As goofy and wacky Jim may appear on-screen, he is totally a different person in real life. Instead of miserably complaining and asking the mighty Smiter to Smite him, Jim sees this world from a much wider perspective and has a nature of acceptance. He spills out his expressions and emotions in the form of painting and has a gigantic room meant just for painting.
The things he says are much more relatable and easily understood because of his way of expressing. He puts his comedic skills to use to even make someone understand his take on the meaning of life. Due to his light-hearted, friendly behaviour, people all around the world love his charisma and are eager to hear more of what he has to say.
