May 01

It’s the awesome month of May! Which can only mean even more honourable mentions!

Found these beauties in a charity shop the other day. Would you read them on a bus? Or try to complete a shiny unicorn puzzle on a bus? I know I would… just for the attention!

Have a great long weekend if you get it! Otherwise, just have a great weekend!

    “Whats worse, no head or a rose head?” Not sure but openly grabbing your partners behind while dancing is surely déclassé.

    Oh and just to gain the “sad pervert” achievement? The ‘unsheeped’ image for Sayonaya is still sheeped (just checked for completeness, honest 🙂 ).

  2. THX 1138 Says:

    1: I’ve heard of a toothbrush moustache but this is ridi… yeah.

    2: Lambada: The Horticultural Dance.

    3: I’ll reserve judgement till I can see it unsheeped.


  3. Noel Says:

    No 3 is unsheepable for me. I’ve triple checked.

  4. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    1. Goodness, now I’ll be fretting over the viscosity of my water supply all day.

    2. ‘Look, that rabbit’s got a vicious streak a mile wide! It’s a killer!’

    3.Although, to be fair, Space had a naked cat lady on it.

    4. Oh, it’s that Acorna girl, innit?

  5. SI Says:

    I think you might need to clear your cache to see the unsheeped. I have full boobage!

    Or just click here:

    Also just realising with the unicorn… who put explosives on its feet?

  6. fred Says:

    I would humbly suggest you ensheepenfy the word ‘kink-stable’ on the unicorn puzzle.

  7. THX 1138 Says:

    Thanks to SI, I can now offer this bon mot:

    3: Does the “forbidden love” refer to the woman or the plant? Or the woman and the plant?

    Incidentally, Marlon Brando starred in the movie of Sayonara. Was this the edition he owned? Explains all too much…

  8. Tat Wood Says:

    Would I read them on the bus? Most nosy commuters would approve of a bad cover for a Booker-winning, officially sanctioned ‘good’ author than even the most tasteful cover of a science fiction novel by someone who doesn’t get interviewed on Newsnight.

    Not sure about doing the jigsaw on public transport, though…

  9. Tat Wood Says:

    What do unicorns do in a kink-stable, given their propensity for virgins?

  10. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    @Tat: given their propensity for virgins, what wouldn’t they do?

    Close examination of Cover #1 shows that the subject, in addition to rhinitis, appears to be crying. Perhaps this is the shower stall in the kink-stable?

  11. DaveM Says:

    Ok, if you click on the picture it appears unsheeped, but if you click on the “Click for full UNSHEEPED image” link, it’s sheeped. Quite odd.

  12. Jaouad Says:

    1. Private bathroom with hot and cold running nose?
    2. Font problem! The world ‘Ballroom’ is not anatomically correct. One ‘o’ should hang lower than the other.

  13. A.R.Yngve Says:

    Cover #1:

    Cover #2:

    Cover #3:
    A Novel of Idiotic Secondary Titles Added By Editors

    Cover #4:
    Hey, wait a minute! This is a bad cover, and the tag “kink-stable” is comedy gold, but still… it’s neither SF/F nor a book.
    [gives webmaster a stern look] 😉

  14. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    The shadow on the unicorn’s posterior flank is a bit naff. It looks like his tummy and quads are an enormous pair of buttocks! I suppose that qualifies as an ‘eye-catching depth effect’…

  15. Stevie T Says:

    I have a terrible cold today. Cover #1 has accurately captured how I feel…

  16. Anna T. Says:

    Cover 1: These people clearly need to have Hitler’s ghost exorcised from their bathroom. I mean, would YOU want a murderous dictator staring at you in the shower?

    Cover 2: What. The. Fuck. Is this from an LSD trip the artist had, or something? Or is it perchance that a humanoid rosebush is dancing with her boyfriend the Headless Horseman? The previous is not a sentence that I ever imagined writing.

    Cover 3: A rather dull cover featuring Yet Another Naked Woman.

    The Puzzle: What the hell is a “Kink-Stable”? I’m going to assume it’s related to bestiality somehow, which creeps me the hell out.

  17. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:


    Would you read them on a bus? Would you judge them without fuss? Would you bring back jokes and brag? Would you alert the Wizard of Tag?

  18. Perry Armstrong Says:

    Cover #2: When Doctor + Rose fan fiction gets out of hand.

  19. GSS ex-noob Says:


    In a kink-stable.

  20. fred Says:

    We can haz kink-stable pleeze?

  21. Francis Boyle Says:


    That is. . . disturbing.

  22. B. Chiclitz Says:

    I suspect that in one way or another these are all novels of “forbidden love,” even the puzzle. Kudos on the grouping.

  23. Bruce A Munro Says:

    1. I really don’t want to speculate what’s going onto the toothbrush.

    2. It was a doomed romance: he had no head, she had whitefly, and the Ballroom hadn’t been swept out since the Nixon administration.

    3. A tale of forbidden love between a naked woman and her space sheep.

    4. A puzzle from the Olden Days, when men were men and unicorns were even manlier.

    @fred: it’s hard enough to take an attractive selfie with fingers and thumbs, imagine trying to do it with hooves.

  24. GSS ex-noob Says:

    #2: so when her noggin wilts and has to be pruned… that’s a whole new meaning to “deadheading roses”.

  25. B. Chiclitz Says:

    I guess, WRT # 2, I could have also said “Kudos on the groping.”

  26. GSS ex-noob Says:

    #2, I realized neither of them have eyes, which means they’re going to trip over all the stuff on the ballroom floor. Bunny had better watch out.

  27. Bruce A Munro Says:

    @GSS ex-noob: well, depends on what the headless guy’s normal job is. If he’s a Headless Horseman, he has to see well enough to ride a horse and chase hapless schoolmasters, eyes or not.

  28. GSS ex-noob Says:

    @Bruce: He doesn’t look like he’d be a very good Hessian mercenary even if he’d had a functional head. But maybe he’s got eyes at the level of his tie knot or something?

    @BC: yeah, he didn’t need eyes for the booty grab. Hopefully Ms. Rose is into that.

  29. Bruce A Munro Says:

    Wait a mo: in the first picture, is that a…


    Could it actually be…
