Does Not Illustrate: Awful Wedded Life get usage counts

It's a woman adjusting a man's tie before he goes to work or something. Nothing suggests that either one would kill the other given the chance or anything.

The fact that it's linked to a British sitcom is supposed to be enough context.
Becky: Who are you? The Mysterious Stranger: An angel.
Huck: What's your name? The Mysterious Stranger: Satan.

Keep Until Better Image Suggested on the basis that she comes off as fussy to me and he has a long-suffering expression. There are definitely better images out there, though.
It's also on Henpecked Husband, where I think it fits much better.

The pic's been on Henpecked Husband for a long time...dunno about how long it's been here, but I agree that it fits the former trope a lot better. Pulling.

I've mentioned in past threads that I'm sick of text-heavy images, but as soon as I saw this, I immediately thought of The Lockhorns:

[1]

[2]

[3]

[4]

[5]

[6]

[7]

[8]

In uffish thought
3 > 8 > 6 = 7 > others. Are those all single-panel, though?

serial tweaker, sorry
[up] Yes, The Lockhorns is a one-panel comic. We can't use any of them.

please don't capitalize my handle. I just don't like it.
Not to mention its very format is Just a Face and a Caption. If copyright wasn't a concern, 3 would work for The Lockhorns itself, and I could be talked into 7, but the rest all suck.

Would there be copywright issues for an image of a caketopper? If not, look what I found.

What about that popular print for T-shirts that says "Game Over"?

[up] Possibly, but I think things that are made for mass-market distribution are alright for us to use.

Yeah, since it was made to be publicly displayed on a T-Shirt, this should be perfectly fine fair use.

The T-shirt works well enough for me. One or two more ayes and we can run with it.

Here's a couple more verisons of the same shirt print:

I ran with the version on the red T-shirt; it's up and tagged. Locking up.
The system doesn't know you right now, so no post button for you.
You need to Get Known to get one of those.
