Enrique dos Santos was trying to look like the Incredible Hulk but managed to use the wrong paint.
The 35-year-old swimming pool attendant from Brazil had painted his body green as part of a sponsored run but somehow managed to use industrial strength paint intended for use on military submarines and missiles. When he discovered he was unable to remove it he spent the best part of two days taking numerous baths and showers and sleeping in a room lined with plastic bags.
To add to his misery, photographs that appeared online showing a woman claimed to be his girlfriend trying to scrub the paint off him with a toilet brush turned out to be his middle-aged mother. Fortunately for Enrique however the paint did eventually come off.
"A man in Brazil landed himself in deep trouble after the colour he painted his body with failed to come off -- he realised then that the paint was one used for painting ballistic missiles and nuclear submarines."
