MEDELLIN, Colombia, A Colombian couple who moved into a sewer with their dog said they are living life "better than the president"
Miguel Restrepo, 62, told Colombian radio station La FM that he and his wife, Maria Garcia, have been living comfortably in a Medellin sewer for the past 22 years, Colombia Reports reported Thursday.
Restrepo said they are living "better than the president" in the "calm" and "carefree" setting. He said the sewer is outfitted with a kitchen, TV, bed, chair and fan.
All things being relative, he’s probably right.
Ed Norton: “Like we say in the sewer, time and tide wait for no man!”
The chair has a hole in the bottom?
Clearly an unused sewer
And every Saturday Night, he hosts his own floating crap game.
OK wise guy, now get this darn song OUT of my head!
American citizens are also living in sewers..Detroit,Chicago,East LA, NYC etc....Nothing to see here...move.on(.org)
Better than Detroit.
Wouldn’t want to live there during heavy rain. You’d really be in the s**t then..
Here’s more with a few photos, too:
His wife has some muscles.
I think he lives in it.
Now that they know he is here the Government that owns the sewer will either run him out or charge him rent.
I thought Medellin was a sewer.
Minimal landscaping costs—no lawn.
Wow, no Ninja Turtle jokes, no CHUD jokes? Are we geting lazy?
“... no CHUD jokes...”
I was going to ask about it but figured I would be the only freeper that knew such a terrible movie existed. Glad to see there is at least two of us!!
best line of that movie:
“gosh boss, this isn’t going to wash with the guys down at headquarters”.
