube channel as well. Today, Gramma and Ginga have their own Facebook page and their own website where they sell greeting cards, cookbooks and more.

Their kinship has earned them spots on national television as well—including on Jimmy Kimmel live!

Gramma and Ginga’s Facebook page has more than 287,000 likes and their videos continue to be shared around the internet.

According to Fumich, the pair’s chemistry is a beacon of light for many people:
“If you spend five minutes scrolling through people’s comments, 90 percent of people tag a sister or a friend and say ‘this is us in 60 years’ or something to that effect . . . I think it gives people hope that you don’t have to get old and sit in a nursing home and that not everyone gets old and gets Alzheimers and then dies.”

For their part, Gramma and Ginga are happy to share one another’s company and to be in the spotlight! Check out their videos on Facebook.
