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: 6.50 out of 10)

    So Roald Dahl stole the Oompa-Loompahs from H.G. Wells? For shame!

    Has anyone photoshopped Jacob Rees-Mogg into that picture? The pose is almost exactly right

    Are we sure this isn’t a mistitled edition of Gulliver’s Travels?

    We don’t need no education,
    We don’t need no thought control,
    No dark sarcasm in the classroom.
    Teachers, leave them kids alone.

    I thought it was just the past that was in black and white but it appears the future will be so low budget it won’t even be able to afford shades of grey.

    I thought the Morlocks were bigger than that.

    @Tag W: new tag!

    @Tat: My “Make Trump Kittens Again” extension blocked that photo. Apparently the Hon. chap is in my block list. It auto-blocks photos of Trump, and then you can add in anyone else you want. So I have a lot of US Republicans, UK Tories, and non-political annoyances like all the Kardashians. All I see is lovely, lovely pictures of kittens. I recommend it to all.

    @B’mancer: My thought upon seeing this was “Unhand me, you ruffians!” This defines “unhand me” like few other representations could.

    @Everyone: delightful comments from all. GSS!

    @GSSxn, @Tag Wizard—IMHO the new tag is echt GSS 😉 I can’t wait to see the second entry in the category!
