Alice’s Little Life Lesson

“If someone tells you that you’re being unladylike, fart on them.
Fart right on their head.
Then say, ‘Oh! Please pardon me,’ like a lady.”

For the crime of writing a note to herself on her own hand, someone I know was recently accused of being unladylike. This was my advice to her.

The more astute and dedicated subscribers may recognize this art as being a variant on my White Rabbit illustration from “Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland” by Lewis Carroll. The rabbit himself has dashed off from this version to make way for the text, and to tend the whims of the Queen of Hearts, (who may very well have been the one handing down judgments regarding minor matters of propriety.)

One might wonder who here is giving this advice, little Alice or her eldest sister. Ultimately, it can be whichever way suits you, the reader. In sooth, I intentionally left off any indication of attribution. Both possibilities tickle me.
