Photo Meme

via thihyrne and grrlpup, a photo meme:
1. Go to the fourth folder on your computer where you store your pictures.
2. Pick the fourth picture in that folder.
3. Explain the picture.
4. Tag four people to do the same Hey, feel free if the mood strikes you.

The photo is a visual pun, satirizing the complacency of nineteenth-century Britain concerning slavery and imperialism, as depicted in Jane Austen's "Mansfield Park." Note the droll inversion of meaning if the standing figure is assumed to be Sir Thomas Bertram or the novel's protagonist, Fanny Price. Plus, it's also an amusing picture of action figures and a cat.
