    #1: “Sorry, that is a bit cold, I’ll run myself under the hot tap…”

    #2: You can put lipstick on a robot, but you can’t make it whistle. Is that right?

    Achtung! Die Schkwisschenmädchen haben grosse Zungeschlorppe mit die Sorayamamekka!

    @TagZauberer: Es gibt eine Eule zwischen <<Science>> und <<Fiction>>.

    #2: Trump’s fantasy of how the meeting with Merkel went last week.

    @BC: Some things cannot be unseen, DAMN YOU! 😉

    Sorry, have to get back to my investigation of Alberto Vargas artwork.

  7. Bibliomancer Says:

    Whoa! Miss Mavis Ming has thighs like a T.Rex. Proportional issues maybe?

  8. fred Says:

    Kirkus review of book 1.

    ‘How obnoxious is he? Well, among other things he likes to masturbate while being interviewed on TV.’

  9. Tat Wood Says:

    Soundtrack for #2
    @Bibliomancer: it’s perspective – she’s trying to attack the artist.

  10. Raoul Says:

    This soundtrack works for both today’s covers:

    When I read today was “German Sex Robot Extravaganza” I thought to myself: I read a lot of blogs, but only GSS provides the content I need to stay informed and get through my day.
    Good Show Sir!

  11. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    Their son.

  12. Bibliomancer Says:

    @DSWBT – Their son they don’t like to talk about.

    ‘You know how to whistle, don’t you, Stevebot?

    import mouth
    import air

    ans = True

    while ans:
    if lips.together == 0;
    grep lips|mv /together

    elif lips.together == 1;
    mv air.obj /dev/null


  14. Alice Says:

    The question is whether one would be embarrassed to be seen reading these on a German bus.

  15. B. Chiclitz Says:

    I’ve mentioned this work before, but for those Jungen und Mädchen who wish to explore this trope or meme more deeply, IMHO nobody has done it better than Zappa. Check out this little ditty from Joe’s Garage where Joe is about to enter a dark night of the soul after hooking up with a Pan-Sexual Roto-Plooker named SY BORG.

  16. Sue Says:

    #1 I feel the more fleshy of the two has possibly dislocated her shoulder. Goodness only knows what’s happened to her hip.

    #2 Oh wait, there’s the missing hip!

  17. Anna T. Says:

    Is making love to a robot a common fantasy for Germans? Because judging by these covers, it is.

  18. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    @AnnaT: I’ve visited Berlin, and everyone seemed normal enough. Mind you, I was only there for five days, so I didn’t talk to anyone about Sechs. 🙂

  19. JuanPaul Says:

    What I’m taking away from these covers is, robot sex is not all that sexy.

  20. Tat Wood Says:

    @Raoul: I think this might also work

  21. Ray P Says:

    I must have missed the sexy Asimov stories. Ironically, he died of A.I.D.S..

  22. Francis Boyle Says:

    Number one’s enough to put a man off lesbian porn for life. I’m not sure what sort of sex is going on in number 2 but I’m off that too.

  23. GSS ex-noob Says:

    I think Miss Mavis Ming deserves a Sir Mix-a-Lot tag.

    WTF does #1 have to do with Asimov? His robots were never sexy. His books didn’t have sex in them. Huh.. apparently he wrote the forward — did he read the book? Did he know his name was gonna be in such large type? Because from that Kirkus review, this was… not the sorta thing Isaac dug.

    Perhaps some German anti-sex-robot league commissioned these covers. Certainly off-putting to me as well.

  24. Tag Wizard Says:

    @GSS ex-noob – Baby got back!

  25. Tom Noir Says:

    @GSS – I seem to recall some of Asimov’s books in the 70’s containing sex*.

    * and robots**

    ** but not necessarily both at the same time.

  26. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    ‘Fe + 3O2 + 2H2O = 2Fe2O3H2O’

    ‘Oh, you like it rough, do you?’

  27. GSS ex-noob Says:

    @DSWBT: Eh, she’s a little rusty.

  28. GSS ex-noob Says:

    Whoa, these covers currently stand at #1, ahead of the screaming guy of “Wheels” and our old pal ISTBE centaur!
