Our New Couch

This is our new couch. It is as soft as the clouds in heaven where it was made. While I was testing our couch in the store, two women came over and sat beside me. One of them said, "See - this one's too soft?" Too soft? What are you... Goldilocks? The only job a couch has is "being soft." A football helmet can be too soft, but not a couch. Calling a couch too soft is like saying a cookie is too delicious. How dare you insult its only reason for existing? Too soft? Do you know what I say to that? "Soft couch... welcome home."

What? Only one wife? Congrats, I am sure she deserves that soft couch. I must say I am stunned with your digital techniques. Can you teach me? It must be a woodoo of the Photoshop.

Shane, I must sit on your couch and watch your life-size TV. I've found that having such a comfortable couch takes the threat out of "You're sleeping on the couch!". My wife and I both laugh everytime she threatens me with that.

Happy Birthday, Lindy!

This is a very, very comical piece. I love your commentary. Drawn lovely.

Happy Couch Day, and Happy Birthday. It is a nice feeling to get a luxury couch, and you must relish it to the highest level possible. However, it appears from your drawing that you may be sitting on the couch nude, and I can't condone that. It's a leather couch, though, so I doubt you'll make the same mistake twice.

I agree completely (on both couches and cookies)!

Blogerts said...

Such a waste. You just bought such a great TV, and now you can't even see it. Your couch is nice, though.

I agree...

100%.

GhettoFab said...

I've never had a man-eating couch, though some day I hope to get one. That looks really comfortable. And who cares about seeing T.V. when you're THAT comfortable... and limber? I don't think I've touched my toes since 2nd Grade. Perhaps owning a man-eating couch will help me get to the point where I can touch them again. Hysterical sketch Shane.

Joe Fowler said...

I have two leather couches... can you deal with that everyone?

No?

HA! Didn't think so!

They are sooo soft. I love that when all the guys came to your house that the only one that didn't get to sit in your couches was you! We are so selfish.

Nicole said...

Cool!

RacheL said...

Haha, damn straight! I hate it when people have really posh sofas that are so uncomfortable. Squishy ones are the best! Nice illo :)

Tina Vaziri said...

That is hilarious and very well done! I wish I had a soft couch made of heavenly cloud pillows, but for some reason I decided to get a not so soft modern couch that looked cool. Now I don't like lounging in the living room.

xenos said...
