How Sad Is This!?

Postby Saint » Fri, 13 Jan 2006 9:19 pm

Hi, My name is Mike Carmichael and I live in Alexandria, Indiana with my wife Glenda. I'd like to tell you about Alexandria's only ROADSIDE ATTRACTION...the Worlds Largest Ball of Paint.



Imagine an ordinary baseball...Now imagine that same baseball with over 19,100 coats of paint on it. Getting the picture? Good, because that's exactly what my wife, Glenda and I have done for the past 28 1/2 years. Now that ordinary baseball that once weighed less than one pound now weighs in around 1,700 pounds!


That's right, recently weighing in at 1,700 pounds with a circumference of 119" inches and still growing to this very day. This ball is truly remarkable with over 19,100 coats of paint on it!





Ultimate Goal
20,000 Coats of Paint




Diameter
38"




Circumference
119"




Weight
Around 1,700 lbs




Coats of Paint
19,100

Damn Funny Tiki. I'd say more but we had a demented, rabid, foundling of a pekenese named Tiki and your name makes me shutter just a little.

I hope you shudder too :wink: I hope I don't look like your beloved pet though.

..but he does look so so much relieved, though he still stands like it's err..'still one side heavy'.

Well, I for one think that the wondrous presentation-babe (was she on 'The Price is Right' ca 1903?) on the right has succeeded in looking like a woman in her seventies when she probably is 53.

Why don't you suck back the paint fumes from thousands of paint cans and see how hot you look. :P No wonder she can't get her shoes sorted... :lol:

I think she looks like she's channeling Ginger from Gilligan's Island with that crazy flippy hair do.
