Clever how the cage breaks out of the frame at the top….. sort of..
Hi-diddly-ho, neighborino! The first new Flanders novel in years!
At first glance I thought she was lifting up the hem of her skirt for that thing.
“Oh yeah, show a little leg, Native American Wonder Woman! I’ve been locked in this cage a long time.”
If a catman is in a birdcage, and the birdcage isn’t made of iron, is it still ironic?
@THX, I’m still struggling to breath laughing at the idea of a Flanders novel. Hey Homer, would you and Marge care to come over for a friendly game of Empire?
As “flandry” is in quotes, I assume it’s a euphemism. As in:
How was the book?
It was a bit, you know, “flandry”.
Who here is not wondering at the cover of the book seen on the right with the title “Hoka! Hoka! Hoka!”?
Oh and as for this one, is she saying, to pinch from Airplane!
“I take my coffee like I take my catmen: black.”
@Smith: This does it.
(Were the Hoka books not deliberate comedy, I’d probably submit the cover of its previous printing Earthman’s Burden hereabouts.)
Or, er, not. Try again.
Her name’s Diana and she looks like Wonder Woman…Funny that. And what does “Flandry” mean and why is it in quotes?
If they can source regular-sized ‘E’s for ‘GAME’ why can’t they for ‘EMPIRE’? Did the supply of regular-sized dry up, and they had to make do with mega?
@Adam: I believe that the mighty mighty E’s are intended to be representative of Doric columns, and therefore indicative of a mighty EmpirE like RomE or GreecE.
In the name of Hera, dance in my 60’s club and do it in a cage hanging on nothing!
The cage is hanging from the I in Empire.
“The first new Flandry novel in years!”
Do I detect a note of resentment from the copy editor…?
Is Diana as round heeled as her father?
I thot I saw a puddy tat! …*waggles eyebrows*…
‘So now tell me what you want, what you really really want.’
‘Well I’ll tell you what I want, what I really really want…is to be LET OUT OF THIS BLOODY CAGE!’
