    He looked so much better from the backside.

  3. THX 1138 Says:

    The strapline makes it sound like Bringing Up Baby. The cover makes it look like Bringing Up Your Lunch.

    Rollicking Chaos. But that’s the best sort.

  5. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    Here’s a quiz: how many vaginae can you see in the picture? Remember, a vagina juxtaposed on another vagina only counts as two.

  6. B. Chiclitz Says:

    So it is true—the road to hell is paved with really bad paperback book covers.

  7. B. Chiclitz Says:

    It’s a good thing there are no feet—with that terrain, she’d be bound to twist her ankle and have to be carried to safety by cat-suit man.

    Rollicking Chaos … BEHIND YOU!

  10. Tom Noir Says:

    It will never work out. Their outfits clash.

  11. B. Chiclitz Says:

    This is one of those cleverly constructed blurbs where you can switch the adjectives around at will with no loss (or gain) in meaning:

    “A rollicking blonde and her madcap lover challenge a world of reckless chaos.”

    “A reckless blonde and her rollicking lover challenge a world of madcap chaos.”

    Rollicking chaos? Rollicking Chaos – The Movie Trailer.

  13. Tat Wood Says:

    She’s got her jet-pack corset on backwards. Maybe that’s what happened to her feet.

    They seem to be fleeing from an animate Picasso painting.

    @BC: ‘A pavement world and a hell of a challenge lick a mad blonde capless:


  16. JuanPaul Says:

    @AnnaT It’s like some lost collaboration between Picasso, Dali, and Kandinksy

  17. Bibliomancer Says:

    @DSWBT – I’d read that! 🙂

  18. A.R.Yngve Says:

    “A madcap blonde and her reckless lover challenge a world of rollicking chaos”… but enough talk about Ivanka Trump.

    “Hurry! We mustn’t Dali.”

  20. B. Chiclitz Says:

    @B’Mancer—Brilliant! Your ripostes never fail to Braque me up!

  21. Al G. Says:

    Incidentally, “madcap” and “reckless” aptly describe the couple’s fashion choices: a tiger print tracksuit and what appears to be two silver bells welded together and used as a corset.

  22. HappyBookworm Says:

    @B. Chiclitz – Nice observation…I think I’ll choose “A rollicking blonde and her madcap lover challenge a world of reckless chaos” as I don’t think chaos even CAN be “rollicking.”…Also, it makes me wonder what good intentions this bizarre couple had to form the proverbial pavement.

  23. Tat Wood Says:

    @HappyBookworm: chaos can rollick – we have a Foreign Secretary who is living proof.

  24. B. Chiclitz Says:

    @Tat Wood—alas, here we have to settle for the reckless chaos of one of our presidential nominees. And, unlike GSS, it’s not funny.

  25. Tat Wood Says:

    @B.Chiclitz: recalling this might cheer you up – it’s pretty rollicking.

  26. B. Chiclitz Says:

    @TW—thanks, bro’ I needed that 😉
