    If that’s what I think it is, no wonder Adolf only kept one if the other was glowing.

    Harry Potter and the Messiah Stone. The messiah stone was a mythical substance said to turn unlimited sequels into gold.

    One ting to rule them all.

    What is it? The last viagra left on earth?

  5. L.B. Says:

    ‘Aquarius mission’ – it didn’t hold water.

    Also, “Call in the jets! There’s something holding on to my leg!”

    Just like a glowing Shin Godzilla, we are about to get plasma beams shooting out of unexpected body parts.

    “But honey, the tailor said you dress left, and well, er, I think there are some unwanted side effects to that radioactive stone.”

  8. Anna T. Says:

    Ahh, the old pulp-fiction “damsel clings to hero’s leg”. How delightfully sexist.

    I really have to wonder, though: how many book covers are there here that invoke Hitler and his ilk? I can’t imagine it’s that many.

    Also, I have no interest whatsoever in owning anything that used to belong to a Nazi. Because there’s something really disturbing about that.

  9. Tor Mented Says:

    @Anna T.: I’m not sure if Demi Moore is clinging to his leg. It looks like she’s preparing to do a judo move.

  10. Tat Wood Says:

    @Anna, Tor: It looks as though his leg came off and she’s holding it in place until the glue dries.

    The Messiah Scone
    “No wafer for me, thanks, and no wine either, I’ll just have the scone and some tea, then watch myself transform into the body and blood of Jesus.”

    She doesn’t look at all happy about it. Trying to keep him from deploying it, about to run away to the guys in the background hoping they’ll rescue her?

    Or is it that it really is what @THX suggested in (1) that’s caused the look on her face?

    Or just that she’s a woman stuck on a BAEN!pew pew rat a tat tat, thumpa thumpa cover?

    It’s KhaaaAAAAAN!

  14. Bruce A Munro Says:

    Those helicopters are really neatly pointed in the same direction. Maybe they have some sort of Blue Angels-type aerial act.

    So what happened with Hitler? Did he accidentally flush it down the toilet in ’42?

  15. Tor Mented Says:

    @B.C.: The Messiah Scone ought to be an Ace Double with Food of the Gods.

  16. GSS ex-noob Says:

    I’m really on the side of anyone who’s against scary glowy fake-ab Ting! man.

    Also, if anyone needed to look at the tags to determine the publisher, they haven’t spent enough time on GSS.

    Is the title embossed or just pointlessly shiny in hideous font?

    @Tor: Messiah Scone. Food of the Gods. Fruit Spread and Topping of the Deities. It could be a whole series, and then a spinoff series involving holy beverages.

  17. Longtime_Lurker Says:

    Just as long as it isn’t food of the Elder Gods, or we might have

    @Tor M 17—Keeping the thread alive, I mean, undead , , , GSS!

  19. Longtime_Lurker Says:

    BC: A quick google shows that the “X that came to Sarnath” meme has now infected at least 11 pages on this site (not counting the original page and this one). That proves something but I’m damned if I know what.

  20. B. Chiclitz Says:

    @Longtime_Lurker—It might prove we all need to get a life, or, more deeply, perhaps with this meme we have truly stumbled upon an incantation, a magic formula that transmutes any page into an homage to Bokrug the Detestable, perhaps we’ve found the linguistic equivalent of


  21. GSS ex-noob Says:

    There’s no escaping Elder Gods anywhere, or puns on GSS. Thus our creeping tribute to Bokrug. The whole site will eventually become

    I cannot stay silent any longer.

    It’s way past time that we SPEAK UP about the BLATANT sexual harassment of males on book covers like these!
