    Way-Far Out, Dude!

    What is this? Way-Fairer? Way-Farrier? I’m confused.

    Orange zero, Discovery One.

    When will people realise… you shouldn’t just attach things to an apple and call it a space ship.

    @Noel: Ujay-Farer by Dennis Sch/nidt.

    Sun is not good for your skin: He’s actually eighteen.
    In space, sunlight also shrinks your head and makes your forearms grow longer.

    When assembling your katana, be careful with the superglue.

    This is why it is important to liberally apply sunscreen before practicing orbital yoga.

    Under the blond wig, the face of Henry Gibson. Under the bathrobe, the arms of a gibbon.

    The Death Peach approaches Alderaan.

    The ‘Sitting on the Earth Dressed Stupidly and Looking Stupid Party’ picked up Nought in last week’s election, despite their confrontational tactics.

  11. Feared Music Says:

    Is that a woman’s head on a man’s body? Or a man’s body beneath a woman’s head? Are those manly feet and womanly hands? And what does the vacuum of space do to a man’s barely concealed naughtybits ?

    Oh, and the spaceship is crap.

  12. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    Goodness, that’s Kurt Cobain! That explains…er, nothing, really.

    If that colossal man farts on the planet now, millions of people will suffocate!

  15. FearøfMusic Says:

    @A.R. Yngve- Unless it’s a planet of methane breathers, in which case he’s simply replenishing the atmosphere.

  16. Tom Noir Says:

    He looks so glum because he can’t find his bizarre mohawk’d horse thing.

  17. DaveM Says:

    Hmmm, obviously the mark 2 spaceship (the mark 1 generated power by sticking metal rods into a giant potato). Also, despite having a female head on a male body, the main message I’m seeing is about the importance of high SPF sunscreen.

    “Something COULD defeat Them.”

    “No weapon could defeat Them… but They were terrified by fruit spaceships and overtanned yogis!”

    Dammit, I asked for a Fruit-Corner Yoghurt!

  21. B. Chiclitz Says:

    Maybe not the best way to achieve Zen no-mind is to sit on a polar ice cap.

  22. fred Says:

    When he grows up he becomes this guy.

  23. GSS ex-noob Says:

    If you’re hanging around in space, the sun is going to be extra-bright, and thus he should have the other kind of Wayfarers on.

    John Cleese: “This is what happens when a civilization doesn’t properly defend itself against fresh fruit!”

  25. NomadUK Says:

    Kubrick’s original vision for the Starchild, until Clarke and Trumbull tied him down and slapped him around a bit.

  26. GSS ex-noob Says:

    Every time I glance at this quickly, the orange-powered spaceship looks like this guy is wearing a very stupid hat/fascinator, the kind you see at royal weddings or fancy horse races.

  27. Bruce A Munro Says:

    At first one thinks it’s just early 1980s Orientalism in! Space! but then one sees the fruitship and shit gets surreal

  28. GSS ex-noob Says:

    I was thinking “Is the oddly-tanned person leaning backwards, which would explain the small head and big legs? and hands”

    And then I thought “Aha! Leaning backwards from the weight of the fruitship hat!”

  29. Max Bathroom Says:

    “If I meditate hard enough, everybody will forget that I’ve come to the dojo wearing a spaceship with a giant peach in it as a hat.”
