    Someone is unfamiliar with how a ‘strap-on’ works…

    I’ve heard walking under a ladder is bad luck, but this is etc.

  5. B. Chiclitz Says:

    Always good to come equipped with extra ammo belts, especially when otherwise naked.

  6. Tat Wood Says:

    @B. Chiclitz: this IS the book that introduced us to Lazarus Long…

  7. JuanPaul Says:

    Half of her hair is an Afro and the other half is a bouffant.
    Does that make her hairstyle an affront?

  8. B. Chiclitz Says:

    @JuanPaul—that’s better than a boufro, at least.

    If I were Methuselah I would be demanding a whole lot of paternity tests.

    Is she dancing in front of a wall of mirrors, or something?

    I can’t think of anything else clever to say.

  11. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    Seems Mary and Carrie and Sherry all had a little lamb.

  12. MisterBob Says:

    I’m pretty sure,this is an album by Brian Pern !
    : – ( yep ,i can’t think of anything clever to say ,either : – )

  13. JuanPaul Says:

    Sometimes a cover can instantly drain you of all cleverness. Seems to happen with Heinlein novels pretty often.

  14. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    The Amsterdam revival of A Chorus Line never made it.

  15. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    Originally, Methuselah’s Children and Methuselah’s Children’s Fruit Snacks.

  16. THX 1138 Says:

    Methuselah would feel five hundred again after seeing that lot.

  17. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    ‘On a scale from one to ten, how awful is this cover?’

  18. infoqueen Says:

    @JuanPaul: Well, I’m affronted by it.
