Marauders of Gor

Good Show Sir Comments: Acting on a tip, we wasted an afternoon browsing the visual excesses of John Norman book covers over at “The Complete John Norman“. So many editions, all terrible in their own way. But one edition had a special style of terrible that makes us sit back, doff our hat, and say “Good show sir, good show, indeed”. Here is the full set, we could have selected any of them for today’s post so I present a random threesome.

1. Asshat of Gor

2. Gonads of Gor

3. The Rotters of Gor

From the GSS Slack Channel:

Tweet Jane: Where did you guys disappear to? I had to get the cleaning lady to let me in the locked offices.

GSS Admin: Sorry, I’ve been on August holiday. I’ve always promised myself a month in Bangkok.

Tweet Jane: August holiday? You haven’t returned from last August’s holiday. Your voice mail and mailbox are full.

GSS Admin: Gotta run. The cabana boy is bringing over the cocktails.

Tag Wizard: Sorry, but I’ve, uh, been detained. It’s all a misunderstanding. My solicitor will have it all straightened out in no time at all!

Tweet Jane: Well what about the 2000th Post? We were planning to a have a contest, and prizes, and a big month-long rollout.

Tag Wizard: Oh yeah. Slipped my mind. Go into the submission form and see what’s laying around. Something with nice pair of jubblies is always a hit. The password is on a post-it note somewhere on my desk.

Tweet Jane: And I’m taking all the petty cash. You haven’t paid me in two months.
