    OMG – he’s just beheaded a tiny sheep!

  2. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    My lord’s fanny pack doth come loose!

  3. Tom Hering Says:

    No “man purse” tag?

  4. Noel Says:

    Forsooth, said the maiden. Luckily, my nipple shields do offer sufficient protection against the cleavings of yon mighty blade, my lord.

    “Come Offutt, this is too goddamn heavy to lift!”

  6. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    Dad typed swiftly and with great passion. In this fashion, he eventually wrote and published more than 400 books. Two were science fiction and 24 were fantasy, written under his own name; the rest were pornography, using 17 pseudonyms.

  7. A.R.Yngve Says:

    The sword hilt is equipped with the hilarious party trick “Instant Self-Stabber”.

    The victim moves his sword toward himself and ZOINK! he stabs himself in the thigh! A guaranteed ice-breaker at barbarian parties!

    @DSWBT – Damn. Would have made for a great Philip Seymour Hoffman Oscar bait film. Or a Werner Herzog documentary. Zombie porn?
    Cover – Boris Vallejo wept.

  9. Tag Wizard Says:

    @Tom Hering – Of course we have that tag. Haven’t used it in awhile.
    And a Faux-nan too.

  10. Bibliomancer Says:

    Is that the Sydney Opera House in the background?

  11. Anna T. Says:

    The title brings to mind a Conanesque setting where everyone speaks in Received Pronunciation, tuts and drinks tea. Also, monocles.

    And, moving on, is that sword blade made of energy, or is it just glowing with the force of the swing?

  12. Tom Noir Says:

    Constipation makes people do dreadful things.

  13. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    @AnnaT: more like the force of the TING!, amirite?

    …I didn’t even bring me coat this time.

  14. BMunro Says:

    @AnnaT: “My Lord, Barbarian. Have you been out waving that bloody great pigsticker around again?”

  15. Tat Wood Says:

    @Anna T: fie upon your ethnic stereotypes (again). ‘Barbarian’ is clearly an Armenian surname.

  16. B. Chiclitz Says:

    @DSWBT—in light of your blurb, one wonders what’s in the “AJO Books” boxes, and the “P Dad” box.

  17. B. Chiclitz Says:

    “Now today, class, we will use this cover to study angular momentum. How many swinging things can you count on this cover?”

  18. Anna T. Says:

    @Tat Wood: Actually, the word “barbarian” is from Ancient Greek.

    Or shall we settle this matter like gentlemen, on the field of honour?

  19. Tat Wood Says:

    @Anna T: Where do you suggest – the middle of the Atlantic?

    (And the Greeks used it to denote nearby foreigners, such as Anatolia. According to Herodotus the Neuri were werewolves from Scythia, modern-day Armenia. S’true: Book IV, just before the stuff about Amazons).

  20. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    @AnnaT, TatWood: peace, I beg you both! The title is clearly a misprint of My Lord Nairabrab, an archaic term for a caravansary-owner native to Nairobi. Let us not be quick to anger.

  21. B. Chiclitz Says:

    Nairobi? Was that formerly Binario, country that split in two?

    Trout Wand Jeff

  23. A.R.Yngve Says:

    Oh, it’s that guy who writes that column in The Daily Mail.

  24. JuanPaul Says:

    The Free the Nip campaign has gotten very aggressive.

  25. GSS ex-noob Says:

    Why don’t we see the “The Man Bag, etc.” tag more often? Someone find more examples of The Murse!

  26. Verylatetotheparty Says:

    The nipples are not yet free! They still have those metal… things on them, (whatever a slightly over cautious space sheep might think)

    I can’t look at this without thinking ‘That’s not a sword, THIS is a sword! – now, what did you just say about my man bag?’

  27. Ryan Says:

    Does that look like a googly-eye pasted onto The Man Bag to anyone else?
