    … and yet, with just a few conceptual changes, ‘Cars’ went on to become a much-loved addition to the Pixar canon.

    That’s a new take of being one with your vehicle… With a phenix sitting on your brain, quacking away. Sublime

    What concerns me is how he brakes!

    At least it wasn’t naked Adolf on the cover of The Iron Dream.

    Add all of the roses in the world and this is basically how Revolutionary Girl Utena ends.

    At first glance, I thought those were rows of neatly arranged vegetables in the background.

    Looks like this guy On Wheels.

    I’m not sure if Slaughterhouse 5 really improved the story much… I mean the characters were just so one dimensional. Nothing can.. or will beat the wild west set slaughterhouse 7.

    Think of baseball practice… Bea Arthur… John Major… don’t think about anything sexy… Kate Upton… nooo…. ARRRGHH!!

    Cocaine is a hell of a drug.

  13. Perry Armstrong Says:

    So, can anyone tell me the difference between the standard edition ‘Order of The Phoenix’ and the adult edition?

  14. SI Says:

    @Perrry – Lets just say… magic wand is more on an euphemism!

    ‘Slaughterhouse Five’: once-popular book killed stone-dead by an auteur director making a hash of the film.
    ‘Dune’: ditto.

    So ‘On Wheels: The Movie’ must have been so dreadful that not only has everyone forgotten it and the book but all trace of it having been a campus must-read has vanished.

    I do *not* want to know what that phoenix-thing is doing to Mr. Wheels-for-Hands-Guy….

    Just say no to wheels.

    @AR: Baseball practice…Famous figures from recent history…and now…ON WHEELS.

    Hey, check out the hot ass cock on that guy!

    @Tag Wizard – Isn’t “Sir-Mix-A-Lot” reserved for the ladies? I thought we had a “hunkbutt” tag for the gents.

  22. anon Says:

    @DSWBT: I believe you are mistaken: That’s a hot head cock.

  23. Tag Wizard Says:

    @Bibliomancer – Yes. You know your butts.

    Oppressing your subjects and showing off your power by turning one of your subjects into your personal transportation has either risen to a new low or a new high, depending on your opinion. I mean, for an immortal God-Emperor, it’s surprisingly wasteful – you’re going to have to replace the human component every so often.

    One of Professor Pat Pending’s off-days

  26. A.R.Yngve Says:

    This cover has too many metaphors for its own good…

  27. A.R.Yngve Says:

    New Rule: If a publisher makes an incredibly embarrassing book cover, said publisher has no right to complain that customers are too embarrassed to buy the book.

  34. A.R.Yngve Says:

    But jokes aside, what is this cover trying to say? What does that face tell us?
    Something like: “AAAAAAAAAAAA!!!”

  35. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    The irony was that Professor Snape was seen by MANY MORE THAN seven Muggles on his way to Hogwart’s that year!

  36. FearõfMusic Says:

    He’s driving the wrong way up an exit ramp. This is not going to end well….

  37. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    @FöM: I saw that one time in downtown Mexico City, not sure how it didn’t.

  38. GSS noob Says:

    This cover artist was waaaay too enamored of his Pontiac Firebird.

    That’s right, ladies! Those wheels go alllll the way around.
