    “This is not what I ordered! Look, if you insist, I’ll eat it, but at least have it cooked!”

    I distinctly ordered “la tête de Jean-Baptiste”, not the “la tête de la Méduse”! Don’t you people know who I am? That’s it, your whole establishment is getting a bad review! No stars for you!

    “Waiter, waiter, there’s a fly in my – oh, a snake ate it.”

    ‘God, Dad, I can’t take you ANYWHERE! You always get drunk, you always tell off the waiter, you always order off of the menu and you always, always, ALWAYS bitch about every last little thing!’

    The severed head nicely illustrates A. Kelly’s observation regarding gaping mouths (cf. post 11 “The Planet Wizard”), as also shown here.

    “The food here is terrible. And the portions are too small”

    Sea God is on a seafood diet. He sees food. He eats it.

    “Sorry, sorry, just passing through, be out of your way in a minute, don’t mind me, nicely polished table dude, anybody seen something that looks like a Kraken? Big ugly Titan much overused in recent special effects extravaganzas? Seen Liam Neeson around anywhere? Larry Olivier? UNLEASH THE BANANAS!”

    “First off… this wine is clearly not a 68! Secondly… you’re turning me to stone!”

  11. Tat Wood Says:

    What a considerate artist: a cross-eyed gorgon turned people either side of her to stone but left the readers unscathed.

    “And this Chateau Lafitte is supposed to be served slightly chilled! This is room temperature! Whaddya think we are, animals??”

    All this about Gorgon heads and statueification and crap restaurant service, and NO ONE mentions that they’re sitting in a pool of water!

    Have you no shame?

  16. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    @AnnaT: What? You got something against amphibians?

  17. Perry Armstrong Says:

    This isn’t ‘The Last Supper’ you’re looking for…

    You can go about your business…

    Move along.

  18. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    I always think of this song when I look at this cover. Not sure why…

  19. Anna T. Says:

    @DSWBT: I have nothing against amphibians. But these people, whoever they are, don’t seem aquatic, merely pale blue.

    And that should have said “petrification”.

  20. GSS noob Says:

    @Anna T: There’s a Sea God in! Of course there’s going to be puddles of water.
