So, it’s refreshing to read that Swiss artist and comedian Ursys Whrli shares our aesthetic, as shown in this blog piece on the importance of being compulsively tidy. A child’s sandpit is neatly rearranged, with its owner carefully consigned to the edge; alphabet soup components are arranged, well alphabetically; and the stars of the night sky are placed in perfectly formed rows.

By filling in a few questions about location, and whether your friends can be ‘co-stars’ (as this is all done from Facebook), you could soon see yourself immortalised on a film poster.
