You hear about old people doing a bunch of stupid things when their bodies and minds become frail and weak, but I think this story about an old grandad eating half a ton of paint because he thought it was yoghurt has to be up there with the dumbest ones out there.

Apparently 90 year old Bobby has a stomach of iron and ingesting a whole bunch of paint didn’t actually end up killing him or even fazing him that much, other than the fact that he had a whole bunch of green stuff all over his lips now instead. Alex Stein from New York posted the images of her grandfather on Twitter and they quickly went viral – here’s what she had to say about Bobby eating so much of the paint:
Sooo my grandpa ate half a quart of paint today thinking it was yogurt pic.twitter.com/wzDfDpQgWB

When I say he loves yogurt, he LIVES for yogurt.
My mum buys at least 7 quarts of vanilla Danon yogurt a week.
My grandpa has always loved entertaining people. He doesn’t care whether people are laughing with him or at him.
He actually said that the paint tasted better than the yoghurt.
I mean I’m no fan of yoghurt so I can kind of believe that, but if he’s such a huge connoisseur of the stuff it’s kinda hard to believe that he didn’t realise that it was actually paint he was shovelling down his gullet instead. Not sure what to make of that but at least the dude is OK and will live to eat yoghurt again. Or maybe he’ll just switch to pain permanently now because he likes the stuff so much apparently.
For more of the same, check out this drunk guy covering himself in silver paint and then ordering a drive thru McDonald’s. What a weirdo.
