Needlepoint Rhetoric

This strikes Harrogate, first of all, as a manifestly true statement that this "craftster" artist has now immortalized, fittingly, onto a bedroom pillow.

Kenneth Burke would likely have no objections to it.

A friend, Harrogate will not reveal which one, just revealed the existence of this image, which by the way emblemizes a wondrous validation of the truth that ye must never assume things about a given Rhetorical Situation. Now and forevermore, we may associate Needlepointing and Orgies.

As someone who studies visual rhetoric, I must say the use of traditional methods to produce a thought provoking piece quite clever.
