SOUTHEND, England, May 22 (UPI) -- A British man said he painted his honeymooning brother's house pink with white spots in revenge for a similar prank six years ago.

Russell O'Rourke, 35, said his painted the Southend, England, house while his brother, Steve, 32, and his bride, Hayley, 31, were on their two-week honeymoon on the Greek island of Rhodes, The Mirror reported Wednesday.

Russell said Steve built a 4-foot-high brick wall across his driveway while Russell was on his own honeymoon six years ago.

"What you reap is what you sow," Russell said. "The neighbors were coming out asking what I was doing painting their house. I reckon there were hundreds of people stopping and taking pictures. Even the police were slowing down to take a look."

The brothers said they are now planning to bury the hatchet and team up to prank their older brother, David, who is scheduled to get married next year.

"People need to watch this space to see what happens to his house next year," Russell said.
