"This is not the first ball of paint I've made. In the 60's when I was in high school, I was on the varsity high school baseball team. My summer vacation was spent working at a local paint store. It all started when a friend (Oscar Sparkman) and I were throwing a baseball in the paint shop when one of us missed the ball. Of course it knocked over a gallon of paint, needless to say the ball was covered. We cleaned up the paint up from the floor but left the ball as it was, with paint on it. I set it on top an old table, and the next day I went to get it I was sparked with the idea."
This paint ball is based on the same principle as the 'Grolly Pole' constructed by submariners at sea. The Grolly Pole consisted of a piece of string/rope hanging from the deckhead on the boat. Anyone with a good bogey (grolly) up their nose was invited to pick it and stick it the rope. Amazing how thick and long the pole could get on extended trips. Sad or bored or both?
I began painting my sac when i was trying to impress a girlfreind in the early 80,s. After a number of coats i had to start barrowing my sac around the garrison which attracted the attention of the then RSM **x of the Coldstreams. He invited me to his intray and summilarily bollocked me to within an inch of my life. I spent the last 3 years of my service removing the paint. What a load of old bolls effy I hear you say. Its true man. Ok Ok Ive had too much Herforder Pi ss.
