Great-grandma is internet sensation after video of her losing her dentures goes viral

You're never too old to have your kids and grandkids have a good laugh at your expense.

That's the lesson 102-year-old Louise Bonito learned when video captured her blowing out her birthday candles — and her dentures.

A video posted by Lisa Addario (@bakeycakes) on

The good-humored grandma cackles right along with the rest of her family as she picks up her teeth and puts them back in for the camera.

She turned 102 on April 26 and was having a belated celebration with family when the denture incident occurred.

She admitted to ABC News that she didn't feel like putting in her denture glue before blowing out her birthday candles.

"Well, my grandchildren went crazy laughing and laughing," she said. "There's a lot of love here. I always say 'I've been blessed.'"

Indeed she has, with her brood of four sons, a daughter, 12 grandchildren and 18 grandchildren.

The video has since gone viral, racking up 2,300 "likes" in Instagram in just three days.

Happy birthday, Louise. You're one gracious lady.
