From the GSS Slack Channel:

Tweet Jane: Where did you guys disappear to? I had to get the cleaning lady to let me in the locked offices.

GSS Admin: Sorry, I’ve been on August holiday. I’ve always promised myself a month in Bangkok.

Tweet Jane: August holiday? You haven’t returned from last August’s holiday. Your voice mail and mailbox are full.

GSS Admin: Gotta run. The cabana boy is bringing over the cocktails.

Tag Wizard: Sorry, but I’ve, uh, been detained. It’s all a misunderstanding. My solicitor will have it all straightened out in no time at all!

Tweet Jane: Well what about the 2000th Post? We were planning to a have a contest, and prizes, and a big month-long rollout.

Tag Wizard: Oh yeah. Slipped my mind. Go into the submission form and see what’s laying around. Something with nice pair of jubblies is always a hit. The password is on a post-it note somewhere on my desk.

Tweet Jane: And I’m taking all the petty cash. You haven’t paid me in two months.

    I’m just glad Fenella Fielding isn’t still alive to be reminded of this.

    Oh, and congratulations in order – here’s to the next twenty million!

    Remember, it’s not the quantity but not the quality that counts.

    Whoa. Trigger warning.

    They’re right. French women are different.

  5. B. Chiclitz Says:

    The cover is clearly the handiwork of a graduate of the Institute des Artistes Inconnu. Her pubes resemble a black hole, from which, of course, nothing can escape. Hence the baby has to exit via her navel.

    Tell Pat Say-jacques I’d like to buy a vowel.

    Those are some lop-sided teat shields on Samurai Sam.

    It’s time to party like it’s the year 2000!

    (nevermind that we’re 19 years, 8 months and 29 days too late)

    If that’s Univers 06 I think God could do with a little practice before he starts on Univers 07.

    A Good Show Sir Salute to samurais, Siamese, simians and Stukas.

  11. B. Chiclitz Says:

    @Tor M—I know the internets lends itself to pedantry, which I dislike, but since, as a boy, I once owned an gas-engined model of a Stuka, I’m pretty sure they didn’t have retractable wheels. I think this might be a Messerschmitt (although I am sure there are scores of GSSers more expert in military hardware than I who can clarify). At any rate, I think the point is that even in “univers 06” the French are still haunted by the epic failure of the Maginot Line.

    Congratulations on 200 covers! As they say in France, “Il y a un cochon dans ma baignoire”!

  13. Tom Noir Says:

    That lady looks pretty chill for someone with a machete in their back.

  14. Tor Mented Says:

    @BC: The odd thing is that I originally wrote “Messerschmitt.” Then I thought of “Stuka” and edited my post to change it.
    But I learned a valuable lesson: alliteration is just plane wrong.

  15. Tor Mented Says:

    Stumps. There’s also a stump.

  16. Tweet Jane Says:

    @daard23 – Thank you. But sorry you weren’t impressed by the other 1,800 covers.

  17. Longtime_Lurker Says:

    [email protected]: correct on both counts. It appears to be a Messerschmitt Bf109G.

  18. Tor Mented Says:

    Yes, I made a stuka mistake, and now I’m catching flak from all these Fokkers. 😉

  19. Bruce A Munro Says:

    Congrats on 2000! A long and eyeball-hurty trip.

    And a classic specimen for the honor. Guy on the left looks confused: like he’s been killin’ and is unsure if he should stop or not.

  20. GSS ex-noob Says:

    Rosemary’s Baby, or le Kuato?

  21. B. Chiclitz Says:

    @Tor M—you should make more mistakes, because your mea culpas are among the best posts on this thread! GSS 😉

  22. daard23 Says:

    @Tweet Jane: Oops! I’m in the U.S. forgot about the exchange rate. 2000 covers equals 2431.18 in the U.S., right?

  23. Bruce A Munro Says:

    @Tom Noir: no, he just pulled the machete out of her back, which, I think, makes him King of France.

    Nigel Farage’s “If We Don’t Brexit This Will Become the Future of the UK” poster ended up in some unexpected places.
