Pasadena’s Oldest Residents To Fight To The Death


July 7, 2015 - Local / Uncategorized

Reports from the Walnut Avenue Senior Home suggest the two oldest residents of Pasadena will compete in a battle royale to determine who shall be the town’s oldest senior.

According to sources, Meredith Stapler, 102. will fight Rodney Baker, 101, in front of the public library on Walnut street. Stapler says while Baker instigated the fight she was more than willing to take him on.

“One day at the senior center he says to me, ‘I can’t wait for you to die so that I become the oldest person in town.’” she told The Pasadenoid.

So I said, ‘Well what are you waiting for? Come at me, bitch!’ And the fight was on,” she added.

Baker says the two have had tension for years, and he is excited to finally settle the score.

“I’ve had beef with that woman since 1943, when she had the health department shut down my beef factory,” he said in a press conference outside the senior center.

“Since then, I vowed to never lose anything again to her. So I will make sure she does not defeat me as Pasadena’s oldest resident.”

The fight will be held Tuesday, July 14th at 4:00pm. Those interested in betting on the fight should contact Don Louie, a resident at the senior home.
