Shake the ball! I want to see the little people fall out of the houseClick for full image

Bibliomancer Comments: Political arguments ruined the Greyhaven Thanksgiving reunion dinner. The barbarian uncle was a Trump supporter. And the Unicorn! voted Jill Stein.

    Let’s see, we have thunder god Brian Blessed… Michael Keaton as Birdman… Harry Mudd (it’s rude to stare)… the Witch Mountain kids… a goat unicorn… well, you’d cry too if you all had to fit in that house.

    @THX: who do you reckon voiced the fairy? Judy Dench? Or Helen Mirren?

    Why does everyone always congregate in the kitchen? The red head has the same expression as this poor woman.

    Happy Thanksgiving! I find your lack of yams disturbing.

    The various magicians’ facial expressions look like they are only tolerating the presence of the two children with atrocious haircuts – except for that mustachioed man, who I can only assume is their creepy great-uncle.

    The house in the crystal ball is where Green Dress is planning on sending them so they get out of her hair.

    I don’t know why, but those gelatins with fruit or candies or whatnot inside always amuse me.

    The kids from the Dungeons and Dragons cartoon never did get home, did they?

  9. JuanPaul Says:

    @Vrymis some of them didn’t age so well

    Watch it lady, the little brat is trying to steal your R-rated books not tv Game of Thrones Daario Naharis dagger.

  11. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    @fred: either way, Mustachio will be on the receiving end.

    @JuanPaul male pattern baldness is a cruel thing – just ask Prince William. I guess Eric here responded by forming an addiction to cronuts. Er… dire cronuts.

    Jim Jarmuch has wings?

    “Do we have to watch this? What’s on Netflix?”

    The cover doesn’t phaze me — I live in Norway. EVERY Christmas gathering is exactly like that image.

    Huh. The house in the ball actually looks like MZB’s, which was called Grayhaven.
    (I seen pictures. In the time before we knew the Awful Truth.)
