Yellow Flower Dress from the Far Side

I was reading an old Far Side book the other day and I swear, half the women wear this dress. So I drew it, because I think it’s funny. (And “I think it’s funny” is always more than adequate justification for paperdolling. Yeah, I do it for the lulz.)

Now that I’m trained in teaching English as a second language, I often read things with an eye to explaining them to a non native speaker, or using them in a lesson. The Far Side fails those tests, 90% of the time, or at least it’d be really darn complicated… It’s amazing the amount of cultural background that goes into just a single one. I’d love to use them in a larger lesson plan, though…
