The normal rosy hue that Crabby Pants would usually have, has turned to a rather disturbing shade of blue.
Speaking of Rosy Hues
A newlywed couple returned from a romantic honeymoon to find their home painted bright pink with white spots.
Steve and Hayley O’Rourke discovered the prank after spending two weeks on the Greek island of Rhodes.
The groom’s brother Russell planned the Mr Blobby-style paint job in revenge for a similar joke six years ago.
Steve built a 4ft-high brick wall across Russell’s driveway while he was honeymooning in Barbados.
Russell, who spent two days transforming the house, said: “What you reap is what you sow.
“The neighbors were coming out asking what I was doing painting their house.
“I reckon there were hundreds of people stopping and taking pictures. Even the police were slowing down to take a look.”
The terraced property in Southend, Essex, is now bright pink with white polka dots.
Locals have nicknamed it “the Mr Blobby house” after the 90s television character.
Luckily dad-of-two Steve has seen the funny side of the joke and has no plans to repaint his home.
Hayley added: “It’s making a lot of people smile, but it’s also causing a few near pile-ups on the road, with people stopping and staring.
“It’s very extreme - you forget about it when you’re in the house but then when you step outside you realize how bright pink it is.”
They are now planning an even bigger prank for their older brother David - who is due to get married next year.
If I were David, I would call off the wedding or hire security guards depending on which seems more warranted.
A North Carolina mother had her son arrested this week for taking her Pop-Tarts without permission, police report.
The child was busted on a larceny charge, according to the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department, whose officers were summoned Monday night to a Charlotte home by Latasha Renee Love, the accused juvenile’s 37-year-old mother.
A police report notes that “the known suspect stole Pop-tarts belonging to his mother at their home at 530 Goldstaff Ln. The suspect was juvenile arrested at the time of the offense.”
Cops described the stolen goods as “Foodstuffs” valued at $5.
Love, who reportedly has had discipline issues with her child, apparently decided to have him arrested as some kind of a lesson. The misdemeanor case against the boy will be handled in juvenile court.
Now that is one strict parent or someone that has a serious Pop Tart addiction.
Still Talking About Pink
Pink as in Potted Pigs...Not an alliteration that you hear everyday, I am guessing.
With Washington state about to embark on a first-of-its-kind legal market for recreational marijuana, the budding ranks of new cannabis growers face a quandary over what to do with the excess stems, roots and leaves from their plants.
Susannah Gross, who owns a five-acre farm north of Seattle, is part of a group experimenting with a solution that seems to make the most of marijuana's appetite-enhancing properties - turning weed waste into pig food.
Four pigs whose feed was supplemented with potent plant leavings during the last four months of their lives ended up 20 to 30 pounds heavier than the half-dozen other pigs from the same litter when they were all sent to slaughter in March.
"They were eating more, as you can imagine," Gross said.
Giving farm animals the munchies is the latest outcome of a ballot measure passed by Washington voters in November making their state one of the first to legalize the recreational use of pot.
"We can have pot chickens, pot pigs, grass-fed beef," he said.
Gross' pigs were butchered by William von Schneidau, who has a shop at the famous Pike Place Market in downtown Seattle. In March, von Schneidau held a "Pot Pig Gig" at the market, serving up the marijuana-fed pork as part of a five-course meal.
He quickly sold out the remaining weed-fed meat at his shop but plans another pot-pig feast later this summer, he said.
"Some say the meat seems to taste more savory," he said.
Turns out the pot is the anti-diet drug. You really would think that would be a negative for some users. But it doesn't seem to bother pigs. (hope I am not offending any pot users)
