    Never before have two soap opera stars looked so puffy…

  2. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    The author appears to think less of this work than his gay erotica. Just sayin’.

  3. B. Chiclitz Says:

    I think he’s just passed gas and is trying to act all nonchalant about it while her facial expression reveals that it was a “silent but deadly.”

    Meanwhile Mauve Man appears afflicted with galaxy-strength halitosis.

    @DSWBT – William Maltese (writing as Adriana DeBolt – SF authoress) gushing over William Maltese – gay porn author (When Summer Comes).

    Looks like there’s been an unexpected trouser region surprise thanks to close proximity to a lady. Well, I say unexpected, I’m merely judging him on his wardrobe and hairdo.

    The Master Control Program puts Bewitched’s Elizabeth Montgomery on the game-grid.

    @THX 1138—might this be the archetypal moment you are referencing?

    “Hey, that’s not my belly button.”
    “That’s ok, that’s not my finger.”

    Looks as cheesy as a dozen Cheddar factories!

  10. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    @fred: the terms ‘gushing’ and ‘porn’ do not belong in the same sentence together THANK YOU TOO MUCH MOVING RIGHT ALONG.

    The unseen 14th episode of ‘The Starlost’, with special guests Henry Gibson and Pat Phoenix.

    You know, I’ve seen a lot of pictures of various novelty chessboards, but the “Tacky Christmas-Coloured” one is new.

    As is the . . . person in the black fencing mask, shooting a beam of light from their mouth.

  15. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    @AnnaT: I don’t know if you know of that classic of Thatcher-era film Short Circuit, but there’s a line in that movie about how the killer robot that later goes haywire was originally designed as a marital aid.

    The person you speak of may be such a creation…it would explain their facial expressions, after all.

  16. Tag Wizard Says:

    @Charles – Thanks! I didn’t notice.

    ‘Murphy’, his name tag says ‘Murphy’. He got our drink orders in and back correctly, with no spillage. He’s hovering, but my wife (bless her heart!) hasn’t noticed. The other couple in here are staring at him…I feel a little bit bad for him.

  19. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    My wife flagged down Murphy about her mei fun order, and now she’s twigged to him. The other couple are talking very, very quietly and there’s a third couple now that’s at the entrance…not sure what’s going through their minds.

  20. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    HE LIT THE CANDLE WITH HIS MOUTH. The candle on the next table went out, and he LIT IT FROM ACROSS THE ROOM WITH HIS MOUTH. Matt the Maitre d’ is giving him a stern talking-to, everyone else is leaving & so are we.

  21. Tom Noir Says:

    That’s a heckuva ‘o’ face.

    Klaus Kinski and Madeline Kahn in Mel Brooks’ ‘Space Balls 2: Dark Helmet’s Gambit’
