    …because flooding the palace at Versailles and canoeing it in the nude would be scandalous!

    ‘A future concept you never saw behind!’

    I think they’ve just spotted these folks.

    Watch out, they’ll be playing volleyball next.

    “The orgy is THAT way!”

  7. Tat Wood Says:

    The ‘Future Concept You Never Read Before’ is almost exactly like Christopher Priest’s ‘Inverted World’ except with Hugh Hefner as the protagonist.
    The crunch comes when the mobile city reaches the ‘Tailend’.

    Which must be what the artist was thinking about.

    @TagWizard: I salute you sir for the Mix-a-Lot tag. “Becky, look at that girl’s butt.”

  9. Tag Wizard Says:

    @NGpm – Thank you. I have become quite an expert at tagging butts.

    Cover artist John Pound paints dark smears in lieu of eyes … but he can illustrate nipple shields in exquisite detail!

    Looks like blond boy has lost his loincloth, a fact poop-deck girl seems just to have discovered. She looks to be about to recoil in horror.

    And overall, it doesn’t feel like there is nearly enough fun is going on here, I mean, given what you might expect from the set up.

  12. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    @Tat: from your link, it sounds like they’re sailing the seas of sewage.

  13. anon Says:

    “Becky, you better not smear the boat or my dad’ll kill me.”
    “Hey guys! Look at that!”
    “Dude! Why would you tie your dick there?!”
    “He did what? Let me see.”

  14. Anna T. Says:

    Where are they, anyway? An underground water treatment facility? An absurdly spacious sewer? A flooded palace? Wherever they are, it’s clear they, at least, do not fear drowning. Although the young lady in the back may want to watch herself lest she fall out.

  15. Bibliomancer Says:

    @ Anna T. – She’s likely to fall out of her top and the boat.

  16. Ray P Says:

    Nudists take over Disneyland.

  17. B. Chiclitz Says:

    @Ray P—yes; I think this ride is called “Privates of the Caribbean.”

  18. Perry Armstrong Says:

    ♫ And the big hair keep on flowing, tanning lamps burning up above
    And I’m just pointing ahead
    Come on and take a surreptitious poop, girl
    On the tunnel of polyamorous love…

  19. fred Says:

    Best interpretation of ‘Immigrant Song’ ever.

  20. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    @RayP: It’s called ‘Space Mountain’, not ‘Cleavage City’.

    “Carol! What are you doing? I told everyone to go BEFORE we set off on this very long journey!”

  23. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    The Internet has named her ‘Boaty McBoatButt’.

  24. Jon K. Says:

    @DSWBT: Does that mean she’s a “research vessel”? ::wink wink, nudge nudge::

  25. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    @Jon K.: you may choose one of the following snappy retorts:

    A) ‘Well, she was designed to be filled up with seamen and ride the waves, if you know what I mean!’


    B) ‘No, it means the Internet is filled with idiots.’

    You may choose one and only one, sir! Choose wisely. 🙂

  26. Jon K. Says:

    @DSWBT: Door number 3! Oh, rats….

  27. A.R.Yngve Says:

    Blurb, simplified:
    “Before you read about this concept, it was in the future where you couldn’t read it.”

  28. Ray P Says:

    Soon-to-be-beheaded explorers of the tunnels beneath the Kaba in Mecca. Club 18-30 holidays in Saudi Arabia didn’t last.

  29. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    Say, you don’t suppose he’s propelling the boat forward with his mighty pelvic thrusts?

  30. Ryan Says:

    Given the shiny aluminum material of which the boat is constructed, the extremely shallow draft and narrow-but-round hull, and the positions the crew have adopted, shouldn’t the boat roll over and capsize almost immediately, if not sooner?

    Or perhaps the keel is formed from iridium, or maybe the crew in comprised entirely of acrobats with incredible balance? The crew is certainly “dressed” like they are members of Cirque du Soleil, which maybe suggests that in the book Las Vegas has flooded, and the survivors are punting their way out of the Strip.

  31. GSS ex-noob Says:

    @Bruce: Their boat was designed and built by whoever also built the flying car for The Ambiguously Gay Duo. Same shape, same defiance of physics.

  32. Bruce A Munro Says:

    @GSS ex-noob: that comment was Ryan, not me.

  33. GSS ex-noob Says:

    @Bruce, @Ryan: I blame the woeful physics.

    I wonder if the women are singing “Sit Down, You’re Rocking the Boat”.

    @Tat (7): “A future concept you’ve never read before”, except for maybe 7 years ago, minus the really mind-bending geometry parts and all the clothes.
