Jim'll Paint It - Anthony Worral Thompson
Dear Jim, Please paint me Anthony Worrall Thompson making an absolutely pathetic attempt at shoplifting in Pets at Home. He’s trying to conceal a fishtank under his jumper, a pair of love birds in his Nike bum-bag and there are gerbils spilling out of his pockets. His poorly thought through disguise consists only of a beard fashioned from orange coloured hamster bedding. His expression should reflect a sense of exasperation at his own stupidity as he realises that he already had a real beard of the exact same colour to begin with.
“You name it, I’ll paint it. On paint”.
That’s the strapline to the Jim’ll Paint It tumblr blog, the one thing that’s keeping this tired Tech Digest hack chuckling through to the weekend. It’s bloody amazing.
It’s a simple premise – come up with as mad an idea for a picture as you can, and Jim’ll turn it into a top-notch, often hilarious Microsoft Paint picture.
“I am here to make your wildest dreams a reality using nothing but Microsoft Paint (no tablets, no touch ups),” says Jim.
“Ask me to paint anything you wish and I will try no matter how specific or surreal your demands. While there aren’t enough hours in the day to physically paint every suggestion I will consider them all. Bonus points for originality and humour. Use your imagination!”
