Actually, that cover IS a classical work of art!I would touch it without protective gloves.I've seen worse. Far, far, worse.Interesting, but I would still read it in public.Middlng: Neither awful nor awfully goodWould not like to be seen reading that!Awful... just awful...That belongs in a gold-lame picture frame!Gah... my eyes are burning! Feels so good!Good Show Sir! (Average: 8.79 out of 10)

    Are you sure this isn’t the cover to the Bradbury classic Dandelion Whine?

  2. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    A very seedy cover…

    It bothers me more than it should, that some of these seeds have moustaches, and some do not.

    Puff Daddies

    Poor guys thought they were volunteering to test a new baldness treatment.

  5. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    And then Manseed comes speeding through the lot of them.

    As someone with nasty seasonal allergies, I feel like this must be what pollen looks like under the microscope.

    The Centauri from ‘Babylon 5’ perform ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’

    I think even the most weed-casual gardener would want to exorcise these dandelions from their lawn immediately.

    We’re seeds in outer space
    Drifting along spreading the Caucasian race

    The fellow from The Great Mirror gets a bit of ‘relief’ from his lady friend.

  11. JuanPaul Says:

    I have to give the artist credit. He really went for it.

    Assume that’s the moon and the Earth back there. The moon is under eclipse; the Earth’s shadow is covering most of it. Given the way they are aligned, then, the sun must be off to the right (from the viewer’s perspective). So how come the Puff Daddies are lit from the other side?

    “We . . . . . ain’t got nobody . . .

    There’s nothing I can possibly add that you guys haven’t already noted. Except:

    1. this makes me want to go out and weed the lawn
    2. the word “Shemp” keeps popping into my head. Or perhaps “Larry” or “Curly”.

    “Are we there yet?”
    “Nope! At this speed, we’ll reach our destination in about 1 million years!”
