"I was interested in football and history at school, and studied art and design at Aston University. Birmingham has 35 miles of canals, which intrigued me because my dad was born on a canal boat."

How is that dull? Most people are born in hospitals. What an interesting tale to tell! I call shenanigans.

This guy actual is full of surprises, twice my age and a fan of trance.

I'd buy this guy a beer when I cross the pond.

The sort of dull we should all aspire to.

Three ex-wives? The guy can't be that dull.

Just came in to say, dull people don't get married three times.

Unless by "dull," he means "unfathomably stupid."

If I could be so dull.

Authoring numerous internationally published satirical titles, being featured for it on prime-time television in multiple countries, and recognised by other significant artists, isn't dull.

This guy isn't dull.  He's got a dry sense of humor, runs a business, apparently has a thing for transportation infrastructure, and apparently is a decent photographer -- which is a kind of art.

He just seems to delight in the things a lot of people just treat as background noise, but which are in reality integral parts of life (e.g. the roundabouts).  That's not dull, it's just not flashy and in your face.

If this is dull, then I'm dull too because I think this dude's pretty awesome!

My three ex-wives all found me dull; not in the bedroom


My man is packing. He ain't puttin' them to sleep with those calendars.

A calendar of roundabouts, that is pretty funny and even funnier it caught on and demand for it went through the roof.

Eh.  When I was young, to meet the ladies I masqueraded a bit as more of a bad-boy than I actually was.  I didn't drink, didn't do drugs, and had a boring-ish if reasonably paying steady 9-5 job.  I didn't marry until quite a bit later but I certainly had opportunity, at least a couple of the ladies probably would've said yes, within the period where I was still enigmatic and therefore interesting out of mysteriousness.

So I can see a fairly dull person managing to date and even marry, only for more thorough getting to know the person leading to the realization of dullness and the relationship falling apart.

If you can tell a story with one sentence it's not really a story, it's also not his story

It's a weird flex. Being able to run a print shop is interesting. Being willing to make an odd calendar for a whim is humorous, having it go viral is interesting. Taking the mundane and turning it into wall hanging disposable art is farking Andy Warhol territory. He's a relatively sober business owner who smiles, makes people happy.

The dullest man in Britain works for MI6. He's a spy. You never heard of him.
