Would it be too much of me to demand that you run with one of these and make it a real little book?

TimT said...

You know, that's exactly what I had in mind. :)

Just added another chap, by the way, that I forgot to upload last night.

i think the greatest selling point is the use of MS Paint

nailpolishblues said...

Awesome. I want one!

I will personally finance part of the publishing cost. This is how much I am prepared the perfect spin on my favourite childhood reading. I identified closely with the square red man. Mr Happy? Mr Strong?

"how much I am prepared to publish and market to the reading public the perfect spin..."
BTW I must mention I laughed so hard reading this blueprint for Mr Men for the Modern World I think I shed a vital organ.

Mitzi G Burger said...

Shedded?

TimT said...

Methinks I would run into some interesting copyright issues. Maybe publish it on this blog in a week or two. I've done it before. (Google 'Spot gets neutered TimT' and see what comes up).

nailpolishblues said...

Oh dear, I did.

One of these days I will get around to reading your archives - assuming I can access them.

You are so wasted here. Funny, but wasted.

TimT said...

Actually, I'm going to have to clean up my archives some time. I had a bad habit of linking to images on other people's websites, and some of them switch the images on me when I'm not looking. My fault entirely, of course.

nailpolishblues said...

Is it worth the effort?

TimT said...

Oh yes, the main problems I have at the moment are internet slowness and my flickr accounts running out of space.

TimT said...

I must admit, I rather like Mr Omygodisthatagiraffeonyourhead, so if I do get around to writing this series, he'll be the first off the rank.

I like the giraffe one but the Che one makes me giggle more -so you're...? Agh, memory loss. Fucking work.

TimT said...

To make things just right, I probably should have put in a dying person in front of Mr Concerned just to drive the satire home, but that's too hard.

I may share some of the characteristics of most of these Mr Men, though giraffe man is definitely much smarter than me.

nailpolishblues said...

The modesty does not become you.

I've temporarily lost all sense of humour about dying people. Too close to home. I'm sure it will return in due course though.

Damn. I use though too much.

Mrs Mean said...

It's good to know there's not a man drought for the new generation but me?

I'm staying with Mr Mean.

The tried-and-true meanie ran with my heart a long time ago, even if the giraffe on the head man is strangely alluring...

Mr Mean has nothing to fear!
