The Middle Way

With both bustles and TVs, bigger is better until it becomes ostentatious.

Everybody wants a nice big TV to watch a movie or invite friends over for the game. And everybody wants an ample, voluptuous bustle to emphasize their hindquarters. But here's the thing: Go too big with either and it starts to seem like you're just showing off.

This Hisense 40" LCD TV is just right. Its 1080p full-HD screen is large enough to totally absorb you, but not so large that the ladies of the salon will titter over your showiness. To put it in a perspective you may better understand, this 40" TV is roughly equivalent to an early-era (1869-1876) English bustle: Noticeable, worthy of praise, but not outré.

Listen, everybody went through a phase where it was all about getting the biggest bustle on the market, putting as much bump in your petticoats as possible, and catching the gaze of the most eligible bachelors at the ball. But you live and learn, and it turns out that those bachelors weren't interested in you for matrimonial reasons - la, the thought! Going with a medium-sized crinoline turned out to be a more prudent course by far. You still get noticed, but for the right reasons.

Just so, while you might have sprung for a 60" TV back in the heady days of youth, now you understand that the 2 million pixels and 50,000:1 contrast ratio of this 40-incher are more than sufficient. Plus, it's a total steal at this price, so you'll have plenty of leftover cash to keep up on the latest Parisian bustle styles.
