I am only posting to showcase my new icon! It’s a crying turnip, a Linley Sambourne illustration from the Isle of Tomtoddies scene in Charles Kingsley’s The Water-Babies. The Tomtoddies (“all heads and no bodies”) are filled with water — useless information they store up to appease the Examiner-of-all-Examiners. But they cram too much useless information into their wee turnip heads, and they burst.
I didn’t completely understand this extremely strange episode in Kingsley’s story until I read about the Revised Code of 1862!
I figure a crying root vegetable will be an apt icon for those posts in which carrots is blue.
