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.)

||would you like a mercator projection "flattened globe" or standard? and when i say "flattened globe" i mean map.
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.
