I've been seeing these cropping up in social media for a while but have only just got round to investigating what it actually is...

It's only the best thing that has ever been put on the internet.

As it describes itself, it is an "AI model generating images from any prompt" - so you enter some text in a box, hit Run and then enjoy the results...

This is amazing, thank you. When I'm writing short stories, something I'll do is shove a key phrase or concept into google image search and choose a selection of thumbnails, then build from those picture prompts. This generates bespoke picture prompts. It's fab.

“Nadine Dorries locked in a shipping container with 12 Jehovah's Witnesses” didn’t come out very well, lacking as it did:
  • a shipping container, and
  • even one Jehovah’s Witness
so I'll not bother to save it.

Bloody Stupid Johnson lying in front of a bulldozer

In some of those pictures, he's not lying....

Oh, hang on - it's Boris Johnson, of course he's lying.

Riding a bike through a city is like navigating the collective neural pathways of a vast global mind.

Karl Marx goes cycling?  I understand that he and Engels were keen hikers back in the day:

They don't seem to have done that to Liz Truss in Citoyen's example.

My initial thought was Wowbagger, but he's got too many clothes on.
