Bit of a bizarre one this: 90 year old Bobby Stein from New York ended up drinking half a can of paint, and remains “unfazed”. The grandfather has emerged from this with no side effects, after an ordeal that would leave the average person feeling a little smothered. See how somebody’s grandpa eats paint and lives to tell the tale.
The story was broken by granddaughter Alex, recounting her papa’s love for yogurt.
The near-centenarian mistook a can of mint green paint for his beloved dessert and downed half of it, without a spoon. Upon discovering the half-empty paint tin and its green traces on her grandfather’s mouth, she did what any young woman would do-post it on Twitter!
Before enlisting any emergency help of any kind to her elderly relative who just ingested paint, the New Yorker posted a photo of the yogurt-lover captioned “Sooo my grandpa ate half a quart of paint today thinking it was yogurt.” and even told MailOnline “When I say he loves yogurt, he LIVES for yogurt. My mum buys at least 7 quarts of vanilla Danon yogurt a week”
Well that makes it all better than I guess?
The painting enthusiast added “My grandpa has always loved entertaining people. He doesn’t care whether people are laughing with him or at him”- or whether he could poison himself apparently.
Grandpa Eats Paint tweets gallore
In the midst of all the emulsion, Bob told his perspective via Instagram, writing “Apparently I ate paint this morning…s**t honestly tastes better than yogurt sooo #no #regrets (poison control laughed at me, but they said I’ll be fine).”
I’m not sure which I find more shocking; the fact that he thought yoghurt came in large metal cans with a VOC odour, or that a 90 year old is using Instagram.
If you know of any other “grandpa eats paint” incidents, we’d love to hear from you!
