       So does the couch have it's own programmable remote, or do the buttons operate a lift that lifts the cushions and exposes the netherworld below the cushion for all to see?

       There is an artist who does concept pieces like this - beds with computer screens set into the pillows, and so on. No chance of me remembering her name, tho.

       I would think the button(s) would have to be located in a place where you could only press them when NOT seated or else the hydraulics would have to be pretty sustantial to lift the average couch potato along with the offending cushion(s). That also brings up the issue of how high the hydraulics would lift because you would have to remain close enough to reach the newly-exposed remote yet have enough clearance to see.   

       Would transparent (see-through) cushions work? Or would the constant sight of the furniture netherworld be too distracting?   

       thumb - is the vioila a kind of oily string instrument?

       That's the vioilia

       If you cover it in ivy is it an ivioilia?

       and if you put bees and ants all over it, it becomes a hivioiliant.

       Aw, Christ! Has it really come to this?   

       Hell, if you've got buttons mounted to the side of the couch, just program them to work the damned tv and never lose it again.
