    We’ll see how she does in the Preakness.

  3. JuanPaul Says:

    She wasn’t human, and found herself in a cruel world where chairs weren’t designed to accommodate the tailed!

  4. Raoul Says:

    @fred – I hear she’s a real mudder.

  5. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    I believe the beast in the front is supposed to be the Iguanodon from the Crystal Palace.

    Edit: and in the foreground is one of The Tall Stones.

  6. B. Chiclitz Says:

    @DSWBT—I thought that was R’li (she is incredibly beautiful, for an iguanodon), and the other creature the sad result of some failed genetic experiment.

  7. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    @BC: I’m not saying it isn’t. Don’t go jumping to conclusions too…r’li. 🙂

    Harvey Smith pauses in the bookshop…

  9. B. Chiclitz Says:

    Back when she was an aspiring and naive young iguanodon starlet, the incredibly beautiful R’li, short of money as so often happens in Hollywood, found herself displaying certain skills in a film she would later regret, namely the scandalous R’li Does Bakersfield.

  10. A.R.Yngve Says:

    The sequel BEYOND DARE failed — despite the intriguing pitch:
    “R’La was incredibly ugly — but she was human.”

  11. Tat Wood Says:

    So the only tail-enabled toilet was made of limestone and out in the open air?

  12. Anna T. Says:

    Is she half-centaur or something?

  13. Sue Says:

    R’li appears to be able to produce golden showers…from where its navel would be if it were human.

  14. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    Those must be mushrooms in the background to centre. But that thing in the back right doesn’t look like anything so much as a Selaginella stuck in upside-down.

  15. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    ‘It follows me…everywhere I go…’

  16. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    At casual glance, the throne appears to be erupting from her navel.

  17. JuanPaul Says:

    “…now watch me neigh neigh.”

  18. GSS ex-noob Says:

    Didn’t we already have a nekkid women with tails and orange color recently?
    (tag search “people with tails”)


    This r’li shows why proper tagging is important.

  19. Tom Noir Says:

    Listen, I’ve seen LOTS of girls with horse tails on the internet, it doesn’t mean they’re not human.

  20. GSS ex-noob Says:

    Will someone, probably Canadian, track down a copy of this?

    (all right, not technically SF, but still! and it won a literary award!)

    @DSWBT @GSSXN – Where do you think you are? Chinese GSS?

  24. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:


  25. GSS ex-noob Says:

    @B’mancer: Japanese GSS. Oops, I’ve said too much.


  26. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    @GSS Jinmeiyō: I usually spell it 冴.

  27. Devotion Says:

    Angle/God forgives everything that why I have the courage to bare myself..Feel so connected –like I can breathe through him,can count his heartbeats.Amazing experience and so hard to let it go but I have to do that because I am not good for him

  28. Tat Wood Says:

    I held back on the obvious UK-centric joke because I thought someone else would make it but…

    Which one’s Digby?

  29. THX 1138 Says:

    @Tat: On this evidence, it’s Professor Peabody we should be concerned about.

  30. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    Brings a new meaning to the name ‘Muffin the Mule’.

  31. GSS ex-noob Says:

    @DSWBT: Considering what led to the concept, you could call yourself 竜の骨。

    (I like 竜 . It looks kinda like what it is. Of course it also looks like a 猫.)

  32. Tiffany Says:

    It doesn’t help that she’s a redhead. Looking at this (With or Without glasses) My first thought wasn’t ‘That’s a tail’

    I’ve never seen a visual for projectile diarrhea before…
