Yes, this was news. News sites actually published this story yesterday so who am I not to do the same.

Bobby Stein, a 90-year-old New York native, has somehow managed to drink half a can of paint with no consequences to his health whatsoever.

The whole world found out about it when his terrible attention-seeking granddaughter posted it on Twitter to get clicks and likes. This terrible attention-seeking blogger is now doing it for the same reason.

Alex Stein, from New York, last week posted about her grandad, Bobby, who loves yoghurt. Bobby had mistaken a can of mint green paint for his favourite food item and downed half of it. Alex discovered the half-empty can of paint and Bobby – complete with mint green mouth – and posted a photo of him with the caption: “Sooo my grandpa ate half a quart of paint today thinking it was yoghurt.”
