Oh my achin’ back.

I’ve never seen a chair that radiates discomfort as much as this one. What the…? This wagon wheel would have died a better death in a Maylands garden wall than in this abortion of a chair in Cannington.

    I put it to you, sir, that this is not a real wagon wheel, but some sort of faux wheel created so that ordinary people can enjoy the rare luxury of wagon wheel-based furniture.

    I also suggest that this is a good old fashioned Courtin’ Chair, designed so that a young woman and her beau can sit out on the porch of an evening, and if he tries to get too amourous, there’s a great big hub of wheel in the way. And it’s curved, so he can’t rest a glass of the devil’s brew on it.

    Of course given that it’s in Cannington, where getting too amourous and resting glasses of devil’s brew are the chief passtimes of the inhabitants, it’s not surprising that the chair still hasn’t been sold.

  4. “A 3D realisation of vomiting and dying”? It’s not often you get me laughing Tom, but that was wordsmithing at its best.

    It’s a bit like my old granny’s best crockery – meant to be seen, not to be used.

    I dunno, I reckon that’d give me the kind of lumbar support I need.

    Though I particularly like how the side supports appear to be made out of the rest of the cart.
