    Well, there’s no excuse for that kind of language.

    “I bet your hitting stick doesn’t have a telescopic sight. Mine does. And a counterbalance too. See how accurate it is?”

    The alien managed to reach the beach before its saucersship ran out. Packed trunks but forgot an inflatable. The deleted original end of The Thing.

    My report on world of ptavvs
    By ded stuf with big teth
    Age thurty nine

    World of ptavvs is about a boy named larry who runs away from his family and hides at the bottom of the oshun until they all sod off. And then he and his friend run off to neptune which is like uranus except you dont get hit when you say it at table. I give the book an atey out of an hundred.

    the end.

    I didn’t know you could be cross-eyed while only possessing one eye. The only other options are that he has lazy eye, or that he’s blind. Which bodes well for the chances of his survival on this planet.

    And why does the rest of his facial expression come off as a lascivious leer? That makes me feel comfortable hanging out with him . . .

    Exclusive to Ollivanders, the Latinus Terriblus sniper wand (Cyclops Orc & saucership sold separately)!

  11. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    There’s no sense of impact. It’s as if the spaceship were placed gently on the sands, and the cycloptile is taking a bow before impressed onlookers.

  12. HappyBookworm Says:

    @DSWBT – I noticed that, too. It’s less like he crashed and more like he just landed in a pod with a big hole in the side. I think he looks as though he is stalking forward asking, “All right, who laughed at my ship? You? I’ll hit you with this techno-wand!”

  13. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    @HBw: heh! ‘You damned kids! Get off of my lawn! Sandbox, whatever.’

  14. Perry Armstrong Says:

    Damn! Someone’s taken my Kzanol action figure out of its packaging.

  15. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    Dear Mr. Jones,

    I notice that you have a sort of a ‘lurching’ theme to your art. It’s not really my thing, but if it moves books off the shelves, I shan’t object. Enclosed, please find an autographed 8×5 glossy.

    Yrs, etc., DSWBT
