    nothing like insurance advertisements to make the living room/den/porch/bedroom/garage/basement/bungalow cozy…

    but seriously though: they forgot the step where you drill a small hole in the seat to accommodate a hypodermic needle that supplies the sitter with a tetanus booster each time they take a load off.

    that all being said, i’m pretty inspired. i’ve got an idea for a chair made of old broken glass bottles. time to fire up the glue gun…
