Tom Noir’s Art Direction: “How about a peep show for kinky dolphins?”
Published 1981

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: 7.56 out of 10)

    “Zany chaos”. Really.

    Btw, how long have we had the neo-jesus tag?

    Man, is he going to feel embarrassed when he wakes up.

  3. Francis Boyle Says:

    FYI, all dolphins are kinky, the little buggers. Just ask Jessica Alba.

  4. Tag Wizard Says:

    @RachelJ – We’ve had neo-jesus since 18 August 2009.

    He dived for our sins.

    Will your anchor hold in the storms of life?
    Will a dolphin do when you want a wife?
    When the strong tides lift, and the cables strain,
    Will electric halos start to fry your brain?

    You would really have to re-work the lyrics to ‘Immigrant Song’ for this scene to work.

  8. Tat Wood Says:

    An anchor that looks like a W. How apt.

  9. Tor Mented Says:

    Nothing says “zany chaos” quite like crucifixion.

  10. Tom Noir Says:

    Hey! I thought this was another one of my submissions that had vanished into the ether. Glad to see that even a giant anchor couldn’t keep it from resurfacing.

  11. Tom Noir Says:

    @JuanPaul: Or, he died for our swims.

  12. Anna T. Says:

    @JuanPaul and @Tom Noir: Maybe this is the special, secret sailors’ and divers’ version of a standard crucifix.

  13. GSS ex-noob Says:

    @Tor (9): Crucifixion PLUS electrocution. Zany chaos doubled!

    Is this worthy of the WTF tag? It’s more than worthy of “weird pecs”. I can’t figure out how the prepubescent girl boobs go with the visible ribs, nor how either go with the overdeveloped lower arms. Seriously, that down just below the elbow is absolutely Popeye arms, which at least goes with the nautical theme? Can’t figure out the clothing either.

    @THX: GSS.

  14. B. Chiclitz Says:

    I see a face in the lightning with the halo as it mouth. Not asking for a face-in-lightning tag or anything.

  15. GSS ex-noob Says:

    Husband says “Arms as fallopian tubes?”

    @BC: I see the face now.

  16. Anti-Sceptic Says:

    I wonder if the Behind You! tag applies here…

  17. GSS ex-noob Says:

    @A-S: I think so.

  18. A.R.Yngve Says:

    His expression is like that Don Martin strip where a man is struck down by a safe dropped from a skyscraper, then has his tongue rolled out across the street where it’s trampled by a military parade plus a pogo stick… and then he serenely claims “I didn’t feel a thing!”

  19. Verylatetotheparty Says:

    Is that tag right or should it read “Neon-Jesus”?
