February 22, Twitter user, Alex Stein, posted a surprising photo to her timeline.  She found her 90-year-old grandfather, Bobby, with a half empty can of mint colored paint and paint on his face.  In an interview with Daily Mail, Alex said, “When I say he loves yogurt, he LIVES for yogurt. My mom buys at least 7 quarts of vanilla Dannon yogurt a week.”  Alex later posted a clip from a video chat between her and Bobby where she said, “his stomach [is] completely unfazed.”

Bobby took to Instagram with his new found fame.  His love for yogurt was documented almost two years before the paint incident. On February 18, 2017, he posted a picture of his face photoshopped on another person with the caption, “When mom says no more yogurt.”  Twitter users debated whether the paint was mint chocolate chip or pistachio yogurt.  On February 22, Bobby made a post on Instagram with the caption, “Apparently I ate paint this morning… but #no #regrets (poison control laughed at me, but they said I’ll be fine.)”  He also posted a video of him on February 26 eating yogurt from far away with a caption talking about how crazy the paparazzi has been.  

Alex clearly was not lying when she said, “My grandpa has always loved entertaining people.  He doesn’t care whether [people] are laughing at him or with him.” Bobby is a perfect example of making the best out of a bad situation, and hopefully, he does not eat any more “pain-stachio yogurt” any time soon.
