In a skit from Thursday night's episode of Portlandia, Carrie Brownstein and Fred Armisen finally turn their gaze on the tiny home. It's a cautionary tale for any Americans interested in putting down a deposit on a dwelling small enough to be mistaken for a Wendy House.
It's all here: A toilet that doubles as a home office, a fold-up kitty litter box, earnest young strivers forced to use their own bodies as tables. But it's the last one that truly hits home; the real victims of micro-living movement are regular American citizens, romanced by home blogs (*cough*) into thinking "I could do that."
