1. Coming into view: The Grand Teatons!

2. “Ma’am put your clothes on. This is not the tanning booth. It’s the bank safe deposit box room.”

You might remember this from here.

Published 1979, 1982

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!

    It’s jet-propelled Chocolate Orange week on GSS.

    Does anybody else imagine “the brain wars” as being like a big, gory custard pie fight?

  9. Bruce A Munro Says:

    @Tat Wood: I hope so, because if that isn’t some sort of chocolate orange it’s two flying brains doing the nasty.

    Anyone want to add #1 to Wikipedia’s breast shaped Hill page.

  11. Bruce A Munro Says:

    So, the first cover is the more metaphorical version of the second one?

  12. GSS ex-noob Says:

    So I’m thinking both boobs and disembodied brains feature prominently in this book. Or at least appear enough that all the artists could include them in the covers.

    @Tat: Probably not any weirder than some of our other theme weeks.

    In good news, the leg brace boot thingy is gone.
    In bad news, I have moved on to the hell that is physical therapy, with a young man who seems to think I can rehab a non-functional joint as quickly as someone 30 years younger than I. Or even 20 years younger. With no additional painkillers to help. Can I have the fracture back?

  13. Verylatetotheparty Says:

    @GSSxn: If boobs and disembodied brains feature prominently in this book, I’m slightly disappointed that the artists haven’t COMBINED them on the covers. (The GSS gallery has taught me that all things are possible.)

    @anon: the second one is perfect.

    I don’t know how much time you spend on these, but it’s worth it to me.
