    I don’t know what they did. But they did it wrong.

    A bit of a close shave, this morning?

    I say, my good fellow, we’re looking for a sixth member for our ensemble…care to join us?

    On his quest Vakar encounters Amazons, a seductive queen who is under a spell, an amorous centauress, sorcerers who command legions of headless warriors, and the dangerous Gorgonians themselves, masters of the medusas with their paralyzing glares.

    I’m sorry, Mr. Grant, but that’s easily the LEAST amorous-looking centauress I’ve ever seen on a fantasy book cover.

    Mattel’s failure to secure the rights to Arnie’s facial likeness resulted in poor sales of their Conan action figure.

    You can tell the guy in front is the leader because he has the longest neck-stalk. It’s an evolutionary thing.

  10. B. Chiclitz Says:

    Ok, I know no one else wants to go here, but if these beefsteak neck-stalkers are missing the big head . . . ?

  11. B. Chiclitz Says:

    And so kids, we learn that a squadron of soldiers cannot march properly in place if none of the soldiers has a head.

    Marching on its stomach could prove difficult for this army. And sticky.

    All I can say is that at least this is from the book . . .

    “Captain, I think we should stop doing the twirly sword bit as part of our marching drills.”

    TRIVIA: Morton W. Thompkinsville, second from right, went on to play the Black Knight’s stunt double in a movie version of the Arthurian legends.
