QC requests Twitter to take a photo with him in his wig/gown looking ‘Chirstmassy. People respond with some hilarious results, such as putting him in The Virgin Mary’s arms and flying with The Snowman

  • Twitter user @DavidMuttering posted a picture of the QC bewigged outside Court and requested that people make it ‘Christmassy.  
  • He was not disappointed by Twitter: Within hours, dozens upon dozens of holiday memes were posted to the site 
  • One Photoshopper put the barrister in the arms of the Virgin Mary, while another merged his head onto the body of a woman wearing a sexy Santa outfit
  • David has over 25,000 followers and responded to the photos by saying, ‘I now have to choose a new profile picture’ 

One QC tweeted a picture of himself in traditional court robes, asking people to help make the photo more Christmassy. The image was hilariously transformed. 

A senior barrister who clearly loved the holiday season was awarded memes. These included him being held in the arms of Virgin Mary replacing Bruce Willis’ in Die Hard, and then posing alongside East 17 on their cover to the perennial Christmas song, Stay Another Day.

QC David tweets under @DavidMuttering. He has over 25,000 followers. 

Then he wrote, “I’m about asking a very stupid query. Is it possible to make my profile picture Christmassy using photoshop? 

He said, probably with the appropriate amount of foresight: ‘I’m going regret this.

Muppets Christmas Carol: The bewigged QC is looking just right with a period cast.

But, the law whiz was soon rewarded with many festive images almost a whole day later – some of them better than others and some just a bit racier than what he would have liked. 

One PhotoShopper placed the barrister’s head on the body of an attractive woman dressed in Santa clothes, while another secured him at the top end of a festive tree.

He also appeared in The Muppets Christmas Carol with the traditional wig that looked right at home alongside the period cast.

A quick sketch certainly meets the brief

Just a few festive lights and a couple of baubles…and you’re done. The brief is met with a sketch.

I responded to the flood of memes by saying that people are simply brilliant. Twitter, thank you.

He added: ‘The response to this has been amazing – and I’m delighted that it’s cheered so many people. It’s now up to me to pick a new profile photo. 

One amused fan of the work suggested a calendar might be next, writing: ‘I think you need to do a calendar, The Twelve Daves of Christmas.’
