New picture needed?: Creator Provincialism get usage counts

[1]

This picture is pretty vague, the caption doesn't help either. There's a small conversation in the discussion page wondering just what the hell it's supposed to be depicting.

This is still a signature.

I see the Awesomeness.
Agreed, image pulled. Previous:||

The main discussion says that the Eiffel Tower is the only visible landmark, so the creator is French.

What.

The Eiffel tower is barely visible in that picture. We need a different one.

How about this famous New Yorker cover illustrating New York provincialism?

Might not scale well to our image size, though.

It scales ok. Some of the tags are hard to read, but the proportions still make it pretty clear — (remember, the forum is limited to 300 pixels wide, the wiki will go to 330.)

One New York writer's view of America.
'He strutted across the bedroom, his hard manhood pointing the way' sounds like he owns a badly named seeing-eye dog. 'Sit, Hard Manhood!

I thought the forum went to 350? (I may have made a few images a little too big....)

I thought page images could go to 350. Maybe I just misremembered.

The forum software automatically squishs it to 300 — the caption box is the size the picture can be on a wiki page.

The New Yorker cover is already the page image for Fly Over Country.

I like the Newyorker pic better. Wonderella might make a good quote though.

^^That's a bit too reliant on text. Would make a good quote though.

The New Yorker image is better for this trope than for Flyover Country. That one is "there's nothing important between New York and Los Angeles".
'He strutted across the bedroom, his hard manhood pointing the way' sounds like he owns a badly named seeing-eye dog. 'Sit, Hard Manhood!
^It also notably doesn't depict LA at all.

Perhaps this image for Flyover Country?

There's one I've been looking for that would be perfect for Flyover Country. The AAA map still shows too many highways and such in the center of the country

Also, Flyover Country doesn't say "there's nothing there" so much as "there's nothing important there." You do have to spend time flying over it, after all.

If we're using the Wonderella image, we'll need a new image for Wonderella's page.

I think it's too America-bashing (and more importantly, rather witless America-bashing), but on top of that, I doubt it'd be legible at a 330 pixel width.
