    In the background at right is a flotilla of the Up to the Sky in Ships ships.

    In Unknown Artist’s defense, none of the ladies seems to be slipping on a broken ankle and begging for help.At left, you’ll note the lady is trying to push the slipping gentleman out of the way so that his saltatory companion doesn’t Super Mario the poor fellow into mush.

    Athletes at Rio 2016 trying to escape another plumbing disaster?

    @Tom Noir: ‘A Torrent of Faeces’, you mean?

  16. Tag Wizard Says:

    @Perry – Hover mouse. See alt-text on picture.

  17. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    @Perry, TW: Hover mouse! Hover mouse! Hover mouse!

    Which might explain the smoke from the explosion in the background…

    Goddamned Pokémon Go players!

    Edited – damnnit someone did the faeces gag already…

  20. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    Leeching warez, interpreted through the medium of dance!

    (since the ‘faeces’ gag has been done to death, I thought I’d try ‘torrent’)

    Why is the guy in front equipped with a helmet (and why does it have a honeycomb pattern?) and a breather thingy when everyone else is bareheaded and have no other equipment? At best they’ve got a hood attached to their unitard, like speed skaters. Except for the poor woman upper left who might be starkers.

  22. Ray P Says:

    Perhaps he didn’t want to be recognised after appearing on this cover.
