Found this image that pretty much sums up how I felt last week with my swollen jaw...even if it was barely noticeable, as some said, I still felt like I should put a bag over my head before doing out in public.

This is from an 1847 issue of the British humor magazine Punch, and is brutally spoofing 19th century tastes for freak shows and for ogling the monstrous.

The British Library has a gallery of images from Victorian freak shows on their site; check 'em out here.
