Good Show Sir Comments: “Like my new Snake Love Seat? I bought it at Furniture Village. Do you think it’s too gaudy?”

Far, far, worse.Interesting, but I would still read it in public.Middlng: Neither awful nor awfully goodWould not like to be seen reading that!Awful... just awful...That belongs in a gold-lame picture frame!Gah... my eyes are burning! Feels so good!Good Show Sir! (Average: 8.06 out of 10)

    @TW: I draw your attention to the cat person, or possibly cat-masked luchador, beneath yonder snake.

  3. Tag Wizard Says:

    @DSWBT – I pondered long and hard on that fellow and couldn’t decide if he was more cat person or bear person and decided to go with strange creature instead.

  4. THX 1138 Says:

    Because Lord Cedric would have sounded ridiculous.

  5. A.R.Yngve Says:

    That miniature city is adorable! Is it HO scale or 1:72?

  6. Bibliomancer Says:

    She’s got calves the size of cantaloupes
    and cantaloupes the size of calves.

  7. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    Needs a better blurb…

    ‘THE CORONATION STREET EPISODE YOU NEVER IMAGINED!’

  8. B. Chiclitz Says:

    @THX 1138—I thought it was “Lord Frederic,” of Hollywood.

  9. B. Chiclitz Says:

    @B’Mancer—”cantaloupes the size of calves.” I assume you mean four-legged, bovine calves—an udderly brilliant post.

    Lord Tedric….really can’t say what he’s doing here. Interpretive dancing?

  11. Bibliomancer Says:

    @B.Chiclitz – Of course you can see her calves. She’s wearing a very re-veal-ing outfit.

  12. Yoss Says:

    I think this composition demonstrates artistic integrity. Frowny Redcape there has two swords. TWO!!!!! Imagine how tempting it would be to lovingly illustrate both swords and increase the awesomeness quotient by an estimated 7%. However, emphasis on the second sword would have pulled attention to the lower right — away from the true focal point in the upper left quadrant. (Mysteriously close to the semi-clad bosoms.)

  13. B. Chiclitz Says:

    @B’Mancer—your posts are always moo-sic to my ears!

  14. Anna T. Says:

    Judging by the looks the impractically-dressed damsel and the floating head are exchanging, they may just be in collusion for some reason – possibly to destroy the muscle-bound hero, get the head a new body and get the damsel a proper bra.

  15. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    Question: does the presence of an anaconda that wants some imply that she got buns, hun?

  16. MisterBob Says:

    Perhaps this is Channel Four’s plan for Sir Alun’s the Apprentice ?

  17. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    ‘Who’s responsible for this abomination of a cover?’

    ‘Number one, Lord Tedric. Number two, Gordon Eklund. Number three, E.E. “Doc” Smith…’

  18. JRDelirio Says:

    ^ Well, to be fair, Doc was long dead when they decided to make a “new series” based on something he had written 20 years before.

  19. Bibliomancer Says:

    @DSWBT – None of the above.

    Number Four – Gray Morrow

  20. Anti-Sceptic Says:

    Is this the new Fantastic Four? Doctor Doom seems unimpressed in the background.

  21. A.R.Yngve Says:

    To be fair, the cover does feature BOTH male and female cleavage.
