    I find it funny that the answer to the proposal was also spray painted next to the original question.

    intelligence isn't really a prized thing in Florida

    There's a lack of intelligence throughout the world. Florida certainly does not have that market cornered.
  6. I am from Florida. ColdCat is correct.

    Nothing says "I Love You" quite like vandalism of private property.

    What's with this spray painting your proposal fad? A friend of mine recently did that with his girl. He said it was because he had chickened out of proposing to her on a couple of other occasions when he had planned to and wanted to do the spray paint thing to avoid that. But I've recently heard of others doing it besides him and this goof ball. Has this always been done? Is it relatively new? What's the deal?

    Spraypainting a proposal on a house means never having to say you're sorry.

    Anyone else have problems with the headline? It wasn't the wrong house. They spray painted the house they meant to. It just wasn't theirs. I read the headline and thought it was a story about some dumb guy who spray painted the neighbors house by mistake.

    I agree.

    The fact the reply was painted in the exact color as the proposal signals it was done at the same time, which means the woman was there, too. Maybe they got drunk, spray painted both and then couldn't get in front door and tried to ram the garage.

    I do disagree with the homeowner, though. I think Allison and the dude were made for each other.

    In the story, also didn't like the use of the exclamation points, or putting "spray" in quotes in the lede. Why were those necessary?
