A slender man (left) reading a book complains to a second man (right) sitting opposite him, "Dangit sir I wish you would just blow your nose". The second man, who is very fat and has a very large, bulbous and ruddy nose that extends over the first man's book, replies, "Blow it your self it is as near you as it is me." They sit on upholstered chairs under a window in a small space, the large man's legs positioned between the thin man's two legs.
