    For heaven’s sake, people, don’t just stand there. Someone get that poor man on the right a wrist!

    Where’s the conquering? All I see is a pub crawl or something from Trumps golden shower porn stash.

    Two chestnuts to conker – or to be conkered by.

    This cover is above all else exceptionally dull. Some people may see basketball, I see three people posing for a bad tourist shot.

    Let’s not be too hard on the Rye Jellyians. I think they’re about to form a heart symbol with their arms.

    My money’s on the Battling Betelgeusans*. I always like to support the underdog. (Though the Pissed-off Polarans shouldn’t be written off at this stage of the competition.)

    *Wasn’t that a Disney movie.

    It’s like this started to be brightly colored to make up for the odd composition, but then the art director or editor said, “Naah, let’s make sure it’s completely dull — gray everything down! No intensity whatsoever!”

    For some reason the guy on the right makes me think of “The Knights Who Say NI!” Or maybe the guys together are the 3-headed one. It’s 3 boring guys failing to do something Pythonesque while posing for a bad selfie in a planetarium.

    I think you’re all wrong…it’s a commercial for underarm deodorant.

    And the rivalry is over who’s using the most effective brand?

    Not the guy in the middle, I guess.

    You know it’s a bad neighborhood when even the astronauts make gang signs.
