I don't see what's so funny.

The paint's gone, yes?

Since this is Wisconsin, perhaps instead of smoking on the roof, he should be drinking.  We need to get back to Number One!

My next door neighbor did the exact same thing about 20 years ago.

Old wood frame farm house that had newspapers in the walls for insulation.

You're supposed to use the torch to soften the paint, then scrape it.  Not burn it off like it's pinfeathers on a chicken.

Sounds like something my old neighbors would have done.

Actually pretty common.  Used to use one of these all the time to soften up the paint.

Last year the same guy set 17 bug bombs in his house to get rid of roaches.

You'd think he would have learned about safety.

I once used a heat gun to loosen some paint on the bathroom wall, but forgot to take it back out to the garage.  I thought it turned out alright, and the missus looked great in her new wig.

I hope no Brats were injured.

To his credit, only the ballsiest of ballsy wields a torch alone.

Saves on going to the salon, doesn't it?
