I confess.

I've wondered what it would be like to be Donald Trump. The oversized bank account. The even larger ego. And, as Elmer Fudd would say, a mansion and a yacht. And hair that looks like it recently escaped from a cage.

Well thanks to a former Coast resident, I can. (No a close friend didn't hit the Powerball.) But Jeffrey Smith did make the Get Trumped app, which, while it won't pad your bank balance with a gazillion extra digits, will afford you an opportunity to look like the hair apparent. You can find it in the Apple App Store by searching for Get Trumped. An Android version should show up soon on Google Play.

It's fairly easy to use. Take a few minutes to practice, then embarrass everyone in your photo album. Amateur tip: Make sure you have plenty of friends, you're bound to lose a few.

Smith blames the shenanigans on his dog, or specifically, a photo of his dog that he was goofing on.

"I added some hair like they were wearing a hairpiece and thought it was funny," Smith, who graduated from Ocean Springs High, said in a message to the Sun Herald. "I shared it with some friends, who went crazy over it and wanted to do the same with their pets. So I decided to create an app."

The app sells for 99 cents, a small price to pay for turning your friends, family and pets into brazillianaires. But good luck Trumping your boss. Glad mine has a since of humor. The only "punishment" he laid on me for Trumping him, then tweeting the photo, was this story.

Oh, and I had to Trump myself.
