Flat Earth Society "globe"

  [vote for,

What if Flat Earth Society members wanted to have a model of the world in their home? They couldn't use a globe in the usual sense. This is where my product comes in - a flat pancake- (or square-) shaped picture of the earth, on a stand for easy reference. Economy models would have the stand made out of cheap plastic. The deluxe model would have a carved wooden stand, oceans tinted light brown, and would have pictures of dragons around the edges.

(I called this a globe because I didn't know what else to call it. If anyone has any suggestions, please tell me.)

A MAP, sillybilly. Like the dragons though. You could make luxury models with toporaphical features built up to resemble the real thing (on a smaller scale of course).
A delux version could come complete with a square cherrywood stand like one of those posh music stands but with a flat top. I don't know what else to call it though. Flatstand, mapsupport? It could also be used to eat your dinner off or support a vase of flowers.

       All flat Earthers should be rounded up and driven off the worlds edge like Lemmings.   

       Was that a pun? "rounded up" hohoho

       There aren't REALLY any flat-earthers left, are there?

       There's gotta be something from a Terry Pratchett fan club

       Terry Pratchett fans would be flat-Discworlders.
