Yes another year has passed and we have been through a lot. There’s been a overall disappointing 1000th Good Show Sir post, and a few cat people… oh and some real world stuff but who cares about that! I am of course kidding about our special 1000th post, it was excellent, well thought through and certainly wasn’t rushed. I do want to say a special thanks to the Tag Wizard, he’s been a real help over the past year! His skills are excellent and highly sought after so please continue to suggest your own tags to give him more work!

Once again no one has topped the ever strong I Sing the Body Electric, even with Chinese Good Show Sir making web imps to screw around with our delicate voting system.

2014 brings our 5 year anniversary and hopefully we’ll have something fun and actually well thought through! No promises though!

So here are some excellent covers to sum up the year! We’ll be back on Monday 6th Jan 2014 posting as normal, so that’s whenever we can be bothered!

This years top rated cover:

Look at me... you think I'd turn down an aardvark?Click for original post

The second top rated cover:

Don could only panic as he realised a normal woman had joined his odd parade! lsdjf;sp Click for original post

The Tag Wizard’s pick of the year:

Well... whatever you do don't take me to the butt lines!Click for original post

And the cover that of spawned the infamous, “The Comments that Came to Sarnath,” incident!

Anyone got more words that rhyme with doom? Good luck!Click for original post

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.
