Venetian Blinds

venetian blinds

These are the window coverings they use in Venice, apparently. As a child, I thought they were venutian blinds, as in the window coverings they use on Venus, because that’s what they called them on The Jetsons. I mean, I know that show was from the future, but also, it was very definitely taking place in the early 1960s, except for the season they made in the middle 1980s but nobody ever told me there was a twenty year gap so I never knew what to think. Anyhow, these don’t keep the sun out enough. I may be alone in this, but I would be fine if my house didn’t have any windows, so long as there was an elaborate system of peepholes. 1.8/5

Throne Room


This is a room where you sit in a probably uncomfortable chair and wear a probably uncomfortable hat to make yourself look important. It seems to me if you need all that to appear important you probably aren’t, and that the most important guy is probably doing something like, I don’t, let’s say, sitting on a couch in his underpants assigning a value from 0-5 to all the things in the universe and PS the couch is pretty comfortable and he doesn’t even like hats. 0.8/5



I sit on toilets a lot. I can’t imagine I’m the only one. I figure people sit on toilets at least as much as they sit in automobile seats. So why aren’t toilets comfortable? I can drive my car for longer that twenty minutes without my legs falling asleep. If my car was a toilet, I’d never get anywhere. Still, toilets are pretty much the only game in town for solid and liquid waste disposal. 1.9/5
