A Nice Bit Of Paul For Your Wall
Comments left by readers of websites can be curious things. Sometimes, they’re a dreary procession of ill-advised, pig-ignorant semi-formed thoughts spewed out by reprobates who choose to take out their frustrations on their keyboards because the real world has hit back at them one time too many.
Occasionally though, they can illuminate our lives with beams of wry humour, especially when a collective entity gets a subject between its teeth and refuses to let it go, like a rabid dog with a cuddly toy clenched between its jaws.
One such example is here – the comments left by Amazon ‘customers’ who have supposedly shelled out £48.93 for a 20 inch canvas print of irksome TV celebrity and brother of Jonathan, the one and only Paul Ross.
The praise is fulsome and near constant. As we write this, there are 51 comments, but the list is growing longer by the hour. Plump up a cushion and spend a few moments reading through them all. Better still, join in and add your own. Some of our favourites follow after the jump...
“If you love life like I do, then you really need one of these. I can't imagine being without it now.”
“Paul Ross knows, but he isn't telling - he wants us to find out for ourselves. Look into his eyes.”
“I received mine through my wondrously large letterbox this very morning, and it made me physically and emotionally sick. My whole family began weeping in unison and then my youngest, Rufus, claimed he could fly and set off onto the pavement via the 19th floor balcony. You don't get that sort of reaction to a George Foreman grill, I can tell you.”
“Since Da Vinci painted the Mona Lisa has any smile been more enigmatic than this?”
“This is a picture of rare power - surely as you read this you are reaching for your credit card.”
“I had only just said to my husband the previous night as we were worming the dog that I wished I could have a canvas print of Paul Ross sitting in a wicker chair, fingers entwined, possibly contemplating a second pie.”
“You can control Paul's expressions in the photoscreen by manipulating the buttons on your mobile telephone.”
