Things Could Be Worse by Benjamin Dewey
You may have fallen off a moving boxcar and your spouse ran away with your dog (to be together), but look, the calamitous nature of life dictates that things could always be worse. And they could!

If by some chance you have befallen any of these unfortunate fates, then I apologize: things probably are pretty bad for you. Follow some similar near-catastrophic potentialities at Benjamin’s tumblr, or buy prints at etsy so you can plaster on your wall the reminder that hey, you’re not a zombie… yet.

Stu: ‘noun, see Karl Pilkinton’. ‘Nuff said methinks.
