A grandfather in America became an epic internet sensation after he inadvertently consumed over half a can of paint thinking that it was a “tub of yoghurt”. As per Alex Stein, her 90-year-old grandfather (Bobby on Instagram), loves to eat yoghurt, Daily Mail reports.
“When I say he loves yoghurt, he lives for yoghurt,” Alex told Mail Online. “My mom buys at least seven quarts [nearly seven litres] of vanilla Danon yoghurt a week,” the New York resident mentioned.
Stein also shared the photo of her grandfather with “mint-green lips” along with a picture of the half-empty paint can as the caption read, “Sooo my grandpa ate half a quart of paint today thinking it was yoghurt.”
The post spread like wildfire on Twitter and is en route to touching 5,00,000 likes.
Stein later uploaded a screengrab of a video chat between her and her grandfather. “Update: his stomach’s completely unfazed,” said the caption as reported by The Sun.
“Apparently I ate paint this morning . . . s**t honestly tastes better than yoghurt sooo #no #regrets (poison control laughed at me, but they said I’ll be fine),” the grandfather wrote.
