♫ One Of These Things (Is Not Like The Others)
One of these things is not like the others,
One of these things just doesn’t belong,
Can you tell which thing is not like the others
By the time I finish my song? ♫

Published 1972

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: 7.60 out of 10)

    Let’s find out who Tom chooses on today’s episode of The Dating Game.

    You’d be red-faced too if someone could read your daydreams.

  3. Francis Boyle Says:

    No wonder the guy in the middle looks pissed off. Kubrick promised to make him a star and now he’s stuck on this crappy book cover.

    Greatest ep of The Dating Game ever.

    When he suggested a ménage à trois*, this is not quite what he had in mind…or was it?

    *I think Google sometimes holds back on the search suggestions just to see me suffer with spelling.

    Edit: and I can’t count either. Let’s call it a menage a quatre.

  6. Raoul Says:

    Looking at the thought rings, his mind is totally centered on that monkey’s crotch.

  7. Alice Says:

    Unknown artist after being fired:
    “But I thought you said over the phone the book was The Other Side of Tom.

  8. THX 1139 Says:

    Tom ruefully considers people taller than him.

  9. Bruce A Munro Says:

    Judging from the comments, the cover artist either made a basic error or knew just what they were doing, the rascal.

    “Time is running backwards?” So the girl used to be an ape man – two ape men, in fact?

  10. Anna T. Says:

    Are they his past, his future, or something even stranger?

  11. Tor Mented Says:

    ♪ You’re once, twice, three times an apey. ♪

  12. The Commenter Formerly Known as Billy Awesome Says:

    *whistles innocently*

  13. Tat Wood Says:

    When time runs backwards, you don’t need to recapture a world, just wait a bit.

    Unless this is Laumer’s idea of how to write like Proust.

  14. B. Chiclitz Says:

    When time runs backwards, can we have another shot at some decently drawn feet?

  15. Tat Wood Says:

    That brief period when the Bee Gees replaced Robin with Madeleine Kahn.

  17. GSS ex-noob Says:

    @Tat: I’m curious to think which one you consider Barry and which Maurice.

  18. A.R.Yngve Says:

    When time runs backward, can a clunky cover blurb be erased?

    “Torn between two lovers…”
