Do you love the smell of wet paint? Maybe you even get a kick out of watching it dry?
Well now you can, as we’re launching the first ever World Watching Paint Dry Championships.
We’ve all heard the phrase, ‘I’d rather watch paint dry’ and so we have decided the time has come to give people the chance to do so, for as long as they can bear.
After so many sporting disappointments we’re keen to invent a sport which England can excel at and watching paint dry could be just the thing. Let’s be honest, with England’s recent performances on the football and rugby pitches most of us would prefer to watch paint dry anyway.
Hopefuls must send in a picture of themselves watching paint dry and state the longest time they’ve managed to stare at a wall of drying paint without looking away. We also want to know your favourite paint colour and why.
Entrants don’t need to be physically fit or participate in a vigorous training regime, what’s more important is mental strength, concentration and endurance. Previous paint watching experience isn’t essential, but a bit of practice might help prepare you for the mammoth task ahead.
Shortlisted entrants will be invited to attend a grand final in front of the world's media at a location in central England. The final showdown will see half a dozen international paint watchers gathering to fight it out for the World title.
The competition will be a real test of both endurance and mental strength, with the lucky winner walking away with an exciting prize and the coveted title of World Paint Watching Champion.
