It's a Stovepipe Sponge! Me, I'm from Melbourne.
@laurel Appropriate! And yes, also 'appropriated' ;-)
'Vacuuming? What, do you experience an accumulation of detritus on your floor surfaces over time, or something?'
'Vacuuming? Do you own a particularly fluffy house pet?'

I read about this surgery on another site and one of the photos they had showed a woman whose 'before' smile reminded me of Kate Winslet's. Don't despair, those with naturally-turned-down-at-the-corners mouths. (I mean, I'm not telling you to 'smile', but the naturally-turned-down-at-the-corners mouth can be quite attractive).

Who need a new avatar? Some of these would be great. I would grab one except I am already a sponge with a face.
@iceberg Another graphic designer here. This reminds me of a conversation my colleagues had once:

Colleague 2 (some time later): I'm still trying to work out how you could be saving the world with InDesign.
Everyone wants to think their profession is important and world-changing. Or, they themselves are important and world-changing. But the power of a fancy sign or a hard-hitting poster has its limits. These designers would be better off campaigning for more affordable healthcare, or crisis accommodation, or mental health services. Seriously, this guy is on the streets because he couldn't afford to have a stroke!
