#Trumpjacking: A Users Guide

Donald Trump posts something self-aggrandising on Twitter.

Photoshop that tweet in as juvenile a manner you like until he looks as bovine as his politics.

If you want to illustrate your inflammatory article about how seagulls are terrorising innocent holidaymakers on British beaches, Getty have helpfully put together a package of photographs for you to do so.

Equally, you can make a storyboard for a classic (bloody awful) creature feature called Gullnado. It’s more or less the same thing, of course, but at least with the latter you don’t have to play down the role that people’s inability to to deal with their food waste has on their behaviour.

You can make a plot point of it.

This installation at the British Museum has given me an idea for EURO 2016.

By suspending the referee above the pitch in some sort of harnessy thing, we’d not only be allowing him a bird’s eye view of every single incident (resulting in better officiating), but the opportunities for mayhem and disaster would be increased ten fold.

We could even offer five minutes in charge of the referee’s harness controls as some sort of ITV prize.

Everyone’s a winner!
