92-yr-old US man eats half a litre of paint mistaking it for Yogurt, read details

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 92-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.”

Yogurt is a dairy product made by fermenting milk with specific bacterial cultures. Yogurt is traditionally made from cow’s milk, but it can also be made from the milk of other animals like goats, sheep, or buffalo. In recent years, there are also non-dairy alternatives made from soy, almond, coconut, and other plant-based sources.

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.

Yogurt is rich in calcium, protein, and probiotics, which are beneficial for digestive health. It is available in various flavors and textures, including plain, flavored, Greek yogurt (which is strained to remove whey, making it thicker), and different fat levels (such as full-fat, low-fat, and fat-free), catering to different taste preferences and dietary needs.
