When these ladies first met 94 years ago, the world was a completely different place. Irene Cook and Alice Jensen were born in Chicago in 1913, ABC7 reported. They met at St. Gregory’s School in first grade and “took to each other almost immediately,” Jensen told the outlet.
In 1918, the year they met, Woodrow Wilson was president, Congress was grappling with an amendment that would give women the right to vote and World War I was being fought.
Now, the two 100-year-olds are still best friends, and recently appeared on the “Steve Harvey Show” where they shared their thoughts on today’s pop culture — chatting about everything from selfies and twerking to Justin Bieber and iPhones.
Between not believing that someone actually named their child North West and referring to Justin Bieber as “Justin Beaver,” these two are nothing short of brilliant.
