Bold Fashion Choices--Not To Scale?!?

You know...
There are about 75 comments I could make here, 74 1/2 of which are far too dirty to ever discuss in the context of an Archie comic.

Let's just say that, given the proportions displayed on that dress, it may increase Archie's interest in Geography, but it sure won't improve his grades...

From Veronica #27 (1993)

...she is spherical, like a globe; I could find out countries in her.

ANTIPHOLUS
In what part of her body stands Ireland?

DROMIO
Marry, in her buttocks: I found it out by the bogs.

ANTIPHOLUS
Where Scotland?

DROMIO
I found it by the barrenness; hard in the palm of the hand.

ANTIPHOLUS
Where France?

DROMIO
In her forehead; armed and reverted, making war against her heir.

ANTIPHOLUS
Where England?

DROMIO
I looked for the chalky cliffs, but I could find no whiteness in them; but I guess it stood in her chin, by the salt rheum that ran between France and it.

ANTIPHOLUS
Where Spain?

DROMIO
Faith, I saw it not; but I felt it hot in her breath.

ANTIPHOLUS
Where America, the Indies?

DROMIO
Oh, sir, upon her nose all o'er embellished with rubies, carbuncles, sapphires, declining their rich aspect to the hot breath of Spain; who sent whole armadoes of caracks to be ballast at her nose.

ANTIPHOLUS
Where stood Belgia, the Netherlands?

DROMIO
Oh, sir, I did not look so low.
