There we were thinking the G8 summit would be all about civil war in Syria and the dire state of the global economy when in actual fact it's all just a massive ruse for a bit of a paint.

Obama and Cameron, two of the world's most powerful men armed themselves with a couple of paintbrushes and went on a jaunt to the Enniskillen Integrated Primary School, near to where the summit is being held.

It's rumoured Russian president Vladimir Putin was purposefully not invited as not only is he an easy-riding, tiger-rescuing, cowboy imitating general badass but he's also a dab hand with an easel and would have trounced the Western leaders with his ability to reproduce Monet's 'Water Lillies'.

That's not true... probably.
