I’ve envied Melissa’s fainting couch for long enough

So I went image hunting and photoshopping.

For those who don’t frequent Shakesville, Melissa McEwan (aka Shakespeare’s Sister) occasionally presents certain commenters with an image of a fainting-couch, or uses it to illustrate a post involving a moral panic amongst the pearlclutching set.

I could have just copied her image (I’m sure she would give permission if asked by a fellow progblogger) but I decided to do my own.

On my image hunt, I also found this, appropriately only as a tiny thumbnail. I hereby present the smallest fainting-couch in the world, just waiting for the most delicatest of sensibilities:

Both images are up on my Flickr account, just link to them as needed using Flickr’s guidelines (click on them to go to Flickr). Go forth and mock, mates.

    LOL!
    That. Is. Awesome.
    You’ve truly captured the spirit of the fainting couch. 😉

  9. I’m brand new here, but I had to comment to say that this is absolutely hilarious. It made my procrastination of final paper writing so much more worth it.
