Nice pun! I like the little noose too. I think the B&W helps the drama here is this photo. Cool photo. -BB

Remarks: What I admire most is the intricate craftsmanship and material selection invested in the knot. This, to me, is more humourous than any concept. The bent nail (among the spectators), while an effective variation, also works well as a kind of delayed pointe. The well-tempered lighting and the subtractive aesthetics provide an ideal context for the intended pun. Unfortunately, to my sense, the title is too mild and explanatory to, still, charge the image further. While not earth-moving, Hangnail (one word), without the Just as would be better, IMO.
