AH... so the Terrans are LARPER's then! Click for slightly larger image

Frank Comments: It’s hard to tell which ones are the Martians in this picture. They all look like some of that forgotten science was pharmacological and hallucinogenic.  And if you get too close to that guy in front, he’ll help you understand what a bad trip is like.

    I bet the Martians had a name for those Terrans:
    Terrarists.

    (Ba-Da-Bum!)

    What’s that, Sean? “The gun is good, the penis is evil”? That’s quite enough of that, thank you.

    Front to back: Kirk Douglas (again) in ‘Spartacus’, Vincent Price in ‘Masque of the Red Death’, the green chick from the pilot of ‘Star Trek’ and a Mogwai.

    Mars having 600-day years, their New Year’s Day Parade is twice as dumb. And the atmosphere’s too thin for inflatable Sesame Street characters.

    The forgotten science of…interpretive dahnssss!

  7. Tom Noir Says:

    I would think it would be quite easy to stand against forgotten science.

    Martians: We had horrible death rays… but we forgot our chargers!

    Terrans: Umm…

    Martians: Our vast fleets of space dreadnoughts would crush you… if we remembered where we parked them!

    Terrans: Erm…

    Martians: Has anyone seen our Naga Brain? Once we find it we will totally enslave your armies with our irresistible Thought Control Arrays!

    Terrans: *shoots Martians*

    “Here we come
    Walkin’ down the street
    We get the funniest looks from
    Everyone we meet

    Hey, hey we’re The Terrans …”

    “Schhhh! Be veeeewy qwuiwet – wewe hunting tewwans.”

    An alien from ‘It Came From Outer Space’ is lurking in the background. Those boys just can’t pass a planet w/o crashing into it.

    @Phil – Fixed now! :) You can share your comments once again!

    And the award for most manic stare goes to! The man in the pink leather male skirt!

    My first thought was, “What, no sheeping?” Then I thought, “Why bother, really.”

    @A.R.Ynvge—pun of the day award

    @Bibliomancer—pop parody lyric of the day award

    @Jeff Vader—cartoon allusion of the day award

    @THX 1138—another blurb where it’s a good thing they remembered to include the word “against.”

    How can I have missed, next to Pepto-Bismol-Woman, the delegate from Alpha Centauri coming to visit his/her chums the Ice Warriors on their home turf.

    They covered their bases: A scantly-clad lady, a burkha lady, an alien lady and a dude-dressed-like lady.

  15. Stevie T Says:

    Is that Don Quixote in the background? And what is he riding???

  16. Anti-Sceptic Says:

    Looks like a really odd conga line.

  17. Rev Says:

    The curse of the coming of the Terrans!

    Guy with Axe: “I’ll just crouch like this so nobody notices what I did…for the 3rd time this morning”

    Somebody get that poor man a cushion! And a new skirt.

  18. B. Chiclitz Says:

    @Rev—the look in the eyes of burkha lady indeed supports your reading.
