    The sheep look up‘.

    I thought I’d get the easy laughs over with right away.

  2. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    ‘Bring out the gimp.’

    ‘The gimp suffered on the cross for your sins and has been dead for three days.’

    ‘Well, then, I guess you better go wake him up.’

    I’m sorry, but all I see is a golf ball in a bungee being drawn back for the Amazing Never Before Seen Trick Shot!!! Watch now as one, I say ONE golf ball shatters not one, not two, but THREE crucifixes in one go!

    Although, by the bored posture of the Jason Voorhees carnie waiting to sell you a ticket, I have a feeling it actually has been seen before. Perhaps that’s why the Gods look down on it.

    A cover featuring a man grabbing his joystick and massaging his ball. HAVE YOU NO SHAME, SIR?!??

  5. Elvraie Says:

    I read first ‘The Good look down’ and was wondering what kind surgery that mummy like green man was recovering from.

  6. THX 1138 Says:

    Who was that masked man? I don’t know, but he looks like he’s been caught doing something he shouldn’t. Whatever that may be.

  7. THX 1138 Says:

    Incidentally, Trevor Hoyle wrote a great book called Vail that nobody remembers except me. My copy has a better cover than this.

  8. Bibliomancer Says:

    Poor ergonomics. Mummy-man should have his ball on the other side of his joystick. And is that a hard drive embedded in his chest?

  9. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    Lower right, eldritch scribbles on the stone:

    Ph’nglui mglw’nafh Ctrumpulhu Deecee wgah’nagl fhtagn

    So, we have Jason moonlighting as a surgeon, holding a ball with an ice cube stuck to it, fiddling with some odd equipment that may or may not have been constructed from an old scale.

    What any of this has to do with the scrap of Dead Sea Scroll and a trio of crosses floating in space is beyond me.

    . . . by the way, is that supposed to be a star or a wormhole? And is there a train coming?

    Just when you think the Friday the 13th film series can’t get any sillier.

  12. Ray P Says:

    It really needs Tom Baker.

  13. B. Chiclitz Says:

    The gods look down, the sheep look up, and what do you think they see? JC and his monkey pal!

  14. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    I suppose my question is, how is it for fans of Tolkein’s “Lord of the Rings”?

  15. Bibliomancer Says:

    @DSWBT – I don’t know, but Buffy fans should find a lot to like!

  16. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    If you look under ‘Recent Post Comments’, it says

    The Gods Look Down
    by Dead Stuff With Big Teeth

    What do they see down by me, I wonder?

  17. Francis Boyle Says:

    The early design studies for Davros were not a success.

  18. A.R.Yngve Says:

    Is the “parchment” in the lower right corner an attempt to impress buyers with the book’s age…?

    “Look, honey! That pocket book must have pages at least two thousand years old! Let’s bring it to the Antiques Roadshow!”

  19. Lionrock Says:

    “The Gods Look Down”
    *Some assembled deities look at the floor*
    “Aha! I didn’t say ‘Simon Says The Gods Look Down’! Come on now, be honest… Thor, you’re out. And you Anubis, you looked down too.”
