A Percy Post: The Green-Eyed Monster

I have a firm conviction that this is the image Shakespeare had in his mind when he wrote of the green-eyed monster:

How could Iago have been thinking of anything but this Percy Beast when he said:

O, beware, my lord, of jealousy;
It is the green-eyed monster which doth mock
The meat it feeds on.

I know I am most envious of those who have a puppy to curl up with tonight; monster or not.
