Penn State Fun With DALL-E Mini

This is peak offseason content.

I don’t know about you, but I’m hip with the world wide web. The latest fun trend? This website called DALL-E mini. The premise is simple: you can type in anything and an AI model will generate an image from scratch. You likely have two responses to that:

  1. That’s pretty cool.
  2. That’s pretty stupid.

Well, folks, “pretty cool” and “pretty stupid” is the avenue I live on. I played around with the DALL-E model and gave it a Penn State twist, using the likes of James Franklin, the Nittany Lion, and of course Joe Paterno. You’ll see below that a lot of these images are *hit-or-miss, but goodness gracious is Joseph Vincent Paterno perfect for this mechanism.

*Yes, this is the stupidest thing I’ve ever written for this site.

JAMES FRANKLIN

LOOKING AT A CLOCK

Even with these big clocks, will he know when to take a timeout?
