    Hey, I remember the 20th century, and we had support brassieres. Those ladies seem too skinny and young to have drooped that far. One must presume they’re from a different century.

    The rifle is truly at odds with the rest of their hippie accouterments.

    Also, I have fired an automatic weapon, fully clothed and braced steadily. The young lady holding it’s going to be VERY sorry if she does shoot.

  2. THX 1138 Says:

    I know I should be worried about the rifle, but that cigarette is recklessly positioned.

  3. Bibliomancer Says:

    Obviously Moorcock gets paid by the word. Title words included.

  4. JuanPaul Says:

    I guess we know who wears the pants in this relationship!

  5. A.R.Yngve Says:

    To a Scandinavian like me, the title is hilarious — like saying “The Adventures of Sven Olafsson and Some Englishwoman in the Ordinary World.”

  6. B. Chiclitz Says:

    Uma Thurman plays Una Persson in the film version.

    This is either Woodstock or the Hindenburg disaster.

    Chapter 1: A Predicament

    Una Persson sighed and said: “Hurdi gurdi murdi!”

    Catherine Cornelius switched on the Universal Translation Computer and Una’s speech was converted to English, the most intelligible language in the Universe: “Blimey, Guv’nor! Me knickers are gone, ‘at’s a shame innit?”

    “Be calm, Una,” said Catherine. “Use your Space Rifle and hunt down a mutated beast, from which we can make clothes.”

    Una replied, and in translation her words read: “But Guv’nor, why is it that our equipment is whole while our clothes will vanish just like that? Bloody ‘ell! It’s ridiculous, innit!”

    “It’s science, dear,” said Catherine and popped a nutrition pill laced with Colombian marching powder, mystical herbs and plutonium-grade smack…

    The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants needs more sisters.
    And more pants.

  10. Tom Noir Says:

    “What resources have we got?”

    “One pair of trousers and one assault rifle.”

    “Let me have the rifle.”

    “Fine, but I get the trousers.”

    “What about the cigarette?”

    “Don’t be greedy, you already have a flower in your hair.”

  11. JuanPaul Says:

    “now that I have the assault rifle, how about those pants?”

  12. Bibliomancer Says:

    OK. So we shot that hobo and got his pants. Let’s hope the next drifter is wearing a bra!

  13. Anna T. Says:

    This may be objectification. If so, however, it’s one of the weirder kinds I’ve ever seen. As for whether these women are in a relationship*? I’d say so, yes.

    *the romantic kind, obviously

  14. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    Other than “the 20th Century”, where exactly is this image set?

  15. JuanPaul Says:

    @dswbt somewhere with really good studio lighting

  16. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    @JP: if the light is so good, then where is Frida Kahlo’s neck?

  17. Raoul Says:

    @DSWBT – And where are her left leg and arm?

  18. Alice Says:

    Bosom buddies?

  19. THX 1138 Says:

    @Alice: That’s what they should be wearing.

  20. GSS ex-noob Says:

    Appears Miss Starkers is right next to a rock, and there might be a stone wall above the serial number down right. Could it be a castle or dungeon?

    Those women are definitely in a relationship, and between the nudity, assault rifle, and perilous cigarette, we can tell which is the S and which is the D. Maybe they’re in their own personal dungeon.

    Still, got to give the nekkid one credit for being able to pose on one flexed foot, with no other leg… tho Mistress might be holding her up.

    “Dahling! This portrait will look fabulous above the fireplace. You’re so pretty with the flower in your hair and the giant firearm.”

  21. Francis Boyle Says:

    Typical! I spend an hour or 25 asleep and I miss all the lesbian action.

  22. Tor Mented Says:

    Is that an ammo magazine, or does the rifle accept MasterCard?

  23. JuanPaul Says:

    @dswbt16 right behind that chin beard she’s sporting.

  24. jrdelirio Says:

    Y’know, the Modesty Assault Rifle could be a very good strategy for getting USA market share…
